The former Chelsea star was not spared the traditional hazing ceremony in front of his new team-mates, but he carried it off well
John Terry may be one of the most decorated players in English football, but that still didn’t grant him immunity from an initiation at his new club Aston Villa.
The 36-year-old joined Villa from Chelsea after bringing the curtain down on a 22-year spell at Stamford Bridge and, as is tradition at many clubs, he was expected to sing a song in front of his new team-mates.

In a video shared on Twitter by Villa youngster Andre Green, Terry is joined by what looks to be a guitar-playing chef, and he totally relishes the moment.
Have a look at the performance above – what do you think? Does JT have the X Factor? Villa fans will certainly hope so!
