Nonetheless he will constantly stand up for those who are voiceless. He adopted two refugees he is still in touch with and working to assist since he is enthusiastic about supporting refugee charities. To defend those whose only option is to flee a nation with just the clothing on their backs means a lot to him. He has been so firm because of this. Will he watch Match of the Day again? He enjoys watching Match of the Day. Yet he never gives up on it. In support of Lineker former Tory chancellor George Osborne criticized some of his party's rhetoric over immigration policy.

On Channel 4's The Andrew Neil Show he said: "Personally I think some of the language used on immigration by some Conservatives not all is unacceptable. I feel a lot of sympathy for Tim Davie the director-general who is struggling to maintain the BBC's impartiality during this polarised time. Everything ended up being a complete mess. Tim Patten director-general of the BBC issued an apology on Saturday for the interference with the network's sports coverage. I'm extremely sorry for the disturbance today" he stated in a statement to BBC News in Washington DC. I'm sorry that audiences were impacted and missed the programming it's been a challenging day.

The director-general stated that while "everyone wants to address the matter gently" he would not discuss the negotiations. "Gary Lineker is a great broadcaster. He continued without disputing that he was the finest in the field. To be clear for me success means that Gary returns to the air and that we provide the audiences with the elite sports coverage that as I said I'm sorry we couldn't do today.

Commentator Alistair Bruce-Ball began Radio 5 Live's broadcast of today's two Premier League games with the following statement: "I want to reaffirm what we stated before our football coverage yesterday. I'm sure you'll agree that BBC Sport and everyone in the department are going through a difficult moment right now. We hope that everything is settled as quickly as possible.
