Former Bristol City and Bristol Rovers defender Keith Curle has become a viral sensation after an hilarious post-match interview. Curle is interim manager of League Two outfit Hartlepool United and caught the interviewer off guard with his response.

Curle had just overseen a 2-1 win for Hartlepool over Grimsby Town which got them off the bottom spot. It has also put them within touching distance of Crawley Town, Gillingham, Harrogate and Rochdale who are close to the relegation back door.

The video published on Twitter which has been watched more than 1.7 million times sees Hartlepool’s Media Officer Alex Chandy ask Curle: “Summarise how you’re feeling?”. It had been shared on websites such as SPORTbible.

Curle responded with: “I woke up this morning, I had three requests; us to win, Man City to win and me missus to be in a sexy mood. “I’ve got two out of three so far, so I’ve got a two-hour drive home where I will be grafting to make sure I get a hat trick.”

In response to Curle’s answer, Chandy responded: “I don’t even know what to say now. It’s probably one of the best interviews I have had.”

An update was then published on Hartlepool’s social media in their pre-match conference on Thursday. It was since deleted when asked if he had completed the ‘hat-trick’. Curle responded: “Getting on to the sexy time. I thought about the answer and a gentleman never tells.”

Curle was born in Bristol and began his playing career in 1981 with Bristol Rovers, scoring on his debut against Chester, before leaving in 1983 for Torquay United.

He would later return to Bristol after just one season at Plainmoor, crossing the divide to the red side with Bristol City. His time with the Robins with longer, spending three seasons at Ashton Gate, making 121 appearances, scoring one goal.

He later went on to play for Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers before starting his 20-year management career with Mansfield Town in 2002.”
