In October 2023, fans were left in stiches after the Dorking Wanderers boss went viral following an epic post-match meltdown.

Dorking lost 2-0 to seventh-tier minnows Horsham in the FA Cup’s fourth qualifying round following goals by Daniel Ajakaiye and Shamir Fenelon.

And White didn’t hold back when criticising his players.

He told DWTV: “At the end of the day, they [Horsham] fully deserve to be in the draw and I really hope they get something amazing and life-changing.

“So my f*****g s**t players can learn a f*****g lesson because they were so poor.

“And I will tell you one thing: I will always put my hand up, it’s not about availability, injuries, who was returning, who wasn’t – it wasn’t about that at all.

“It was about the fact that that team let the fans down 100 per cent, wholeheartedly.

“Sometimes I get the management team that take the blame part, part blame, some blame, whatever…

“Today was wholeheartedly a bunch of players that were absolutely s**t.”

And football fans were left in absolute stitches with what some consider the “best post-match interview of all time”.

One supporter wrote: “This is the best post-match manager reaction I’ve ever seen.”

Another commented: “Love your honesty. Managers too often take the can for players’ poor performances.”

Meanwhile, a third said: ”Need more like Marc. Says it like it is, honest and doesn’t care if he offends. Heart well and truly on sleeve.”
