Former Manchester United forward Louis Saha left Jamie Carragher in hysterics and Sky Sports apologising for his language after a cameo appearance on the channel on Friday morning.
Saha, who had been trailed by ‘The Football Show’ presenter Kelly Cates as a special guest, appeared towards the end of the live show along with Carragher and the Frenchman’s former United teammate Gary Neville.
The ex-Everton man was joining a lively debate which had featured Carragher and Neville’s views on how the football season will come to an end, as well as input from Football League chief executive Rick Parry andLeicesterCity boss Brendan Rodgers.
But Saha’s appearance soon added a lighter element to proceedings, and when welcoming him to the show, Neville asked: “Why is it that you used to turn up for all team meetings like 15 seconds before the exact time of them and wind me up?”
Saha simply laughed at the question, and said: “I knew that I could p*** you off, so was doing that on purpose maybe!”
His abrupt words left Carragher in hysterics at his end of the video call, and forced presenter Cates to apologise, adding: “I think we may have picked something up in translation there Louis… although annoying Gary is certainly at the top of anyone’s wishlist.”
“It would be nice to hear from them to hear about the challenges they’ve been facing, and reassure everybody that discussions are taking place,” he said.
