Gus Johnson To Commentate UEFA Champions League Game On April Fools’ Day

Gus Johnson, “one of the best soccer commentators in the world” according to a FOX Sports pundit, is scheduled to make his return to the soccer airwaves on April 1 to announce the UEFA Champions League game between Bayern Munich and Manchester United. And no, it’s not an April Fools’ Day joke.

It’s been over 8 months since Johnson has announced a soccer game on television, but FOX Sports will once again throw him in the deep end despite his very limited experience, this time for the high-profile UEFA Champions League quarter-final between Bayern and United, which will be shown live on FOX Sports 1 at 2:45pm ET on Tuesday.

Johnson will be joined by Eric Wynalda, who will co-commenate alongside announcer Johnson at Old Trafford.

Rob Stone will host the pregame, halftime and postgame coverage with pundits Warren Barton and Brian McBride. On Tuesday’s show, Mikael Silvestre will be in the studio, while Mario Melchiot will be in the studio on Wednesday.
