Danny Mills made his feelings clear about Manchester United on Sky Sports’ Football Show with an X-rated comment that was mistakenly broadcast live.
Manchester United are dominating the headlines in recent days, for all the wrong reasons, after they were dismantled by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool leading to claims for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be the next manager on the chopping block.
Mills featured alongside Middlesborough centre-back Sol Bamba and presenter Peter Graves on the show but as they believed they had cut to an ad break, Graves relaxed in his chair thanking his guests saying: “Great chat lads there, well done, that was really, really interesting.
“I could have listened to you two chat all day about the tactics and so on.”
To which the 44-year-old interjected labelling: “Basically, United are just s***”.
Graves and Bamba burst into laughter as the trio remained unaware that the coverage was still broadcast across the channel but Mills didn’t stop there reaffirming his point in three words: “But they are,” he remarked.
It’s no secret that he has no allegiances to Manchester United after forging a career at their fiercest rivals Manchester City and Leeds United during his career.
Between the two clubs, he made 152 league appearances with the majority coming at Elland Road so his comments towards the club given the current circumstances comes as no shock.
The misery compiled for Solskjaer after the demolition they suffered to the hands of Liverpool adding to their winless run in the Premier League which stretched to four games as a result of the defeat.
Watch what happened (warning: strong language):
Paul Pogba was given his marching order 15 minutes after emerging as a second-half substitute but by that time it was damage limitation after Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah hat-trick put the game well out of reach.
As a result, the Norwegian’s position as head coach has come under fire with a whole host of names being touted to succeed him including Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane.
However, he looks set to take charge for the visit to Spurs on Saturday.
