Both Frank Lampard and Jurgen Klinsmann face challenges in the U.S. as the summer months near, but that won’t stop either from participating in media work for a tournament across the Atlantic.
BBC announced on Monday that both Lampard and Klinsmann will be a part of the organization’s team to cover the upcoming Euro 2016 tournament. The two join a star-studded coverage team that also features former New York Red Bulls captain Thierry Henry, as well as England legends Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand.
According to Goal USA, Lampard will handle his Euro duties remotely rather than traveling to France.
According to U.S. Men’s National Team press officer Michael Kammarman, Klinsmann’s involvement has yet to be finalized, and any involvement will take place after the USMNT’s involvement in the Copa America Centenario.
Euro 2016 will be played between June 10 – July 10.
