THE Sky Sports commentary team were forced to apologise after Kevin De Bruyne was heard swearing in Manchester City’s loss to Tottenham.
Spurs took an early lead in the match thanks to Heung-Min Son fifth-minute strike.De Bruyne was head yelling expletives at the linesman
Clearly frustrated with falling behind so early, De Bruyne let his emotions show.
With no fans present and fake crowd noise optional, viewers have been able to hear everything going on in the Premier League this season.
And pitchside monitors in North London picked up De Bruyne yelling expletives at linesman Darren Cann.
The Belgian midfielder was attempting to take a quick corner with Riyad Mahrez but the option was shut down by Tottenham’s Steven Bergwijn.
De Bruyne was then irked when Bergwijn encroached the ten-yard radius from the corner spot.
City’s captain raged at the linesman: “Look where the line is!
“Look where the f***ing line is!”
