Sky Sports forced to apologise for disgusting Jimmy Savile chants during Salford vs Leeds | Football | Sport


Salford hosted Leeds in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

It’s the first time the sides have met, however, disgusting fan chants became the main talking point during the game.

Salford fans began singing about Leeds-born Savile, who passed away in 2011.

Leeds fans responded with their own song about the former television personality.

Sky Sports’ commentator said: “Apologies if you were offended by anything you heard in the last few minutes.”

Football fans took to social media after hearing the chants to voice their concern.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “Watching Leeds Utd Vs Salford on TV and the SJS chants have started (as usual) and the commentator has just said ‘I apologise if you are offended by what you’ve just heard’.

“Well I am bloody offended.”

Another added: “Sky sports commentator just had to apologise for Jimmy Saville chants at the Salford v Leeds match.”

“Just watching the Salford v Leeds game and I’m sure the Salford fans have just been singing about Jimmy Savile – think that’s a bit over the top,” said another viewer.

Another viewer said: “Sky dubbing crowd noise to lessen the Leeds fans singing.”

“Are Leeds fans chanting about jimmy savile?” one fan asked.
