Danny Mills offered his unfiltered thoughts on Manchester United while live on Sky Sports, not realising the cameras were still rolling.
United were battered 5-0 by Liverpool at Old Trafford over the weekend, and Mills was on Sky Sports' 'The Football Show' to discuss the game along with Sol Bamba and presenter Peter Graves.
Graves, who had been discussing the current situation at United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's precarious position as manager, said: "Great chat lads, well done, that was really interesting."
And Mills, not realising he was still live on air, said: "Basically United are sh*t."
Presenter Graves and fellow pundit Bamba laughed off his comment, while the former Manchester City and Leeds player tried to justify himself before the broadcast went into an ad break.
Following the results in recent weeks, many Old Trafford faithful are calling for Solskjaer to be sacked, but the Norwegian looks set to stay at the club for the near future.
Speaking before the clash with Liverpool, Solskjaer admitted his side aren't on the same level as the Reds. "They're one of the teams we're chasing. What they've done in the last four years is something we're striving towards and trying to go past them," he said.
"We ended up above them last season but they had a very bad spell, maybe because of bad luck with injuries - now they are back to their best. We have not won the league in the last eight years. You can understand Manchester City or Liverpool walking on to the pitch and thinking quality is enough. We have players who need to keep on improving and developing."
