Vinnie Jones signs for weekly talkSPORT show
Vinnie Jones is joining Alan Brazil on the talkSPORT breakfast show each Monday morning live from LA.
The new weekly segment will see Vinnie give his views and unique take on the weekend’s games and a look ahead to the big clashes of the week with Alan and co-host Joey Barton.
Listeners and fans can expect to hear the latest Hollywood gossip doing the rounds alongside whatever caught Vinnie’s eye that week from horse-racing to baseball, basketball to boxing.
Now an LA local and more known for his acting prowess, the former Welsh international and captain enjoyed an eventful career as a professional footballer that lasted 15 years. He spent three seasons at Wimbledon, helping the club to FA Cup success over Liverpool in 1988. During his career he also played with Leeds United, Sheffield United, Chelsea, and Queens Park Rangers.
Commenting on his new role, Vinnie said: “I can’t wait to get started with Alan and the team and I certainly won’t be holding back. Expect lots of banter with listeners and the talkSPORT team and my unique take on who’s done what in the football and further afield.”
Alan Brazil, said: “What a way to start the week! Vinnie Jones live from LA! He’s an absolute stalwart of the game and brings with him great insight and energy. Vinnie may have gone toe-to-toe with Arnie, Stallone and Statham but that’s nothing compared to Barton and I every Monday morning. We can’t wait”.
