Sky Sports reporter gets blanked by Erik ten Hag at Man Utd press conference

Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag snubbed a Sky Sports reporter today at a press conference before this weekend's Premier League action. The opening questions were asked by the journalists and answered promptly by the former Ajax boss, but Gary Cotterill of Sky was surprisingly refused a question. After the initial reporter finished his questioning, you can hear Mr Cotterill initiate the next line of questioning from Sky.

In the midst of this, Bill Rice of the BBC interrupts Mr Cotterill saying “Bill Rice, Bill Rice BBC”. It seems largely unfair on the Sky reporter as it was clear he had already begun his line of questioning. Ten Hag turned his attention to Rice without a second look at Cotterill. The Sky reporter was therefore denied the opportunity to speak with ten Hag before the embargoed section of questioning. According to The Manchester Evening News: ” Sky Sports usually have reasonable access to the club and Cotterill was not happy with the snub. “He expressed his disappointment after being overlooked during the press conference but the questioning moved on regardless.” Manchester United travel to St Mary's to take on Southampton this weekend, after a hugely impressive victory against Liverpool on Monday.
