Jeff Stelling to remain at Soccer Saturday after change of mind

Jeff Stelling is set to stay on as host of Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday after a dramatic u-turn. 

Stelling announced his decision to step down from the programme in October of last year, after 30 years at Sky.

However, according to Sky Sports, after discussions with the company, he has decided to stay on as host of the award-winning show for at least the 2022/23 season.

Speaking about his decision, 67-year-old Stelling said as the end drew closer he realised he couldn't walk away;

"Sky Sports is my home, and the Soccer Saturday team are a big part of my life.

"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 meanwhile said they're extremely excited with the news;

"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."
