BILLY SHARP has lifted the lid even further on his FA Cup bust-up with Wrexham last season on Ben Foster's podcast.

The former Sheffield United striker became public enemy number one for Wrexham fans for comments he made after an FA Cup match earlier this year.

Ahead of a replay at Bramall Lane, which the Blades went on to win 3-1, Sharp accused Wrexham of being 'disrespectful'.

He also had words with Wrexham’s players and staff in the tunnel following the final whistle.

The bust-up was shown in season two of the Welcome to Wrexham documentary, with Wrexham AFC chairman Ryan Reynolds claiming the Reds got 'under' Sharp's skin.

But just a few weeks ago, in a bizarre twist, Sharp refused to rule out any transfer to Wrexham should it ever arise in future.

The 37-year-old has just recently been let go by Major League Soccer outfit Los Angeles Galaxy, where he scored six goals in 12 appearances, and is therefore on the lookout for a new club.

Now, on former Wrexham goalkeeper Ben Foster's podcast 'Fozcast', the striker has revealed more about the infamous bust-up.


Addressing the incident on 'Fozcast', Sharp said: "I take a lot, I give a lot, it's part of the game. Without the fans, football is nothing.

"Wrexham fans were in full noise that day, they were brilliant, they came to Bramall Lane and were loud, got right behind their team. It was a proper FA Cup tie over two legs.

"I'm a winner and I wanted to win, 'cause I could see how much Wrexham players, fans, everything, wanted to win and I didn't want that happening on our patch."

He added: "I'd done a little crying gesture to the Wrexham fans, which, I could have done a lot worse.

"I've got nothing against any of the Wrexham players, they're doing well this season."

Talking about what happened in the tunnel after the match, Sharp added: "There were loads of cameras for the documentary. So I’m trying to go straight on and up the stairs, it gets tighter.

"The Wrexham players think ‘what’s he doing, he should be going left’. I get that. This camera guy shoots out, probably didn’t think I was coming because he thought I was going left as well. I nearly fall over him and push him out the way. The Wrexham lads kicked off a little bit.”
