Gary Lineker’s best ever tweets as England legend celebrates 60th birthday

Gary Lineker celebrated his 60th birthday with a string of comical tweets.

With responses to both Piers Morgan and Raheem Sterling earning applause from his 7.7million followers, the Match of the Day presenter continued his streak of hilarious social media uploads.

The former Leicester, Everton, Barcelona, Tottenham and England striker has regularly poked fun at his association with crisps and infamous accident on the pitch, while also praising the sport he loves and questioning the views of those he disagrees with.

Now, after he called Morgan ‘Dad’ and Sterling ‘toddler’, Daily Star Sport have taken a look at five of his best tweets in recent memory to celebrate his latest birthday.

In a simple view of playing Germany at international football, Lineker once said: “Football is a simple game.”

“22 men chase the ball for 82 minutes and the Germans get a player sent off so 21 men chase the ball for 13 minutes and at the end the Germans somehow f****** win.”

One amusing review of a visit from President Trump read: “Terrific movement from The Queen here.

“Gets behind the defender, goes one way then cuts back inside. Regal attacking play.”

Following England’s semi-final exit from the 2018 World Cup, he wrote: ““Dear non English football fans.

“Football’s coming home is a fun song highlighting the lack of success of our football team for decades.

“No one really thought we’d win it.

“I totally get why you might think it was arrogance, but it’s more our self deprecatory sense of humour.”

When arguing with Piers Morgan over Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo, he said: “Stick to anything but football. Ronaldo is a wonderful footballer, but Messi’s numbers this year are superior.

“His play is on another level. He too won a double.

“Just because you interviewed him doesn’t make him better.“

And a final pandemic themed offering reading: “News that @Ibra_official has tested positive with Coronavirus. Thoughts are with the virus at this difficult time.”
