Stan Collymore forged a reputation as a formidable English Premier League striker before building a career as one of Britain’s most recognizable football broadcasters.
On Thursday, the former Liverpool and England goalscorer made his debut for the CNN Football Club.
Collymore scored 97 goals in a career which spanned a decade, including 26 in 61 games for Liverpool.
Since hanging up his boots in 2001, Collymore has become well-known for his forthright views on television, radio and social media.
On CNN FC, he was alongside former France and Paris Saint-Germain winger David Ginola to debate the forthcoming European Champions League semifinals, which see Barcelona take on Bayern Munich and Real Madrid face Borussia Dortmund.
The duo, alongside host Pedro Pinto, also debated this week’s poll question, which asks, do Bayern Munich need Josep Guardiola?

Do think Aston Villa will survive what has been a torrid season?
What is your opinion on the last two nil-nil draws for Liverpool, do you think they were unlucky not to win due to the amount of shots and great goalkeeping or is it a problem within the team and/or coaching staff?
Stan, at what point do you think the MLS will be a viable signing option for a player like you in your heyday? How many years off before MLS becomes a top league, if ever?
Stan, who's the best defender you've ever played against during your career?

It's a joy to listen to the insights of Stan. Was a wonderful footballer who excelled in the art of making constructive decisions when in sight of the goal posts. All the best to the broadcaster.
