Watch Peter Crouch's shocking touch on BT Sport as pundit apologies for 'letting friends, family and myself down' | The Sun

FORMER England, Tottenham and Liverpool ace Peter Crouch apologised for his shocking touch on BT Sport ahead of Manchester United's visit to Southampton.

The 108 Premier League goal ex-striker, 41, has moved into punditry since his 2019 retirement.




But it appears he hasn't been practicing much with a football.

Ahead of kick-off at St Mary's, United legends Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes decided to have a kick about.

Ferdinand couldn't help but turn away from Crouch as he laughed.

On the poor touch, one fan said on Twitter: "Not in front of Scholes mate."

Another replied: "Head up Crouchie, wind caught that one."
