Fans in stitches as Sky Sports confuse Championship legend for Chile boss Eduardo Berizzo during Blackburn vs Wigan game


FANS have been in hysterics over a Sky Sports blunder confusing a former Championship goalie with Chile manager Eduardo Berizzo.

Berizzo was thought to have been spotted at Blackburn’s Championship fixture against Wigan.

It was believed that he might have made the trip to Ewood Park to watch Chile international striker Ben Brereton Diaz.

However, as the broadcaster’s cameras panned to him, it turned out it was not Berizzo and instead veteran goalkeeper Lee Camp.

The gaffe caught the attention of fans, who took to social media to show off their laughter.

One tweeted: “Sky have just mistaken Lee Camp for the Chile manager 不不不不不不丹領儭.”

Camp had a hailed career in the English league football leagues.

He starred for clubs such as Derby County, Nottingham Forest, Birmingham City, QPR and Rotherham.

The goalkeeper was last on the books of Wrexham, where he failed to make an appearance before leaving last year.

Berizzo, on the other hand, has been the Chile boss since 2022 as he took over the role from Mart穩n Lasarte.

He has also managed at club level, including LaLiga sides Celta Vigo, Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla.

And his playing career was slightly more illustrious than that of Camp, as he played for Marseille, River Plate, Celta and the Argentina national team.
