Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas all let go by Sky Sports

Soccer Saturday will look very different this season

Sky Sports have relieved Charlie Nicholas, Matt Le Tissier and Phil Thompson from their duties ahead of the 20/21 season.

The trio have appeared on Gillette Soccer Saturday, the football show hosted by Jeff Stelling, for years and have racked up over 50 years of service between the three of them.

They were all understood to be very popular members of the team, but Sky let them go on Tuesday as the broadcaster look to make cost-cutting redundancies.


It is not yet known who will replace them on Soccer Saturday, but Paul Merson will remain on the show.
