Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler has revealed he is a Woking fan. 

Tyler, who has been commentating on the Premier League for Sky Sports since 1992, has been criticised for showing bias towards Manchester United which has led to suggestions that he supports the Red Devils.

Liverpool fans were left disgruntled by the way in which Tyler described Anthony Martial’s goal on debut for United against their side back in September 2015.

But the 72-year-old has quashed those views by saying he supports National League side Woking. 

‘I don’t do social media and this is one of the reasons why,’ Tyler told The Mirror. ‘They all think I support somebody. I support Woking and I am quite happy to say that.

‘How can I be a Man United fan when I’ve got excited about Aguero. All I do is react to the game.

‘I first went to Woking when I was eight years old and it was the first football I had ever seen.

‘I’m still in touch with the club although I coach at a level just below them so it’s difficult to see them too much now. They’ve always been my team.’ 

Tyler, who is first team coach of Hampton & Richmond Borough in the National League South, does not follow a Premier League team.

‘This thing where you have to have a Premier League team is garbage,’ he said.

‘It’s the accident of birth. It’s the one thing that irks me when people say you must have a Premier League team, I absolutely, categorically don’t.

‘It’s a great bonus to not have a Premier League team. I’m probably the only commentator to not have a Premier League club.’
