The six Premier League stars behind secret 'Avengers' WhatsApp group responsible for new 'A' celebration

A WHATSAPP group called The Avengers is behind a new celebration shared by James Maddison, Jack Grealish and pals.

A troop of Premier League stars have begun flashing an 'A' symbol with their hands when celebrating goals.


And Leicester star Maddison has revealed the players behind the symbol.

Along with Ben Chilwell, the midfielder said he and a few friends from the game keep in touch over WhatsApp.

Maddison told EA Sports: "We have a little group chat called The Avengers.

"Jack Grealish, Ross Barkley, Dele Alli and John McGinn are the footballers [in the group]."

Maddison, 23, has been in and out of Brendan Rodgers' side in the Premier League this season.

Linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer, the playmaker stayed put in Leicester but bid farewell to a friend in doing so.

England defender Chilwell left for Chelsea and Maddison has described their close friendship in the game.

He noted: "Obviously he was my best friend [at Leicester] and welcomed me into the club.




"I knew him through the England Under-21s anyway. Over the years, you just have that one guy you come across at clubs who is your best friend.

"Who you'll have a coffee with and see outside of football and stuff.

"And that was Chilly for me and we built up a great relationship on and off the pitch."
