Clint Dempsey stepped in for Micah Richards as CBS Sports’ coverage of the 2022-23 Champions League season began on Tuesday.

Richards, Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry have entertained football fans in America with their Champions League punditry over the past few years.

Some of the funniest clips involving the trio (and there have been many) have subsequently gone viral on social media.

It was a shame not to see Richards on the panel on Tuesday night, although it feels like Dempsey will be a fantastic addition to the team this season based on his first appearance.

The former USA international, best known for his five-year spell with Fulham between 2007-2012, came out with some great lines – including “gotta get the snip!” when reminded that he has five children and another on the way.

Dempsey also had his fellow pundit Henry laughing earlier in the show, albeit for different reasons.

When asked which teams they fancy to win this season’s Champions League, Dempsey said: “I’ll do something different, I’ll pick a dark horse. I’m not biased at all but I think maybe Tottenham.”

Arsenal legend Henry’s reaction was priceless.

The Frenchman said: “Shall I leave now? What?!”

He then turned away from the former Spurs midfielder.

“[Antonio] Conte’s a winner,” Dempsey added. “Maybe he doesn’t have a great record in the Champions League, but I think it’s them.

“It’s looking like they’re going from strength to strength and they’ve done well in the transfer window.”
