He continued, “Personally, I realized that football management wasn’t suitable for me anymore. My temperament and personality weren’t compatible with it.

And then I was given the opportunity to do this and it’s been magnificent. It’s just been the most fantastic time for me, because I love football, I care about football and I worry about it going forward.

But in Sky’s hands, it’s in good hands, safe hands, and I think over the years we’ve created a Premier League with great detail and I think we look after football very well.

But for me personally, I’ve got the buzz of live football coming to some fantastic games and some fantastic stadiums and some great events.

I think I owe 100 apologies to people, but we haven’t got time for that.

I think people at home obviously don’t always agree with us, but it’s been great guys it really has.

And it’s great right now to be amongst friends and nothing goes on forever, but I’ve got a lot of things coming up, I’m involved in my DEBRA charity and on the 27th of this month I’ll announce the challenge I’m getting involved in.

But it’s been great so thank you to everyone.

Sky Sports director of football Gary Hughes paid tribute to Souness as he said: ‘We will miss Graeme’s no-nonsense approach in the studio – matched only by his playing style.

Let’s take a look back at some of Souness’ highlights

The Graeme Souness – Paul Pogba Entanglement

Graeme Souness appeared to have a persistent issue with Pogba, often engaging in heated debates with Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville about the World Cup winner. However, the most unexpected moment came when he had a discussion with the amiable Micah Richards.

The Graeme Souness – Paul Pogba Entanglement

The incident occurred while discussing the past remarks made by Pogba’s former agent, Mino Raiola, regarding the player’s future at Man Utd, which ultimately resulted in Pogba’s departure.

However, during the conversation, both parties spoke over each other and gestured vehemently while attempting to defend their points, with Souness even turning his back at one point.

Jack Grealish’s Price Tag
He’s a good player, not a great player,” Souness has said of Man City’s £100million man Jack Grealish.

In Graeme Souness’ opinion, the former Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish, has yet to prove himself for Pep Guardiola’s team, and he has made that clear during his punditry. Even Grealish has not been exempt from his criticism.

Grealish hit back at those comments while away on England duty by insisting: “I don’t know what his problem is, he always criticises me.

Amusingly, Souness retorted on talkSPORT: “I’d love a night out with him. I’m not sure I could stay with him but I think I would enjoy a night out with him.

Grealish has seemingly taken him up on his offer. He wrote on social media, “🤣🤣 let’s do it!! As long as I can bring Pogba as a +1.
