'I Don't Like Them' - Billy Sharp Rips Into 'Disrespectful' Derby Fans In One Of The Most Brutal Post-Match Interviews Ever

In one of the most brutally honest post-match interviews you're ever likely to see, Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp said he was "delighted" to have scored against Championship rivals Derby because he "doesn't like them".

The 35-year-old netted the only goal of the game on Saturday afternoon; a penalty in the 89th minute following a handball from defender Curtis Davies.

Sharp emphatically converted from the spot and proceeded to celebrate by running towards the away section at speed after a section of travelling supporters gave the experienced forward some serious stick throughout.

Sharp didn't stop there. In a fiesty post-match interview with Sheffield United's in-house media team, the former Southampton and Leeds United player expressed his delight after scoring against a team he doesn't like.

"I wish I could play against them every week," he said.

"I think their fans were disrespectful. I don't mind stick, but if they are going to give me that all game then they deserve it back. I am delighted I have scored because I don't like them.

"I was pretty nervous over the penalty because of what happened with the last one (at Hull). I was happy to see it go in and my emotions took over."

Championship strugglers Derby County currently sit bottom of the league on -2 points after the club were docked 12 points by the English Football League for entering into administration, but they did put up a fight against The Blades on Saturday.

Rams boss Wayne Rooney felt the result was cruel on his team, who finished the game with 10-men after goalkeeper Kelle Roos was sent off for a challenge on match winner Billy Sharp.

"Yes, it's cruel but that's football," Rooney said after the game.

"The plan today was to try and stay in the game and nick that win in the last 10 or 15 minutes. I thought we were on course to do that.

"Of course Sheffield United had more possession than us, but we were sticking in there but we probably had the best chances of the game. Another day we take one of them, and it is different, and obviously the red card changes those plans."

Sheffield United, meanwhile, sit in 11th place after a steady start to the Championship campaign. Do you think Slavisa Jokanovic's side can achieve promotion to the Premier League?
