Sky Sports Mistake Fan For Huddersfield's 'New Manager'
A Sky Sports reporter was left red-faced after he was sent out to speak with Huddersfield 's 'new manager.'
Yes, Sky thought they had spotted Borussia Dortmund under-23s coach Jan Siewert, who had been linked with the managerial position following the departure of David Wagner.
However, Patrick Davison made his way to the stands to speak with the man believed to be Siewert and soon realised that it wasn't him.
Check it out below.

Huddersfield linked with BvB coach Jan Siewert.
Sky think they spot him in the crowd and send a reporter to chat to him.
Turns out he's just some lad that looks a bit like him.
Possibly the greatest moment in the long and storied history of Sky Sports.

Manchester City defeated Huddersfield 3-0 at the John Smith's Stadium.
Danilo opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola's men in the first half. City would seal all three points after Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sané found the back of the net in the second half.
Earlier this week, Huddersfield announced that they would be parting ways with Wagner by mutual consent.
"We took this club to the highest position it has held in almost 50 years and created memories that will last forever," says Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle.
"His achievements will rightly put him up there in Huddersfield Town history alongside great names like Herbert Chapman and Mick Buxton; legendary managers who changed the face of this club.
"As I have said previously, I had no intention of sacking David this season. Subsequently, David -- being the great man he is -- came to us and made it clear that he needs a break from the rigours of football management.
"We discussed making that change immediately, but he also made it clear he would give his all for the rest of this season before departing in the summer if we preferred.
"We all felt that David staying at the club until the end of the season was best, but we've kept discussions open and we all now feel that the time is right to part ways.
"I know the term 'mutual consent' is often a byword for the manager being sacked in professional football, but this is a truly joint decision. David has a real, genuine love for this club and, like me, his foremost concern in our talks has been to establish what is best for Huddersfield Town."
Will City win the Premier League title?
