Erik Alonso, the prospective Derby County owner, has deleted his Twitter account after being accused of re-using footage of a large property included in a TikTok video to claim it was his own house. The 29-year-old has faced questions from the English Football League after failing to provide proof of funds, having previously agreed to take over from current Derby owner Mel Morris last month. Alonso has been a regular user of Twitter, posting his support for the Championship club, but his drawn-out takeover has seen several of the club’s supporters question whether he really has the financial backing to complete the deal. On Tuesday, Alonso posted a video showing off a lavish home alongside the caption ‘Good Morning’, which was adjudged by Derby fans to be a swipe at those questioning his wealth. But one user quickly spotted that the video was the same as one published on TikTok by Los Angeles-based luxury real estate agent Davis Pfaff. The home, which was described by Pfaff as being worth $60,000,000, appeared with a backing track of Lose Control by Meduza, Becky Hill and Goodboys.
