Jeff Stelling has announced that he will stay on at Sky Sports beyond the end of the season and continue to present his popular Soccer Saturday show. The 67-year-old’s U-turn comes after he revealed last October that he would be calling time on his career with the satellite sports channel.

“Sky Sports is my home, and the Soccer Saturday team are a big part of my life,” Stelling said on Monday. “As the end of the season approached, and I was preparing to say goodbye, I realised that I was not ready to blow the final whistle and leave the best job in the world.

“I am thrilled to be staying, and excited about moving the show forward and creating more special Saturday afternoons on Sky Sports.”

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director of Sky Sports added: “Football fans everywhere will be delighted that Jeff will continue to host Soccer Saturday. He is a massive part of Saturday afternoon life and everyone at Sky Sports shares the joy this news will bring.

“We just can’t get enough of Jeff, and can’t wait to bring more of his broadcasting magic to our viewers.”
