However, Pier’s responsibility is to head up the Soccer Aid World XI alongside former football manager Harry Redknapp, 72. In view of his 6.67 million followers, he retweeted a clip taken from Lorraine’s morning show which read: “Which team are you backing at this weekend’s @socceraid? England captain @Mo_Farah tells his ‘mate’ @reallorraine that he’s feeling confident with @susannareid100 leading the team: ‘I definitely believe in Susanna… Girl power!’”.
