Sheff Utd captain Billy Sharp fires brutal dig at Ryan Reynolds’ Wrexham after players clash in tunnel after FA Cup tie | The SunFebruary 8, 2023
SHEFFIELD UNITED captain Billy Sharp fired a brutal dig at Ryan Reynolds’ Wrexham after dumping them out of the FA Cup.
The duo played out a thrilling fourth-round replay at Bramall Lane last night, with the hosts scoring twice in injury time for a 3-1 win.
But tempers flared after the final whistle as Sharp clashed with several Wrexham players in the tunnel.
The Blades striker, 37, allegedly said “shove that on your documentary” in a reference to Wrexham’s show on Disney+.
And afterwards Sharp blasted the Welsh side for being “disrespectful” in a fiery post-match interview.
Aiming a dig at Hollywood owners Reynolds and McElhenney, Sharp said: “It was a great FA Cup tie, over two games, they played excellent.

“I think they have been disrespectful though, a few things before the game, thinking they was already through. I’m glad we beat them.
“They are doing well in their league, we are doing well in ours. I wasn’t very happy with a few of their players tonight, but I’ll say now, we’ve got one over them.
“Good luck to them for promotion and hopefully we’ve put that one to bed. A few of their players I wasn’t happy with. I was a little bit frustrated there, I probably should have put the game to bed before I did.
“I wasn’t happy with the way they have been as a club. Before the game they were eyeing up Spurs when they’ve not even beat us.

“We are an honest set of lads and we want to go as far as we can in this competition. If we get beat in the next round so be it, we’ll give it a right go.
“I think they just thought we were going to roll over when they got back in it, and I think the ref was helping them all night.
“I don’t think he gave me one foul all night but it’s one of those things, I probably lost my head a bit. But I’ve got a smile on my face because we’ve got through to the next round of the cup.”
Wrexham fired back at Sharp’s comments afterwards, with captain Ben Tozer saying: “I feel like a bit of a dampener has been put on the game with the way they’ve acted in the tunnel.
“They showed a real lack of humility. But that’s the way they want to be and I feel like if we won that game we would have shown a lot more humility and respect.
“They should show more respect to us. They were telling us to ‘shove it on the documentary’.
“I feel like he [Sharp] has fabricated stuff in his head to make that acceptable for himself if I’m honest.
I said to him face-to-face ‘show a bit more humility’. We’ve congratulated them on the win, we haven’t sulked, we’ve walked down the tunnel as normal and it’s just a shame that’s the way it’s ended.
“You had lads like Oli McBurnie saying stuff in the press; I don’t think any of our lads said anything disrespectful. We certainly approached the game properly.
“If that’s the way they want to be that’s the way they want to be.”
Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson added: “I’m a bit disappointed with Billy to be honest with you, some of the things he was shouting down the tunnel at the end.
“Well done Bill, you’re a fantastic player but I thought he was disrespectful after the game.

“I think the way the players celebrated and the crowd and staff was just a mark of how tough we made it for them and they were relieved to get through.
“The message to Billy is: You’re better than that, you really are. My players are humble people and a great credit to the football club.”
