FOOTBALL have been poking fun at Tony Adams after it was confirmed he was joining Strictly Come Dancing – as they remembered his HILARIOUS moves.

The Arsenal legend, 55, will be eyeing up another piece of silverware on the BBC show later this year to add to his impressive trophy cabinet.



But within moments of the announcement, social media exploded with references to an iconic clip of ex-England defender Adams.

The then-Granada manager was filmed in 2017 giving some very animated instructions to his players.

And if his cumbersome and eccentric moves are anything to go by, the judges in the ballroom are in for some tricky evenings scoring the renowned hard-man.

One wrote on Twitter: "Tony Adams on Strictly Come Dancing? He's got a few moves to be fair."

Another said: "Good luck on Strictly, @TonyAdams."

A third quipped: "Can't wait to see Tony Adams bust these moves out on Strictly!"

And TV presenter Mark Pougatch added: "If Tony Adams isn’t made to do John Travolta and Saturday Night Fever then I’m not paying my licence fee…"

Supporters also reminisced over the time Adams famously dropped Gunners team-mate Steve Morrow after his goal in the 1983 League Cup final… and broke his arm.

His new dancing partner will be desperate there are no repetitions of that almighty blunder.

But Adams has his full focus on showing his twinkle toes on the dancefloor.

He said: “To say I’m excited is an understatement.

"The lure of the sequins and the call of the salsa has me swapping my battered old football boots for a set of Strictly soft shoes.

"I am absolutely thrilled to be giving it my all on this year’s 20th anniversary of Strictly Come Dancing.

"I can’t wait to meet my partner – god help her – and start the dancing.”
