The footballing world has been sent reeling with the news that Claude Callegari is to step away from his duties from Arsenal Fan TV with immediate effect. After Arsenal's narrow win over Huddersfield, Arsenal Fan TV creator Robbie Lyle was talking to regular contributor Callegari and the Arsenal legend dropped the bombshell that he is set to retire after five years with the Youtube channel.
The 55-year-old made the announcement outside Huddersfield's Kirklees stadium to a shocked Lyle, who must surely be worried about the future of the channel in the wake of Callegari's decision:
I'm not sure whether I'll be back next year. Thanks for everything, it's been a good five years, but maybe it's time for me to... as I've always said 'it's time to go'.
I might come on once or twice during the season but I think maybe I need to take a back step and let other people come on a bit more.
The decision has sent ripples through the footballing world, with many unsure who would the best replacement for the passionate Londoner, with unconfirmed reports that Lyle may try to poach Andy Tate from Manchester United fan channel Full Time Devils:
It is understood that Full Time Devils are unwilling to sell Tate, but there have been rumours that there is a £100 release clause in outspoken Mancunian's contract.
