Boris Becker expressed his delight at Gary Lineker’s return as the host of the BBC’s Match of the Day (MOTD). The former German tennis star also responded to the veteran presenter’s heartfelt statement regarding the controversy after his reinstatement.

Lineker, who has been the face of the BBC’s Match of the Day for over two decades, was relieved of his duties as the presenter following the controversy surrounding his remarks.

The former English footballer’s comments on the UK government’s asylum policy, in which he drew a comparison to Germany’s policy in 1930, had sparked a heated debate in the political arena.

After the suspension order was lifted, Lineker made the announcement that he would be making a comeback to Match of the Day on Saturday, March 18, on Twitter.

Boris Becker expressed his elation upon receiving the news and promptly took to social media to share the news of the reinstatement of the football legend. He even tagged Linker in his Instagram story.

The Tottenham Hotspur legend received support from his MOTD colleagues Ian Wright and Alan Shearer for refusing to appear on the program.

The two Premier League icons, along with many other pundits, commentators, and BBC staff members, stood in solidarity with the TV presenter.

Becker stood in solidarity with Lineker’s statement, which he had released upon his return.

“Word @garylineker,” Boris Becker wrote.
