BT SPORT were caught out after they used a FAKE Manchester United crest for the coverage of their Champions League clash against Atalanta on Wednesday night.

But some eagle-eyed football fans spotted a rather nuance mishap from broadcasters BT during their updates of the game.
Instead of using the official Man Utd crest, the BT Sport Football app actually used an emblem from Design Crowd’s unofficial Manchester United Logo Contest in 2013.
The fake badge looks incredibly similar to the real club logo but with some subtle changes, namely the shape of the middle.
After creating the unofficial crest eight years ago, the designer said: “The Manchester United logo is one of soccer’s most recognized logos, therefore, I tried to keep most components similar.
“Perhaps fans do not really want a totally new logo, so instead, I have just modified and created an ‘upgraded’ one.”
Bizarrely, this is not the first time this has happened to Man Utd.
Back in 2016, the club used another logo from the unofficial contest to promote a Deadpool film.
Meanwhile, on the pitch it was a dramatic night at Old Trafford for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side.
Under pressure following a poor run in the Premier League, the Red Devils went into half-time trailing 2-0 as some of the crowd booed them off at the break.
But second half goals from Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire got them back into the contest.
And Ronaldo produced another European moment late on as he headed in the 85th minute winner to hand Solskjaer a second win from three Champions League games so far this season.
Next up for United is a home game against fierce rivals Liverpool on Sunday.
