Tom Brady admitted that he has a lot to learn about English football, but at least he knows how to kick a ball.
Images of the NFL’s top quarterback posing for pictures in a Birmingham jersey surfaced on social media Thursday, hours after his shocking investment was announced.
And at the end of the clip, which appears to be staged, Brady puts down a football he had been holding and kicks it at the person filming it. They then fall over and appear to drop the camera on him.
Brady, who also turned 46 on Thursday, shocked the sports world with his announcement of a foray into English soccer.
“So here’s the deal, I’m officially joining Birmingham City Football Club,” Brady said in a social media video.

‘And you may be asking me what you know about English football, Tom. Well, let’s just say I have a lot to learn.
“But I do know a few things about winning, and I think they translate pretty well.”
Last year, Birmingham finished 17th out of 24 teams in the Championship, the second tier of English football.
Birmingham manager John Eustace has said that success in the team will be a process.
Speaking on Wednesday, he said: ‘The club has been taken over by some very passionate and powerful people and they care deeply. They want to grow this club and make it a force.
‘That will be done over time, not in a short period. It takes two, three, four or five years. Eventually it will be up there.
Birmingham plays its first game of the new Championship season on Saturday against Welsh team Swansea.
