JEFF STELLING tweeted a heartwarming response after Chris Kamara called him the "best broadcaster" he's ever met.
The veteran Soccer Saturday is hanging up his mic this weekend after 25 years in the job.
Stelling, 68, has worked with Kamara for many of those years – with the pair becoming much beloved for their "unbelievable" exchanges.
Ahead of Stelling's final show tomorrow, Kammy wrote: "This Sunday sees the last day at Sky for the best broadcaster I have ever met @JeffStelling.
“I am getting my tribute in early because Jeff has been a massive part of my life and I love him to bits.
"One of the things I do miss is working with the maestro."
