Aluko First Female Pundit on MOTD

1 Oct

The BBC’s famous Match of the Day brand welcomed its first ever female pundit on Sunday, Chelsea Ladies forward Eniola Aluko. She participated on a lunchtime panel for the MOTD2 Extra webcast, and discussed Rooney’s red card, Costa’s performances, and other important football topics.

I didn’t get a chance to tune in but I’ve heard Aluko on Chelsea TV before, and I say she was a great choice for the show. Intelligent, articulate, opinionated. Great job Eni! Hope this leads to more appearances and (hopefully) a spot on the MOTD television show.
