Birmingham City: Fans react to Jefferson Montero’s tweet

Jefferson Montero made his Birmingham City debut in Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Barnsley, replacing Alvaro Gimenez in the 80th minute.

The Ecuadorian may not have scored, but he certainly gave a sign of what he can do for Blues going forward, as he twisted the opposition defenders inside out.

To the delight of many, he then went and tweeted a mini-montage of his exploits on the pitch:

Many Bluenoses are thrilled to see him join the club, though another part some fans picked up on is the reference to Chucho.

Christian Benitez represented Birmingham 36 times, scoring four goals and assisting six times, as per Transfermarkt, becoming a much-loved figure in the process.

The wide sense of feeling is that if Montero can reach the same sort of level his countryman did in Birmingham then he will also become a very popular figure at St. Andrews’.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the video, including posts from appreciative Birmingham fans, can be seen below:
