Sky Sports blunder leads to Danny Mills giving x-rated Man Utd verdict on live TV and football fans are in absolute hysterics.
Danny Mills gave his honest assessment of Manchester United’s current problems on Sky Sports when he thought the cameras had stopped rolling.
Liverpool’s 5-0 demolition of their North West rivals at Old Trafford has piled the pressure on United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils have now lost three of their last four league games, seeing them slip down to seventh in the table.
The former England full-back was asked to give his opinion on the issues at the club, with several managers being linked to replace Solskjaer, but viewers got a little bit more than they bargained for.
Presenter of ‘The Football Show’ Pete Graves appeared to thank his two guests for their contributions, believing Sky Sports had cut to an ad break.
“Basically, United are just s***”, Mills replied, prompting laughter from those also on air.
“But they are!” he reiterated, before the cameras finally cut away from the studio.

Meanwhile, United have been the talk of football since their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of fierce rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Many have called for Solskjaer to be sacked, but the manager is seemingly going to be given a chance to turn things around.
Mills and Bamba had been reflecting eloquently on the situation at the Premier League giants before what they, and Graves, thought was a break in the live coverage.
@Leonc33: Caught in 4k
The contrast in Mills’ brutal but true verdict when he thought he was able to speak freely made the howler even more hilarious.
It seems the error came on the Sky Sports Premier League channel where coverage had continued, while on Sky Sports News the advert break was in progress.
The broadcaster has since issued an apology upon returning from the adverts.
Solskjaer is under massive pressure to beat Spurs on Saturday but has the backing of Ed Woodward and Richard Arnold… for now.
He was even given a morale-boosting training ground visit by his former mentor Sir Alex Ferguson but will be under no illusions that drastically improved performances are needed.
Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly still the preferred option to come in if the club decide to sack Solskjaer, however he is under contract at PSG.
Antonio Conte is also another high-quality option and has the benefit of being unattached at the moment and is keen to replace Ole.
Solskjaer could also have dressing room fires to extinguish with Paul Pogba, who was sent off just minutes after coming on against Liverpool, understood to have apologised to team-mates but not his boss.
Pogba later described those claims as ‘big lies to make headlines’. See more on that HERE.
