Barcelona, Man City or Liverpool – Lineker explains season ticket preference

The Match of the Day host is no stranger to showing support for his former sides on Twitter – Leicester, Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham.

And Lineker was recently asked – aside from Leicester, the club he made the most appearances for – which club would he most like to have a season ticket for.

“Here? Manchester City. I switch between them and Liverpool , but I love the way Pep Guardiola has evolved the game.

“I love Jurgen Klopp's personality, he's a star, his energy, it's fantastic.

“But the football is simple, you know what you are going to get.

“What City do — it's just so clever. You'll see a different formation, a different way, every visit. They take the game on.
