Hartlepool United interim manager Keith Curle left an interviewer speechless after hoping for his "sexy Mrs" to finish off his "hat-trick".
The former Manchester City and England defender, 58, saw his League Two side overturn a one-nil deficit to beat Grimsby Town 2-1 on Saturday (October 29). He was in a buoyant mood following the victory – but perhaps a little too buoyant in his post-match interview.
"I woke up this morning and I had three requests: us to win, Man City to win and my Mrs to be in a sexy mood," said Curle. "So I’ve got two out of three so far, I’ve got a two hour drive home and I will be grafting to make sure I get a hat-trick."

His comments caught Hartlepool media officer Alex Chandy well off guard. "Lost for words with the start of tonight’s post-match," he tweeted, before joking: "Let’s hope for 3/3 Gaffer!"
Curle, who's managed several clubs in the lower leagues, has a history of not mincing his words, most notably during his four-year reign as Carlisle United boss from 2014-2018.
When discussing one of his former players in January 2015, Curle said on the Carlisle website: "Alex Marrow is back with us after his sick note period expired. The situation with him is that Alex wants to leave the football club. I also want Alex to leave the football club.

“We’re going through a process of finding the best way for him to leave the club which is financially beneficial to both parties. Fortunately for Alex, while he is here, and doesn’t want to be here, he still gets paid. Unfortunately for me while Alex is here, and doesn’t want to be here, I’ve still got to pay him."
Amid a poor run of form the following month, the recovered addict again told their in-house media team: "The way I feel at the moment is like seeing my ex-partner out with another bloke. It’s absolutely killing me. It’s days like this when I wish I drank. Sparkling water and lime cordial aren’t going to get me to sleep."
In a bid to fire up his struggling Carlisle side as they fought off relegation from the football league, Curle then brutally said in April of that year: "We’ve got to play people with the male genitalia to go out and play.
"But I don’t think I can do that as I’d only start with five or six players because I don’t think there are players there that have got the male genitalia. They are players who don’t deserve to be professionals. They are weak."
