Several presenters revealed they would not be replacing Lineker on the show including Mark Chapman.
So in an attempt to be witty Baddiel put John Terry’s name forward in a jibe at the former Blues captain infamously standing in to lift the Champions League trophy in his kit in 2012 despite not playing in the final.
Baddiel, 58, quipped: “I wonder if, somewhere, John Terry is practicing using an autocue.”
Terry, 42, reacted angrily to the joke and used an emoji to label Baddiel a clown.
The ex-England captain replied saying: “Don’t use my name for a cheap laugh on social media!”
But after a boycott led by Ian Wright and Alan Shearer the BBC have decided to air Match of the Day without a presenter, pundits and even commentators.
Some fans called for BBC Sport’s Emma Louise Jones to replace Lineker.
Jones has also presented for Leeds TV in the past and for BBC Radio 5 Live.
Jermaine Jenas, Alex Scott, and Micah Richards all refused to fill in amid the chaos.
