Soccer Saturday is hardly well renowned for being a hub of footballing intelligence, sometimes it's what makes the show fun. It doesn't take itself too seriously and the banter between Jeff Stelling and the panel is usually pretty harmless.

But sometimes something so obviously untrue is said on the show that it needs to be called out for what it is - step forward Phil Thompson, who made the audacious claim that Manchester United winger Alexis Sanchez is currently earning a staggering £900,000 a week.

Twitter reacted of course, calling out the Liverpool legend for the ludicrous claim.

Sanchez is reportedly on around £390,000 a week, so whilst that may be a fair amount for United to be paying the Chilean, it's still some way off what Thompson claimed.
