Rishi Sunak makes football gaffe at Manchester hustings
Rishi Sunak was talking about Southampton Football Club, telling people how much he enjoys supporting the south coast team, only to get a basic fact about them completely wrong.
Sunak has previously spoken about his hometown side and previously described himself as a “massive football fan”
But when conversation turned to the club at the hustings in Manchester on Friday night, he made an awkward gaffe.
When asked how he would get Saints back on form after a terrible run of results reaching back to the end of last season, he replied: "I'm going to be unpopular for saying it here, starting by beating [Manchester] United this weekend.”
