Chris Kamara Fearing For His Job On Gillette Soccer Saturday

Chris Kamara Fearing For His Job On Gillette Soccer Saturday

Soccer Saturday favourite Chris Kamara has admitted that he's worried for his job after the recent changes made by Sky Sports.

Matt Le Tissier, Charlie Nicholas, and Phil Thompson have all been removed from the show this year, with the broadcaster cutting costs and aiming to bring in more diversity to the flagship programme.

Kamara is now worried for his own position, and that of friend Jeff Stelling - but is still thankful to Sky for the opportunity they have given to him.

"Me and Jeff, we're not expendable, so we feel our time will come," he told The Sun. "We are getting old as well. These are young bloods coming through.

"And there are people who think we were great a few years ago but probably think we've done our time now and let's bring in the youngsters. But if it all ended tomorrow at Sky, I can honestly say that they have been fantastic to me.

"To be with a company for 22 years, you don't get a manager's job 22 years unless you're Sir Alex or Arsene Wenger."

Kamara 'devastated' by the changes, but admits that he's seen this kind of thing before.

Jeff Stelling Considering Quitting Sky Sports After Soccer Saturday Sackings

"I was absolutely devastated. You just think, 'Crikey'. Being honest, when I started working at Sky I could never see the end of Rodney Marsh, George Best, God bless his soul, Frank McLintock, Alan Moore, Clive Allen."

He added: "They had such good banter and you thought they were going to be there for ever. Then Sky made the change to bring in Charlie, Thomo, Le Tiss, so that acceptance that it had to be them this time around took me by surprise.

"But I'd seen it before. I'm just fortunate I wasn't on the end of it as well. The boys accepted it. We were hoping to all go out together this Christmas. But that's not going to happen now because of Covid. We'll get it sorted next year."

While Kamara may be accepting of his fate, fans are keen for him stay for now.
