Gary Neville has signed for Sky Sports, the former England and Manchester United defender will join the Sky Sports team from the start of the 2011-12 season.
Neville, 36, is well-placed to co-commentate and give his expert opinion on UEFA Champions League, Barclays Premier League, Carling Cup and future international fixtures and he is looking forward to the fresh challenge.
"I am thrilled to be joining Sky Sports," said Neville, who won 15 major trophies over a career spanning almost two decades.
"It has always been leading the way in football coverage. Now I have retired this feels like the perfect way for me to stay involved in football and I am looking forward to bringing my 19 years of match experience into television.
Neville spent his entire playing career with Manchester United and in 602 appearances for the club, won the UEFA Champions League, eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups and the UEFA Cup Winners Cup. He is also the most-capped right-back for England with 85 international caps to his name.
Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis said: "Gary will bring vast experience at the top level of domestic and European football from nearly two decades with Manchester United.
"He will give our viewers great insight when he joins our team next season working on Barclays Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Carling Cup football next season."
Described by Sir Alex Ferguson as "the best right-back of his generation", Neville was part of the United squad which won the FA Youth Cup in 1992 alongside David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes.
Neville's most recent appearance in the Sky Sports studio was at Millennium Stadium for the UEFA Euro 2012 Qualifier between Wales and England on 26 March 2011.SauceSo, I can't wait for him and Jamie "did you know my best mate's Frank Lampard" Redknapp to be co-pundits :D
