Micah Richards, Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher turning tables on Kate Abdo is brilliant TV

Micah Richards, Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher are the dream trio on Champions League nights over on CBS Sports.

The three former Premier League stars have wonderful chemistry with each other and the show’s main host, Kate Abdo.

Clint Dempsey stepped in for Richards during the opening round of Champions League fixtures and the American slotted in seamlessly, but it still wasn’t quite the same without ‘Big Meeks’ on the panel.

Richards returned for Wednesday night’s round of fixtures, which included Manchester City vs Borussia Dortmund, and another evening of hilarity ensued.

The former England international has such an infectious personality and brings so much positive energy to whichever studio he’s working in. He’s been a massive hit with viewers on Sky Sports, BBC Sport and CBS Sports over the past few years.

In The Mixer – Panel ask Kate Abdo questions

CBS Sports do a regular segment on Champions League weeks called ‘In The Mixer’, where the show’s host asks the panel a series of quick-fire questions.

But there was a surprise twist with the latest In The Mixer, as the panel turned the tables on Abdo and asked *her* a series of questions including: ‘What’s the most nervous you’ve been on air?’, ‘Most impressive footballer you’ve ever interviewed?’ and, most embarrassingly of all, ‘Who was your first kiss?’

To the last question, Kate revealed that it was with someone behind the bins at school.

“The bins?” Henry said. “I thought you were a bit more classy!”

It’s well worth watching the full six-minute segment. You won’t be disappointed.

Judging by the reaction to the clip, it’s clear that many football fans would love to see Richards, Carragher, Henry and Abdo broadcasting on UK TV screens on Champions League nights.

But for the time being it’s US-based football fans who get to enjoy top-tier insight and comedy from a group of stars who work so well together.
