The 'Montpelier' badge might one day become a collectors' item after a printing error affected a batch of the Ligue 1 club's jerseys

Montpellier were forced to make an apology after they were caught out in a spelling mistake - of their own name! 

The Ligue 1 club had prepared their new 2017-18 shirts ready for sale, but something looked wrong from the outset.

And they will now have to recall the offending items of clothing after spelling the club's name on the shield incorrectly. 

'Montpelier' was emblazoned on the replicas, with the club forced to say sorry to those fans affected by the error.

"MHSC have been the victim of a badge error on the series of shirts that are on sale," their statement read. 

"The badges were made in two batches, one of which has a mistake.

"Our sincerest apologies to fans."

Some fans have already asked for refunds after failing to notice the mistake upon purchase; but they may be better off holding on to their faulty shirts.

With a little patience, those in possession of a Montpelier jersey could soon be laughing all the way to the bank!
