Montpellier have apologised for a typo in their club name on all official shirts this season, including their players'.

The Ligue 1 side needed to be alerted to the mistake by their own fans, who complained after buying the jersey only to discover the club's badge read 'Montpelier' rather than 'Montpellier'.

Supporters called for their money back on purchased shirts, and the club have now issued a formal apology and offered supporters the chance to exchange their faulty products.
