Lineker is now set to return to host Match of the Day after the international break on April 1. Alan Shearer was one in every of the pundits who stood in solidarity with Lineker last week.
The Newcastle legend was back within the studio with Lineker, together with Micah Richards, for the BBC’s coverage of City’s clash with Burnley. And Shearer issued a heartfelt message to viewers before any pre-match evaluation regarding last week’s controversy.
“I just must clear up and desired to say how upset we were for the audience that missed out last weekend,” Shearer said. “It was a extremely difficult situation for everybody concerned and, through no fault of their very own, some really great people in TV and radio were put in an unattainable situation and that wasn’t fair, so it’s good to get back to some type of normality and be talking about football again.”
