Stuart Taylor deserves his contract extension for Southampton’s tweet alone

There have been some terrible and overly-elaborate transfer unveilings this summer, taking a page out of Manchester United’s book following their cringe-worthy Paul Pogba announcement made last year. Check out Everton’s lame attempt above or Aston Villa’s faux Whatsapp conversation below.

Thankfully, those with a level head and obviously of good taste at Southampton took to Twitter to mock this latest trend with arguably the greatest social media post ever made by a football club and that is said without bias.

He may have made precisely zero competitive appearances for Saints so far, but a man of Stuart Taylor’s stature within football is thoroughly deserving of both his contract extension and the star treatment the Saints marketing team are bestowing upon him.

Bravo, Southampton. Bravo.
