There are a lot of things we all don’t like about the rapid rise and commercialisation of football in the last few years – overhyped drab fixtures, overpriced match tickets, overindulged average footballers but transfer announcement videos isn’t one of them!

Marathonbet have decided to pick our top five transfer announcement videos.

Can anyone beat Zlatan’s introduction to life in LA (below)?


1. Paul Pogba – Man Utd

The world waited for Paul Pogba to be announced and Man Utd delivered with the help of Adidas. The German sports brand yet again showed why they’re the kings of social media.


2. Oscar Gobern – Yeovil Town

At the other end of the footballing spectrum, with a speck of the budget Man Utd possess but just as enjoyable was plucky Yeovil Town. The League Two club have fast become renowned for their clever and creative ways of announcing players using FIFA, Snapchat and Tinder – hard pressed to pick one. we went with the latter…


3. Samuel Eto’o – Atiker Konyaspor

Many clubs have seen success in piggy-backing off current trends. Turkish side Konyaspor did just that when they managed to land a massive coup in signing double Champions League winner Eto’o, by cleverly playing on the famous intro of popular TV series Game of Thrones. GoT fans will have enjoyed this more than others…


4. Stuart Taylor – Southampton

The Saints announced the contract extension of their third-string goalkeeper last summer and won Twitter in the process. In a tongue-in-cheek attempt to dig out most clubs’ Hollywood-esque announcement videos, Southampton had the world of social media in stitches as a result.


5. Peter Hartley – Motherwell

Another amusing dig at the rising trend and obsession in announcement videos saw Scottish club Motherwell fire a rather humorous shot Man Utd’s way. Days after the announcement of Alexis Sanchez, Motherwell replied with a parody attempt of unveiling ex-Blackpool and Plymouth defender Peter Hartley.
