Fans horrified at Michael Owen’s new nickname on BT Sport and beg for it to ‘stop immediately’

BT SPORT viewers were left begging for the ‘worst thing’ they’d ever heard to stop during the coverage of Real Madrid’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

And it was that man Michael Owen who was involved at the centre of it again.

BT SPORT viewers were left raging over Michael Owen tonight

Fans were irate when his fellow pundits and the host referred to him as ‘Mo’

The former Liverpool striker was joined as a studio guest by his ex-England and Anfield team-mate Steve McManaman.

But as the pair, who both also played for Madrid, were analysing the upcoming game the dropped a cringeworthy verbal bomb.

And it sent Twitter into meltdown as McManaman referred to Owen by a nickname of ‘Mo’ during the coverage before their colleagues continued it.

One viewer tweeted: “Mcmanaman calling Michael Owen “Mo” might be the worst thing I think I’ve ever heard.”

Another wrote: “Please don’t refer Michael Owen as ‘Mo’ ever again.”

A fellow fan that was tuned in commented: “Sorry…since when has Michael Owen been known as ‘Mo’. Am I late to this. He probably gave the nickname to himself.”

As another infuriated viewer said: “Did the presenter on @btsportfootball just call Michael Owen “MO” … who’s started this, that needs to stop immediately!”

It’s not the first time that the 42-year-old 2001 Balon d’Or winner has caused a storm.

He was previously labelled ‘the most boring pundit in sport’ after a previous appearance on the box.
