Who Turner Sports should hire for Champions League TV coverage

I say all of this as background because it’ll help underline why I suggest the following soccer experts be hired for the UEFA Champions League studio analysis. They are Taylor Twellman, Janusz Michallik and Craig Burley. Not surprisingly, all of them have worked (or continue to work) at ESPN. But each of the analysts is an expert in European soccer and has strong opinions and analysis that will help create a much more valuable experience for the viewer at home.

If Twellman is unavailable due to his contract with ESPN (presumably until after Euro 2020), Turner Sports needs to consider hiring Eric Wynalda as a studio analyst. That is, however, with one caveat. Wynalda needs to be given a little more freedom to be himself and to share his honest opinions. Too many times on the FOX broadcasts of UEFA Champions League, Wynalda has been “held back” by his colleagues where he’s unable to give his vision as a soccer coach and player. When he’s forced into giving a soundbite, the broadcast misses out on the opinions and clarity that he sees that many other analysts miss.

Turner Sports has plenty of time to start executing its plan to hit the ground running with its UEFA Champions League coverage in August, 2018. Having said that, it’s never too early to start laying the groundwork for the talent and vision of how to make this prestigious soccer property a bigger and more valuable success.
