BBC Radio 5 Live’s Chris Sutton has made a bit of a prat of himself in a recent broadcast.
In a tweet shared by the station’s official Twitter account, the host can be heard agreeing with a Leicester City fan moaning about Liverpool.
People complaining about the reigning champions is nothing new, but the reason – which Sutton thought was “valid” – is quite interesting.
The Foxes’ fan told Chris he’s “sick and tired” of people feeling sorry for the Reds because of injuries.
Correct us if we’re wrong, but all we’ve seen is rival supporter shockingly celebrating our recent fitness woes – nobody is feeling sorry for us.
Anyway, the Leicester fan goes off on one about how nobody cares about their injuries – but there’s a reaction when we lose Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Thiago, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in a period of a few weeks. Mad, isn’t it?
Take a look at the video below (via BBC Radio 5 Live):
"I just don't understand why everyone's suddenly feeling sorry for Liverpool" 🤨

Needless to say, we don’t think very highly of the opinions shared by the Leicester fan and Sutton for agreeing with the idiotic take and even for allowing it on the air.
Our writer Ste Carson perhaps summed it up best with his snappy reply on Twitter:
Getting as bad as talkSport, you lot
