Geoff Shreeves still out of work after Sky Sports exit that left ‘massive void’

Geoff Shreeves has revealed he's still out of work after leaving Sky Sports at the end of last season.

Shreeves, who was at Sky Sports for more than three decades, was one of a number of familiar faces to leave the channel. And the reporter hasn't landed another role since his exit, meaning he'll be watching Sky's Super Sunday from the comfort of his own home.

"It’s a massive change for me and it’s left a massive void in my life," Shreeves told the Daily Mail. "But I am also hoping this is temporary. I correct people who keep saying: 'Congratulations on your retirement' or 'I am sorry you got sacked' as neither are true.

"I would hope to be back sooner rather or later reporting or on the touchline for someone. Make no bones about it, I am looking to work. And of course I will be watching on Sunday."

Alongside Shreeves, Sky lost Martin Tyler, Graeme Souness, and Jeff Stelling – who had performed a U-turn of his own, as he was originally meant to leave the summer beforehand.

Sky Sports' director of football Gary Hughes thanked the reporter for his contributions when he left in June, and said in a statement: "Geoff has been an integral part of the Sky Sports football team and the best tunnel reporter in the business, interviewing the biggest names at the biggest games for over 30 years.

Shreeves also revealed that he cannot currently share his thoughts on his departure from the broadcaster, but that he will be able to do so in 18 months' time.

Sky Sports' new look line-up took shape over the weekend as the Premier League kicked off for the 2023/24 season.
