PICTURE: Manchester United cock-up leaves media outlets red faced

The Premier League is finally back after the summer but Sky Sports weren’t ready for it by the looks of things.

When showing who was on Manchester United’s substitutes yesterday, they used a picture of Antonio Valencia for Wilfried Zaha. The Park Ji Sung addition was a parody added by @EvilKagawa.

Given how much money they get from football, they could at least get the names and faces of the team right.

But the embarrassing thing is that Sky Sports’ blunder wasn’t even the worst one as the BBC topped it later on when they showed their United lineup on Match of the Day. Who is Phil Jones, Fabio, Shinji Kagawa and Wilfried Zaha?
