I will present Match Of The Day in pants if Leicester win EPL – Lineker

I will present Match Of The Day in pants if Leicester win EPL – Lineker

Gary Lineker has confirmed he will present Match Of The Day in his underpants in August, if Leicester City are crowned Premier League champions.

Lineker who once played for the Foxes, had spearheaded a campaign to save the club after it plunged into administration in 2002 and was not too pleased when Claudio Ranieri was named manager at the start of this season.

Following Leicester’s 2-1 win over Chelsea in December, Lineker tweeted thathe will present the BBC flagship highlights programme in his undies, if they go on to win the league.

“I stupidly said I would present the show in my pants – but at that stage I absolutely categorically knew that they weren’t going to win the league,” he said.

“Now the nation is in trouble – I’m hoping to get a really good (sponsorship) deal! I’m hoping to get some very large pants that will go over my head to stop me blushing.

“At the start of the season they were 5,000-1 for the title, now I think it’s about 7-4.”

Lineker says that seeing Leicester win the title would be the realisation of a lifelong dream.

He continued: “I was just pleased that they managed to keep the whole squad together for the January window. I’m not worried about any danger in the summer – if they win the league that’ll do me!

“They could cease to exist and it wouldn’t matter. It’s just magical what’s happened – but we’re trying not to get ahead of ourselves.

“It was my first thought when I got the job with BT Sport last summer that I can follow Leicester in the Champions League!

“They are in a great shape to get a Champions League spot now, there is a massive (12-point) difference between them and (Manchester United in) fifth-place.

“A couple of serious injuries and things can change, when you haven’t got the depth of other teams. But the fact Leicester are not in any other competitions will limit the possibilities of bad luck in that sense.

“It would be a great adventure for Leicester to be in the Champions League.

“They are actually quite well equipped to play European football because of the nature of the counter-attacking style Leicester play and the pace they play on the break, but we are probably getting ahead of ourselves here…”
