Souness snapped up for Euro 2020 with no-nonsense Scot heading to terrestrial TV

Graeme Souness will appear as a pundit for ITV Sport during this summer’s European Championships.

The tournament, which was delayed from 2020 due to coronavirus, will be played over the course of a month between June 11-July 11, with home nations England, Scotland and Wales all involved.

Like most international competitions, all the matches will be on terrestrial television, with ITV and the BBC sharing out the fixtures.

And as reported by the Daily Mail, Souness has been snapped up by ITV, and will join the broadcaster for the duration of the tournament.

Souness most regularly appears on Sky Sports’ coverage of the Premier League, and has developed a reputation as a tough-talking, no-nonsense pundit.

He has also worked for Irish channel TV3 and Qatar-based BEIN Sports, and used to be involved in Sky Sports’ Champions League coverage before they lost the rights in 2015.

Both ITV and the BBC have the rights to the Euros finals, while the former will show England’s final two group-stage matches against Scotland on June 18 and Czech Republic on June 22.

It remains to be seen which other pundits will be announced to appear for both ITV and the BBC, but we could be set for a whole host of star names and former players.

Souness was at his straight-talking best on Sky Sports on Saturday as he cast his eye over Liverpool’s 2-1 win against Aston Villa.

Speaking about Jurgen Klopp and the struggles he has faced this season, he said: “As a manager, you look at your dressing room and things are not going well, you see what you’ve got in there, and I think the manager, and it hurts me to say it, you know it hurts me to say it, will be disappointed with certain individuals.

“They’ve not stood up and said look ‘I’m now going to be the main man. I know we’ve got a couple of main men out but I’m going to take his place.

“I’m going to make all of them believe in me and carry us through the difficult times’.

“I don’t think there’s been enough of that this year.”
