SHEFFIELD UNITED matchwinner David McGoldrick swore live on TV after his side’s win against Chelsea put them on the cusp of European football.
Sky Sports were forced to apologise for McGoldrick’s choice language as he fielded questions after bagging a brace in the Blades’ 3-0 win.
David McGoldrick let slip an expletive live on Sky Sports
Interviewer Geoff Shreeves – who himself was once told to “f*** off” by Sir Alex Ferguson – was probing McGoldrick on Sheffield United‘s chances of qualifying for Europe.
The Blades have never competed on the continent before and Chris Wilder has been notably reluctant to talk about their Europa League prospects despite sitting in sixth place.
He clearly passed the message onto his players as McGoldrick’s fearful reply showed.
He told Sky Sports: “If I say anything else, I’d get a b******ing from the gaffer, so I’m just mirroring what the gaffer says.”
Sky Sports were forced to say sorry for the swearing from McGoldrick with host Kelly Cates quick to apologise for any offence caused to viewers.
But fans on Twitter loved the response, one supporter commented: “Love it…On cloud nine bless him.”
McGoldrick can be forgiven for being a tad over excited after finally scoring his first Premier League goals.
The 32-year-old striker had gone 1,614 minutes without finding the net this season before breaking the deadlock in the 18th minute.
And after waiting so long to open his top-flight account, his second arrived just 59 minutes later when he slammed home to seal a man of the match performance.
