Jeff Stelling replicates Gareth Ainsworth’s style on live TV


Football Saturday presenter and TV royalty Jeff Stelling has emulated the unique style of Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth on live TV.

After the Chairboys boss was interviewed jointly with Rotherham United manager Paul Warne on the popular football program ahead of their side’s 0-0 draw at Adams Park, the cameras turned to the very football statistician enjoyed in Sky Sports studios, with an unbuttoned shirt, baring his chest.

The gag was well received by Soccer Saturday panelists Paul Merson, Clinton Morrison, Kris Boyd and Darren Bent, as well as many social media users.

Stelling, who is leaving as the show’s main talking head at the end of the season, said: “Two really good managers, two real smashing guys and this Gareth Ainsworth, he’s a trailblazer, isn’t he ?”

During the hearty laughter that was heard throughout the studio, Stelling continued, “You a lot [the panellists] are so far behind, none of you have the bottle to show people what you’ve got!

“But Gareth and I, yes!”

Stelling has been with Soccer Saturday since 1994.
