My brand new show, simply and perfectly titled 'The Football Show' launches at 9pm on Thursday the 30th on Sky Sports!
Across 6 one-hour specials my good friend Jonny Nelson and I travel the globe on a journey to discover the passions that drive 24 of the world's most talented football players.
We discover why Brazil is so obsessed with the beautiful game. Where Buenos Aires' passion for football was born and how the history of the game effects the day to day lifestyle of various cultures...including life in Manchester!
It's a varied and colourful show that will show you players like you've never seen before. You'll see me argue with Barcelona's Rafinha Alcantara in his own home as he insists that I sing whilst he plays the guitar. You'll watch me question Troy Deeney about his time in prison whilst he gets a tattoo, Jonny attempts futvôlei with the pro's the beaches of Rio and I am brought to tears in Rome when I discover how football gives one very special team a reason to survive.
We discover some amazing places that encapsulate the true meaning of 'the Beautiful Game' and I loved every moment of making this series. Each show is a journey of discovery and I'm excited about sharing that journey with you.
Every Thursday on SKY Sports (402) @ 9pm for the next six weeks.
THE FOOTBALL SHOW.
