CLIVE TYLDESLEY is “annoyed and baffled” by ITV’s decision to replace him as their main football commentator.
The veteran caller – who will be replaced by well known Sam Matterface – took to Twitter to share his dismay at the news.
Tyldesley will stay with the broadcaster as their No 2 commentator but will no longer be their main man.
The 65-year-old has been in the roll for 22 years and has been the voice for many of football’s biggest games of the modern era.
Tyldesley called England’s dramatic World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia in 2018 which was watched by the 24.3million people – the largest audience ever for a single game.
Fans online were quick to comment on the decision with many calling for ITV to reverse it.
