Peter Crouch To Star On New Amazon Prime Football Show 'Back Of The Net'

Peter Crouch To Star On New Amazon Prime Football Show 'Back Of The Net'

Next season Amazon Prime will show live Premier League football for the first time and as well as two gameweeks the streaming service will also show a weekly football programme, with Peter Crouch as one of two regular guests.

Peter Crouch is the kind of footballer that everyone loves. From his demeanour on the pitch, to his podcast, everyone likes the Burnley striker and now we're set to see even more of him.

On Thursday Amazon Prime Video revealed that next season the streaming service will show a weekly football entertainment programme called 'Back of the Net' in which Crouch will be a regular guest, along with John Bishop, with Gabby Logan presenting.

Speaking about his new gig the 38-year-old said, "I'm really excited to start this show with Gabby and John and I'm hoping it's going to be a smooth transition from bench to sofa."

The programme will be showed every Tuesday following Premier League games and will be a 'studio entertainment show' about the league.

New presenter Logan said, "I am beyond thrilled to become part of the Back of the Net team sitting alongside my old mate John Bishop and the wittiest footballer in the land, Peter Crouch. Football is about passion, skill and rivalries but ultimately it's about people and their stories and there's so much fun to be had around the beautiful game every week in the Premier League."

Comedian and Liverpool fan Bishop promising an unbiased opinion, although we aren't too convinced, with the scouser adding, "Each week, I guarantee to give an extremely impartial, straight laced view of the recent champions of Europe."

Amazon Prime have two rounds of live Premier League matches from last season after buying the rights to some games.

Crouch is always entertaining.

On top of live games and 'Back of the Net,' which better have Alan Partridge commentating at some point, there will also be a weekly highlights show.

We certainly can't wait to see Crouch in action.
