Antonio to launch radical podcast


Hammer Michail Antonio and Newcastle player Callum Wilson have launched the Footballer’s Football Podcast with the first episode is out via the BBC.

The show includes special guests, with Hammers fan Russell Brand in episode one.

Michail Antonio said: “This podcast is a first. I love breaking the mould, being the innovator. We’re going to tell it like it is. We’ll cover the big talking points and reveal the reality of life as a Premier League player. My dream guests would be Beyonce and Jay Z.”

The Premier League pair will be peeling back the curtain on life as an elite player in the Premier League.

It’s a pundit-free zone as the duo get stuck into the talking points from the weekend’s action and dissect the highs and lows of being a footballer.

Every week, they’ll be joined by a special guest from film, music or perhaps a fellow player to share their stories and chat through the similarities and differences of how they approach their careers.

It’s a chance to find out a player’s view of football, with new episodes dropping weekly every Friday.
