Sky Sports were forced to apologise when Nottingham Forest captain Joe Worrall swore during an emotional post-match interview – after his side’s Championship play-off success.
Steve Cooper’s Forest side secured a place in the Premier League next season after beating Huddersfield 1-0 at Wembley, with Levi Colwill’s own-goal separating the sides.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Worrall said: ‘Like I keep saying we’ve been really good, not just this season.
‘I’m not saying we’ve been good in the past seasons because we haven’t.
‘We’ve been s***e but it’s been a long time coming at this club.’
The Sky reporter was then forced to light-heartedly apologise and say: ‘Joe it’s understandable with your emotions but we must apologise for your language there.’

Worrall’s post-match interview didn’t end there, with the defender referring to Forest as a ‘whipped dog’ after years of mistreatment in the Championship.
Describing his team, Worrall said: ‘I keep using the expression of ‘like a whipped dog’.
‘If you treat any dog with kindness they become a nice dog, if you mistreat one then they are aggressive, we were, we’ve been a mistreated team.’
The strange statement serves as a tribute to the positive atmosphere that Steve Cooper has instilled at the soon-to-be Premier League side.
