TOMMY FURY has been heavily criticized on social media for his performance at Soccer Aid 2023… despite not being a soccer player.
Tommy swapped his boxing gloves for a pair of football boots at Old Trafford as he joined the world selection for a good cause on Sunday.
The British boxer has competed with numerous legendary athletes, including Roberto Carlos, Francesco Totti, Hernan Crespo and Usain Bolt.
Facing England, they featured a number of Three Lions greats including Paul Scholes, Jermain Defoe, Gary Neville and Sir Mo Farah.
Tommy started on the bench and was brought on by new Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino after 21 minutes to replace Maisie Adam to loud applause from the crowd.
However, Tyson Fury’s brother failed to set the pitch on fire in the same way he did in the ring against the likes of Jake Paul.
That led to a dig from his new rivals KSI, who branded him “awful” on social media
The YouTuber, who is following a multi-million pound duel with the former Love Island star, tweeted: “Tommy Fury should stick to boxing he’s terrible at football.”
Fans joined in on Twitter, with some even branding him – rather unfairly – as the “worst” athlete to kick a ball.
One fan wrote: “Tommy Fury is one of the worst footballers I’ve ever seen!”
Another commented: “Tommy Fury is the worst player to ever kick a ball.”
A third joked: “Chelsea have just bid £90m for Tommy Fury.”
This fan said: “Tommy Fury makes Chunkz look like Ronaldo.”
And he tweeted: “Tommy Fury can’t kick a football right.”

While some fans poked fun at his skills, Tommy actually showed a moment of brilliance as he drove Arsenal icon Jack Wilshere insane with his first touch of the ball.
More importantly, the boxer helped Soccer Aid raise a whopping £14,619,005 for UNICEF and his team also won 4-2.
England were trailing thanks to Bolt but Asa Butterfield equalized for the hosts before Manchester United legend Scholes turned the corner.
However, Tottenham star Robbie Keane brought the world eleven back to the top with two superb finishes before Kem Cetinay secured victory.
