I interviewed Clive a few weeks ago and he was courteous, passionate and looking forward to the future.
I can’t believe he has been replaced. I thought he may have been winding down but to hear that he is not makes them decision more baffling.
This is an open letter to Clive: the voice of the Champions League for me growing up.
I am deeply shocked and upset by your news today. I honestly thought when the news came out that you were stepping back voluntarily. From Barcelona to Istanbul you’ve been the voice of European football in my lifetime.
Your nuggets of advice on Instagram, on YouTube and on our recent interview have helped me enormously.
I wish you every success and I repeat what I said on our interview you are the voice of football for me. You are the voice of the champions league for me and if I can help in any way please let me know.
You are a living legend of broadcasting and football in this country.
Stay strong, stay safe and keep commentating as the game would be far worse off without you.
