Jeff Stelling Confirms He Could Quit Soccer Saturday After Sky Sackings

Jeff Stelling Confirms He Could Quit Soccer Saturday After Sky Sackings

Jeff Stelling has confirmed he is considering leaving Soccer Saturday after Sky Sports sacked close friends Matt Le Tissier, Charlie Nicholas and Phil Thompson.

It was revealed earlier this week that Sky had sacked the trio of pundits with less than one year left on their contracts.

Stelling, who has presented the show for 25 years, took to Twitter to address fans and he did not commit his long term future to the show.

He begun: "Thanks for all the messages of support - and even for most of those who have a different view, as I believe in free speech.

"So far no discussions have taken place, no decisions made.

"Only I know what I am thinking but it is important to listen to all arguments. Thanks again."

Stelling also told fans on Thursday that if they think he is "complicit" about the sackings, then they have "no idea" about him.
