Mamadou Sakho may not have featured during Liverpool’s 3-0 FA Cup win over Exeter City last night but the centre-back’s young daughter Aida certainly made an impact.

BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey was speaking with the Grecians’ manager Paul Tisdale alongside pundits Steve McManaman and David James at pitchside after the game when they were suddenly interrupted by the toddler.

The presenting team were understandably taken aback but McManaman, who spent 11 years at Anfield during his playing career, comforted the bemused-looking Aida, who didn’t quite seem to understand what she had just done.

“We've been gatecrashed here by someone's daughter,” said Humphrey before instructing his cameraman pan around and reveal Sakho, who was busy filming the gaffe on his mobile phone and struggling to contain himself.

The French international later tweeted a tongue-in-cheek apology to BT Sport, writing: “Aïda what are you doing here!!! lol Sorry @btsportfootball”.

Sakho missed out on Wednesday night’s third round replay, despite impressing in the narrow 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend, as manager Jurgen Klopp opted to field a young and inexperienced side.

Liverpool took the lead through Joe Allen, one of the few senior figures to start the game, with goals from Sheyi Ojo and Joao Carlos Teixeira rounding off the win.

Klopp’s side progressed to the FA Cup fourth round, in which they will entertain West Ham United.
