The guys at talkSPORT took a surprise dig at Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel for not wearing a suit for the FA Cup final.

The Chelsea manager attended the FA Cup final in his trademark Chelsea tracksuit, while Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers wore a suit for the final.

Some pundits didn’t seem too pleased with Tuchel’s outfit and some said it was a disrespect to the FA Cup.

Check out the comments by Ian Wright and Andy Cole.

Ian Wright: “I don’t like to see people turning up to the FA Cup in tracksuits. It’s not what this game is about, we saw all the lead-up, the suits is what it is about. You’ve got to wear suits to the final, this is the day!”

Andy Cole: “I’m not having a lack of awareness. If he’s watched an FA Cup, which no doubt he has, come on. I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt – but it’s a lack of respect.”

However, fans didn’t seem to agree with the comment made by the pundits and pointed to last season’s final where Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta were both dressed in casual outfit.
