Bacary Sagna responds to Chris Kamara's Soccer Saturday slip up

There's no doubt about it, Soccer Saturday just wouldn't be the same without Chris Kamara.

The FA's fears over attendances mean no Saturday 3pm kick-offs in England's four professional leagues can be televised live but Sky Sports' flagship programme perfectly fills the void.

As well as the regular in-studio guests such as Paul Merson, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas, one of the main attractions to the show is Kamara - usually because a hilarious mistake is just around the corner.

Yesterday, the former Swindon and Brentford player was at Selhurst Park to report on Crystal Palace vs Manchester City and produced another golden 'Kammy' moment.

During City's 2-1 victory over the Eagles, Kamara had particular trouble trying to pronounce Bacary Sagna's name.

Only Kammy could mix up the start of Sagna's first and surname to say: "Sacary Bagna" - scroll down to see the video.

Arguably the funniest part, however, is the immediate aftermath - when the penny drops and Kammy realises what he has just said on live television.

There are even a couple of seconds where Kammy doesn't say anything at all and tries to recollect his thoughts but by then, most people were laughing so much that they weren't really paying attention to what he said next.

After something like that, Jeff Stelling was never going to let him off lightly and jokingly said: "Sacary Bagna back in the starting line up today for the first time in seven games."

Well, the man in question caught wind of the magnificent mistake and even produced a brilliant Instagram post in response.

Attached with a video of the gaffe, Sagna wrote: "I know i've been out for quite long... but still #thatmomentwhenyoufeelalone #Itisok #ChrikSamara"


We've got to admit it still doesn't quite match the clip of Kammy not realising someone was sent off during a Portsmouth game but it is certainly another one to add to the showreel.

Don't ever change Kammy!
