He has hosted England internationals, Champions league matches, FA Cup games, Wembley finals, and covered World Cup finals and the Olympics. David took over as the host of Super Sunday and MNF in 2016, anchoring the Premier League’s biggest games alongside Thierry Henry, Jamie Redknapp, Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness.

Jason Burt has been the Chief Football Correspondent for The Telegraph since 2016. Prior to that he was Football Correspondent for The Sunday Telegraph and The Independent. Jason scooped the first interview with Kylian Mbappe following his £166million move to Paris Saint-Germain and broke the news that Phillipe Coutinho was moving to Barcelona for £142million. Football reporting is not his only career in journalism. He was Executive Editor of The Independent, in charge of home and foreign news and production and edited the newspaper at least once a week overseeing general election campaigns and the coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States.
