Graeme Souness returns to TV screens in new job as former Sky Sports pundit.

Graeme Souness, the Liverpool legend, is set to make a return to television screens this summer. He will reportedly be working for ITV at Euro 2024, engaging in on-air debates with the outspoken Simon Jordan, with whom he co-hosts a podcast discussing current football issues. Souness, who also managed several clubs, including Liverpool, Rangers, Blackburn Rovers, Southampton, and Newcastle, continues to write regular columns for the Daily Mail, maintaining his infamous no-nonsense persona.

In the past, he has been known for scathing criticism of players like Paul Pogba, leading to compelling studio clashes with Gary Neville. Souness will be providing analysis alongside a group of well-known colleagues, including Joleon Lescott, Jill Scott, Eli Aluko, Joe Cole, Karen Carney, Ian Wright, and his former Sky co-workers Roy Keane and Gary Neville. He has previously expressed his opposition to the pressure on pundits to be politically correct in the modern game, emphasizing the importance of honesty and authenticity in football commentary.

Souness’s unwavering commitment to his direct style is evident in his declaration that he will never retire from the industry. He believes that remaining honest and real in football commentary is increasingly challenging in the current environment but is a vital aspect of the role.
