Adrian Chiles has been replaced as ITV’s lead football presenter with immediate effect by Mark Pougatch.

Pougatch will present ITV’s next live match which is the Chelsea vs Paris Saint-Germain Champions League game next month.

ITV will not comment on the reasons for Adrian’s departure.

Mark said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining ITV and to be given this great opportunity. I’m looking forward to working with ITV’s talented pool of commentators and pundits on some of the very best football there is.”

ITV Director of Sport, Niall Sloane, said: “Mark is a highly-respected sports journalist and an outstanding broadcaster. We’re delighted to welcome Mark to the ITV Sport team.”

Earlier this month it was reported that ITV will not renew their current second presenter Matt Smith’s contract at the end of the season, while pundit Andy Townsend has left by mutual consent.
