Travis Kelce’s coach speaks out after fans called player out for ‘inappropriate behaviour’ towards him

Travis Kelce’s coach speaks out after fans called player out for ‘inappropriate behaviour’ towards him

It looked like a heated moment but nobody knows what was said

Andy Reid, the Kansas City Chiefs coach, has spoken out after an incident with Travis Kelce in the middle of the Super Bowl.

Reid's Chiefs ended up victorious at the end of the day, but there was a hairy moment when the San Francisco 49ers were the first to score and went 10 up.

When Isiah Pacheco fumbled the ball, Kelce appeared to let his emotions boil over and he ran over to the coach and started yelling at him.

Kelce appeared to knock into Andy Reid, which drew a lot of criticism from those watching as they though it was 'not a good look' for the Super Bowl's golden boy.

Others thought it was 'disrespectful', while some suggested that Kelce 'should be benched for the rest of the half at minimum'.

That didn't happen and Reid has now spoken out about what happened between him and Kelce.

During a post-match interview with CBS the coach laughed the incident off and joked that the rough and tumble with his players 'keeps me young'.

He said balance was 'not so good' and joked that Kelce 'tested that hip out', saying: "He caught me off-balance - normally I get him a little bit but I didn't have any feet under me."

Reid played down any notion that they might actually have fallen out, explaining: "He loves to play the game and he loves to help his team win, it's not a selfish thing.

"As much as he bumps into me, I get after him. We understand that. He just caught me off balance."

If there ever was a hatchet then it seems to have been buried as both men were able to bask in the magnanimous glow of victory.

Kelce said: "Ah, you guys saw that? I'm a keep that between us unless my mic'd up tells the world.

"I was just telling him how much I love him."

The Chiefs player went on to say Reid was 'the greatest coach this game has ever seen' and called him 'one of the best leaders of men I've ever seen in my life'.

Kelce said he owed his whole career to the Chiefs coach and that he loved him, and told reporters that Reid had helped him channel his emotions and passions while playing.

While plenty of Super Bowl fans were there for the love of the game, others were fixated on the romance between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift.

However, some people have taken things a little bit too far, donned the tinfoil hat and thought the result was decided before the game thanks to a new conspiracy theory.
