image for Match Of The Day Gary Lineker To Enter Politics
Listen to me. I know best.

In a week which saw US movie star, Angelina Jolie, refuse to rule out a possible future move into politics, Match Of The Day host, Gary Lineker, also appears to be taking a similar route.

Lineker, 58, has taken US President Donald Trump as his example, and provided thousands of his followers - who know absolutely nothing about politics - with sound, reliable and insightful political advice about Brexit.

The former Leicester City, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur hero, who also advertises crisps, is a firm believer in Britain staying within the EU, and, as one who experienced football on the continent whilst he was playing for Barcelona, who would know better than him?

As MOTD host, Lineker has grown into the role, looking calm and comfortable on viewers' screens, and providing intelligent opinion, and informed explanations about happenings on the pitch. It's with the same kind of confidence he has now put his head above the political parapet on Twitter, where he, daily, implores his followers to get behind a 'second vote' over Brexit, reasoning that the initial 'leave' vote must have been wrong, because he didn't agree with the result.

Lineker has previously failed in attempts to get both England's 1990 World Cup semi-final match with Germany, and their recent World Cup semi-final loss to Croatia replayed, because he didn't like those results either.

One Twitter contributor, responding to Lineker's spouting, wrote:

"Stick to football, Gary. Or crisps. Something you're good at."
