Jeff Stelling: Saturday football host to leave show at end of season | football news

Jeff Stilling will leave football at the end of the season on Saturday, saying “it’s time to let someone else try the best job in the world.”

Jeff made his announcement live on Saturday at Football this weekend – a Sky Sports Show that he’s helped set a date for UK football fans for over 25 years as an award-winning presenter.

“I came to a very difficult decision that this would be my last season,” Jeff said.

“It’s my decision – there was no pressure. The sky has been so wonderful to me, as it always has been.

“I am not planning to retire, but it is time to let someone else try the best job in the world.”

The announcement was given a standing ovation by the experts on Soccer Saturday.

Jeff has been synonymous with Saturday afternoon soccer for decades, and he is the exciting soccer fan across the country. Jeff’s unique ability to broadcast, his passion for the game and his sense of humor have made Saturday’s football a must for fans and earned him numerous awards.

“I’ve loved every moment of my 30 years with Sky, but like every Saturday afternoon, it’s finally time to blow the final whistle,” Jeff added. “I am proud to have been part of this winning team for so long and look forward to many other special football moments on Saturday for the rest of this season – and perhaps even another promotion for Hartlepool United.”

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director of Sky Sports, added: “Jeff is a true radio legend and has been instrumental in the growth and popularity of Sky Sports over the past 30 years. Jeff’s pure passion and dedication to the game set him apart. Soccer Saturday has made him a match for millions of fans every afternoon SAT: Goals, laughs, red cards, and missed red cards helped create one of the sport’s most popular television shows with Jeff being the centerpiece.
