The Match of the Day commentators have pulled out of the show amid a storm surrounding Gary Lineker. Fans have expressed their disappointment, saying ‘there’s no point watching now’.
The BBC’s flagship football show has been thrown into turmoil after Lineker, the show’s presenter, was accused of making a ‘racist’ comment about a player. Lineker has since apologised for the comment, but the damage has been done and the show’s commentators have decided to pull out.
The commentators, who are usually the voices of the show, have decided to take a stand against Lineker’s comments and have decided to withdraw their services. This has left the show without its usual voices and has left fans feeling disappointed.
Many fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment at the commentators’ decision. One fan said: ‘There’s no point watching now.’ Another said: ‘It’s a shame that the commentators have decided to pull out. It’s a real shame for the show.’
The BBC has yet to comment on the situation, but it is likely that they will be looking for a replacement for the commentators. It is unclear who will take their place, but it is likely that the BBC will be looking for someone who can provide the same level of insight and analysis that the commentators have provided in the past.
The situation has also raised questions about Lineker’s future on the show. Lineker has been the face of Match of the Day for many years and it is unclear whether he will remain in his role. The BBC has yet to comment on the situation, but it is likely that they will be looking for a replacement for Lineker if he decides to step down.
The situation has left many fans feeling disappointed and frustrated. It is a shame that the commentators have decided to pull out, as they have been a key part of the show for many years. It remains to be seen how the BBC will handle the situation, but it is clear that the show will not be the same without the commentators.
