BBC Sports anchor Manish Bhasin has been identified as a consultant by leading gambling news and information website Gambling.com, expanding its football and sports editorial.
Bhasin, who hosts the flagship programs of BBC Sport Match of the Day 2, The Football League Show and Football Focus, will write for Gambling.com an exclusive column describing his insider’s view of the Premier League and wider football content.
The BBC anchor wrote his first Gambling.com article commenting on Monday night’s abhorrent scenes in Sofia, he said: “It’s great to be on board with my first column for Gambling.com, but I’m not so elated having to reflect on Monday night’s shocking scenes in Sofia as racism quite literally reared its ugly head to overshadow England’s fine 6-0 win over Bulgaria.”
In addition, Bhasin analyses the midfield problem of Gareth Southgate and looks to the weekend by highlighting three Premier League managers who might be under attack if things don’t go their way.
Gambling.com Content Marketing Manager, Dean Ryansaid: “Manish is a highly respected broadcaster and journalist who will provide intelligent and considered insight on all the latest footballing news.
“We’re delighted to have such an internationally renowned contributor to our team of writers and can’t wait to follow Manish’s views throughout this football season.”
