Slaven Bilic made his punditry debut for ITV Sport during Friday night’s opening Euro 2016 match between France and Romania - but he’ll be lucky if he’s invited back to the 2018 World Cup finals at this rate.
Analysing the action at half-time, the West Ham boss appeared to swear while discussing a clear chance Romania missed early in the opening 45 minutes.
ITV are reportedly adamant that Bilic “stumbled over his words and did not use any inappropriate language” - per the Telegraph - but you can judge for yourself whether or not he dropped the F-bomb by watching the video further down this page.

Mark Pougatch, presenting for ITV, simply laughed after Bilic’s supposed live TV gaffe - indicating that he didn’t see anything wrong with the manager’s comments.
However, Emmanuel Petit gave a knowing nod to Pougatch, suggesting he might have thought the same as many people on Twitter.

Bilic cut a delighted figure at the final whistle after Dimitri Payet, West Ham’s star this season, banged in the winning goal for Les Bleus.
