Cole Palmer asks reporter “you thought I played s***?” during awkward interview

Cole Palmer asks reporter “you thought I played s***?” during awkward interview

Cole Palmer took part in an interview with talkSPORT and shared a hilarious moment with the reporter.

Cole Palmer produced more interview hilarity when he asked a reporter, "You thought I played s**t?!".

The Chelsea star was one of the top performers in the Premier League last season, scoring 22 goals and registering 11 assists following on from his £42.5 million move from Manchester City.

Palmer has been capped six times by England, scoring once from the spot in a friendly against Bosnia.

He's made two appearances at Euro 2024 but is still looking for his first start at the tournament.

But in a new interview with talkSPORT, the reporter told Palmer she thought he looked like he was "overthinking things" in a game.

The game in question appeared to be the pre-Euros warm up game against Newcastle and Palmer clapped back by asking, "Overthinking what?".

Then when Faye Carruthers, the journalist, clarified that she was referring to him playing football, Palmer replied, "You thought I played s**t?" and laughter from both sides occured.

After saying he was "only joking", Palmer did then concede the statement may have been true.

He added: "I don't know. It was my first start. Maybe you're right. When I'm playing and not thinking, doing whatever - that's when I play best."

There is plenty of talk that Gareth Southgate could rip up his approach and revert

to a back three in Saturday's quarter final showdown with Switzerland.

It could mean Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden both line up behind Harry Kane.

Palmer, meanwhile, has told Southgate his preferred position going into the clash.

Asked where he likes to play the most, Palmer said: "Anywhere near the net! "Maybe not on the left but maybe as a right forward.

"I don’t mind the left. Sometimes I like it when I go across the pitch then go on the left for a bit to get the ball in. Sometimes it is pretty fun on the left."
