Lip reader reveals exactly what Travis Kelce said to coach during 'inappropriate' Super Bowl incident

A lipreader has revealed exactly what Travis Kelce said to his coach in a heated moment during Super Bowl 58.

On Sunday a record-breaking audience watched the Kansas City Chiefs pull off a dramatic Super Bowl win in Las Vegas, as they defeated the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 after the match had gone to overtime.

An inspired second half performance from Kelce saw his side crowned the best team in the NFL for the third time in five years, although it was an off-field incident that went viral and sparked debate online.

The tight-end - who attracted plenty of attention in the build-up to the game thanks to his relationship with pop superstar Taylor Swift - clashed his head coach Andy Reid on the sideline.

Reid had taken his star out of the offensive formation for a play that resulted in a fumble at a point in the game where the 49ers were starting to dominate. It's safe to say that Kelce wasn't happy with his coach's decision.

The 34-year-old shouted in Reid's face and grabbed him by the arm, with the 65-year-old almost falling over as he momentarily lost his balance. Kelce had to be pulled away by teammate Jerick McKinnon.

Television cameras caught the whole incident, and now a lipreader has revealed exactly what Kelce said.

The expert told the Daily Mail that the 34-year-old said: "Keep me in [the game]. You f****r! I'm calm now!"

Reid played down the incident after the game, saying: "He caught me off-balance - normally I get him a little bit but I didn't have any feet under me.

"He loves to play the game and he loves to help his team win, it's not a selfish thing.

"As much as he bumps into me, I get after him. We understand that. He just caught me off balance."

Reid also told reporters that Kelce had said something along the lines of "keep me in [on the field], I'll score."

When asked after the match about the incident Kelce said: "Ah, you guys saw that? I'm a keep that between us unless my mic'd up tells the world. I was just telling him how much I love him."

SPORTbible has contacted a representative of Travis Kelce for comment.
