Okore posts Twitter message after Black named in Telegraph investigation
By Amir Mir
Jores Okore claimed on Twitter his night “just got better” shortly after former Aston Villa caretaker boss Eric Black was named in the latest Telegraph sting.
The Telegraph reported on Thursday evening that Southampton’s assistant manager Black allegedly offered advice on how to bribe club officials.
The 52-year-old who was Villa’s assistant and caretaker boss last season, managed former defender Okore at Villa, where the duo fell out over selection.
As reported by Sky Sports in April, Okore had to deny accusations by Black, who claimed the Danish centre-back refused to play for the club after failing to make the starting XI against Bournemouth.
When the Telegraph named Black in their latest sting, Okore then posted this message on his personal Twitter account:

Okore left Villa during the summer transfer window and made a move back to his native Denmark to sign a permanent deal for FC Copenhagen.
The powerful centre-back made 47 appearances for the Midlands club, but failed to live up to expectations during his three-year stay at Villa Park.
Current Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo sold the defender after he made only one appearance during the 3-1 loss to Luton Town in the EFL Cup.
In other Aston Villa news, Stan Collymore has stated he would gladly drive this manager to replace Roberto Di Matteo.
