Gary Neville explains the reason behind THAT Torres commentary... sort of

Sore throat, innit.

IT’S DESTINED TO go down alongside this and this as one of the all-time great moments of football commentary, but Gary Neville is insisting that there’s a rather simple explanation behind his Fernando Torres “goalgasm” last night.

You see, he had a sore throat. That’s what prompted the delirious moan of “ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh”.

To be honest, that explanation is about as believable as John Terry’s “Sanchez checked his run so I shifted my weight onto my back foot and jerked my knee into his back as a reflex” line.

But in the Neviller’s defence, he’s sticking to his story and even fleshed it out a bit this morning.

As it happened: Barcelona v Chelsea, Champions League semi-final

Guardiola rues the one that got away… and refuses to point finger at Messi
