Troopz leaves Arsenal Fan TV following controversy over Claude sacking

Troopz has announced he is leaving AFTV after several years featuring on the popular fan channel.

The outspoken Gunners supporter grew to fame thanks to his explosive post-match interviews aired on the AFTV YouTube channel, which has over 1.2million subscribers.

Troopz went on to take a more serious role and starred on a variety of shows alongside the outlet's founder Robbie Lyle.

But the diehard Arsenal man will no longer feature on the show as he is moving to the United States, though he plans to keep presenting with the launch of his own podcast.

Troopz announced his departure from AFTV during a heartfelt video on his YouTube channel on Tuesday.

"I don't even know how to start this video, it's quarter past three in the morning," he said. "I never thought I'd be doing this video but I'm leaving AFTV.

"Four years of amazing times, making some great content, meeting some great people along the way.

"I'm moving to New York, without a date at the moment but it will be in the next few weeks, and I'm going to be doing the same kind of stuff.

"I'm gonna get a podcast, called Back Again With Troopz."

Troopz's departure comes after his friend and fellow contributor Claude Callegari was axed from AFTV for a racist remark about Tottenham star Son Heung-min.

But Troopz explained his decision has nothing to do with "beef" between himself and Robbie Lyle. Instead, he is set to take on a role with American outlet Barstool Sports .

“I don’t want people to feel like I’m selling out, I don’t want people to think like there is beef between me and AFTV, me and Robbie," Troopz added.

“It’s none of that, if anything I want to big up Robbie because Robbie gave me the opportunity. Robbie was the one that convinced me to take this YouTube thing seriously.”

Troopz's own YouTube channel boasts over 160,000 subscribers, while his Instagram account is followed by almost a quarter of a million people.
