Ryan Reynolds left the BBC studio in stitches with comment about Sheffield United

Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds left the BBC studio in stitches prior to Wrexham’s FA Cup clash against Sheffield United.

Reynolds is the co-owner of non-league side Wrexham after taking over the club alongside fellow TV star Rob McElhenney back in 2021.

Wrexham just missed out on promotion last season but are currently on what could be a magical cup run.

Championship side Coventry were shocked by Wrexham in the last round as the Welsh club advanced to set up a tie with another second-tier side, Sheffield United.

Prior to kick-off, Reynolds was speaking to BBC Match of the Day host Gary Lineker and pundits Alan Shearer and Mark Hughes.

The Hollywood star left the studio in stitches after his cheeky comment about Sheffield United needing a miracle to win the match.

He said: “I get nervous for a match like today.

“Sheffield United are three leagues above us, 70 teams above us. It’s a classic David vs Goliath.

“You guys know this more than anybody on earth, this is football. This is the beautiful game. And I’m going to go on record and say there’s a chance…albeit a slim chance that Sheffield United pulls off a miracle today!”

His comment left Shearer and co. smiling from ear to ear.

Reynolds also outlined his ambitious plans for Wrexham’s future.

He added: “In 10 years’ time the plan has and always will be the Premier League.

“If it’s theoretically possible to go from the fifth tier to the Premier League, why wouldn’t we try?

“Nobody has ever done anything great in this world thinking: ‘You know what, let’s go halfway’, so let’s go all the way and we believe we can do that. Call us crazy, but that's what we want to do.

“Because we’re in this church today [the Racecourse Ground], if I was Sheffield United I’d be taking this game very seriously. That’s all I’ll say.”

Wrexham were denied a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup after a late Sheffield United goal forced a replay.
