Gary Lineker: BT sport

Ex-football player Gary Lineker has suddenly decided after 6 years as a BT sports presenter for the Champions League that he is to step down after the final tomorrow.

Lineker pushed out a tweet with a small statement telling everyone that despite a generous offer to stay on as the presenter of the BT sports presenter he wanted to spend more time with his family and to follow his team Leicester.

He thanked BT for all the support he had whilst behind and in front of the camera in his statement which you can read in full above.

Lineker still has a presenter job with BBC Match of the day and we believe he has no plans to retire from that show, as for who will replace Lineker as the presenter at BT sport is a subject of guesswork at this time, we think though Rio Ferdinand would be the best option.
