Gary Lineker pictured arriving at Leicester match against Chelsea after being forced to step back from Match of the Day by BBC – THE INFORMANTI

Gary Lineker is at the King Power Stadium to watch his beloved Leicester against Chelsea.

The 62-year-old is at the centre of a mammoth media storm after being taken off his role as presenter of Match of the Day by the BBC this weekend.

But that has not stopped Lineker from enjoying his Saturday afternoon and he was pictured arriving at the King Power Stadium to watch Leicester face Chelsea.

The former striker is a huge Foxes fan, having played for the club for nine years at the start of his career before moves to Tottenham, Barcelona and Everton.

Lineker is expected to get a grand welcoming from the Leicester fans, a club he has followed since he was a boy.

And all eyes will be on the Match of the Day presenter, who was effectively suspended from his job for his criticism of the government.

The ex-England international blasted a new asylum policy being rolled out by Home Secretary Suella Braverman.

On social media, Lineker likened the language used by the government as that by Germany in the 1930s.

The BBC’s decision has been met with widespread outrage, including from fellow Match of the Day pundits Ian Wright and Alan Shearer.

Both pulled out of this weekend’s MOTD show in solidarity with Lineker with Wright tweeting: “Everybody knows what Match of the Day means to me, but I’ve told the BBC I won’t be doing it tomorrow. Solidarity.”

Shearer also tweeted: “I have informed the BBC that I won’t be appearing on MOTD tomorrow night.”

Micah Richards, Jermaine Jenas, Alex Scott and Mark Chapman have also informed the company they are not taking part in presenting duties.
