Chris Kamara: a hero, a legend, a comedian!
For those who do not know who Chris Kamara is, I'll try and give you a brief background. He's a former footballer who played for Portsmouth, Swindon Town, Brentford, Stoke, Leeds, Luton, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough and Bradford City between 1975-1995. Since retiring he had short stints as manager of Bradford City and Stoke City.
However, that's been the boring part of his career. Nowadays, and for quite some time, he's been working for Sky Sports on several programs. Firstly he hosts a program called "Goals on Sunday" which shows all the English goals of the previous day. Secondly, he appears on the infamous Sky Sports show "Gilette Soccer Saturday". This program updates viewers on the progress of all league games in all divisions taking place in England on Saturday between 3 and 5pm.
The host Jeff Stelling is known for his good humor and banter alongside the selected 4 pundits who provide him with updates on specific games, as well as others who are actually at the stadium giving Jeff their updates.
And this is where Chris Kamara comes in with some legendary moments that are, if you're a proper football fan, among the funniest you can ever find. Below are his best moments. Chris Kamara, you've got a small fan club in Beirut, can someone please tell him that?
