Russian station NTV committed a cardinal football sin on Wednesday: they confused Manchester City with Manchester United.
In a segment ahead of City’s Champions League group match away at CSKA Moscow, NTV dropped a clanger by flashing the logo on Man United on the screen.
The badge of the Red Devils appeared on the screen for the opening 15 seconds of the news report, which was more than enough time for the FAIL to get spread from Russia to further afield.
