"What’s happened to Sky Sports man?" fans fume over Micah Richards discussion of pundits' 'drip'

Micah Richards, Roy Keane and Theo Walcott have divided fans after turning their attention to fashion ahead of Arsenal and Manchester United’s Premier League clash.

The Gunners are gearing up to host United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and Mikel Arteta’s squad will be hoping to claim a third consecutive home win over the Red Devils.

Ahead of the Premier League game, ex-United midfielder Roy Keane and former Arsenal star Theo Walcott have been capturing behind-the-scenes content for Sky Sports. They have also been joined by Manchester City icon, Micah Richards.

In a recent video posted to the official Sky Sports Premier League Twitter page, the trio have been discussing their outfit choices for Super Sunday.

In a recent video posted to the official Sky Sports Premier League Twitter page, the trio have been discussing their outfit choices for Super Sunday.

In a clip shared with the account's 11.6 million followers, Richards panned the camera to 34-year-old Walcott and said: “Looking fantastic though - look at the drip! Look at the drip, yes!”

The pundit then went into detail regarding the outfit that the recently retired footballer decided to wear to broadcast.

“He’s gone with the cream pants, the brown shoes,” Richards stated before being interrupted by a bout of fake coughing - courtesy of Keane.

After drawing attention to himself, the 52-year-old held his arms out wide before stating that he was wearing a ‘new little number’.

“Only had it about five years,” he joked.

However, the lighthearted clip has divided some football fans, with many taking the time to air their frustrations with the broadcaster.

One wrote: “What’s happened to Sky Sports man? Roy Keane must be dying inside putting up with these f******* man childs.”

A second agreed and commented: “£60 a month for Micah Richards to be talking about drip, what a waste of money that is.”

“They look like NPC’s in a bank in Grand Theft Auto,” replied a third.

Despite the negative feedback though, many have found the funny side to the unlikely fashion icons.

One quoted the video and wrote: “Keano said… AYOOOO… Don’t sleep on my M&S ensemble fammo.”

A second commented that the pundits looked “smart”.

Another said: “Roy is an old man while Teo is a young lad that has style.”

In another video, shot again by the former England international, Keane and his co-host discussed which side was the ‘bigger club’ right now.

“Arsenal finished above United so if you’re going right now, for me, I would have to say them. I feel like they’re a bit more organised,” said Walcott.

Keane, obviously disagreeing with his companion, put a hand on his shoulder and claimed that he was, “so naive and young, huh?”

Regarding the comments, one fan replied: “Of course, they're the better team (sic) right now. Isn't it obvious to everyone?”

A second agreed and wrote: “No lies detected.”

However, many viewers sided with the former Irish international whom declared Manchester United as the ‘bigger’ club.

“Theo we see through your lies,” said one fan.

“ How? We have more UCLs, more titles. What is he on about?”
