Chris Kamara thanks the Middlesbrough fans for their support

Chris Kamara has thanked Middlesbrough fans for showing their support for the TV presenter during Saturday night’s home game against Rotherham.

Middlesbrough-born Kamara, 64, who left Sky Sports at the end of last season, struggles with speech apraxia and revealed this week that as a broadcaster he felt like a “cheater”.

Boro fans unfurled a banner during the Sky Bet Championship match that read: “You’re not a cheater, you’re amazing Kammy.”

The former Portsmouth, Swindon and Leeds midfielder responded on social media, saying on Twitter: “Wow that’s ‘amazing Jeff’. Thanks”.

‘Incredible Jeff’ became one of Kamara’s hugely popular catchphrases while working as a Sky Sports reporter when describing the game action to Jeff Stelling, the presenter of Football Saturday.

Kamara told Steven Bartlett’s Diary from a CEO podcast this week that he was considering quitting all television work at the end of last season, but after being persuaded to move on, he was “double busy than I was before.”

When asked how life is for him at the moment, Kamara said on the podcast: “Strange in terms of how I now feel like a cheat in terms of broadcasting – I’m not bringing to the table what I used to do . So that’s hard.

“I feel like I’m doing these programs and they’re not bringing out the best in me, but they tolerate me. That’s how it feels.

“My life off screen couldn’t be better – grandkids, family, it’s perfect.” Chris Kamara thanks the Middlesbrough fans for their support
