Gary Lineker has lept to the defence of former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas following a Tweet from Paddy Power.
The bookmaker are known for their outspoken opinion and took to Twitter to try and criticise Jenas for his punditry work.
They used a photo of Richard Branson along with a quote which insinuates that Jenas does not know what he is doing as a football pundit and is blagging the role.
Lineker, who has worked alongside Jenas on both BBC and BT Sport broadcasts rubbished the Tweet whilst praising his colleague.
Anyone who has listened to Jenas will know he offers a open and honest style of punditry, rather than sitting on the fence.
And he does his job on both channels exceptionally well. A reminder of why I blocked this nasty account. (Unblocked just for this tweet). ? https://t.co/mLo2J9buiL
