Ian Holloway leaves Scott Minto in hysterics after Adebayo Akinfenwa joke

Published 2 Comments

Ian Holloway is one of football’s funny men.

The experienced manager has produced some classic one-liners over the years and certainly has a way with words. It’s never dull when the 53-year-old is conducting an interview or a press conference.

It was no surprise, then, that Holloway left Sky Sports’ presenter Scott Minto in fits of laughter earlier this week while analysing AFC Wimbledon’s play-off win over Accrington Stanley on Wednesday. (Scroll down to watch the video).

Holloway was talking about Adebayo Akinfenwa, the powerful Wimbledon striker, when he cracked a little joke that let Minto in stitches.

“The man’s just unplayable,” Holloway said of Akinfenwa on Sky Sports. “And his header, talk about the skill he’s got. It’s alright him being slaughtered week-in, week out for his size, but a lot of that’s just power.

“Yeah, he does eat the odd bit, I imagine. Heard he had a twin and he eat him but, you know, he’s just brilliant.”

Minto was in absolute hysterics by this point and this made Holloway laugh and apologise.

The former Blackpool and Crystal Palace boss, who left Millwall last year, attempted to carry on but had to stop again because of Minto. The retired defender couldn’t compose himself.

“What you laughing at Scott?” Holloway said while also laughing himself. “I got him there, look at him!”

It was a very funny moment and one that will hopefully lead to a few more Sky appearances from Holloway, who is on the hunt for a new job.
