Former Manchester United and England player Gary Neville will be a pundit for ITV’s coverage of World Cup 2018.

The former England stalwart, who played in the 1998 and 2006 World Cups, will be a key part of ITV’s studio team, based in Moscow throughout the tournament, which kicks off in June 2018.

“I’m delighted to join the team at ITV for next summer’s World Cup coverage and thank Sky for also making it possible,” said Gary

“I’ll look forward to joining up with them in Russia next June.”

He’ll join ITV’s main football presenter, Mark Pougatch, along with fellow pundits, including his former United team-mate Ryan Giggs, Ian Wright and Lee Dixon.

Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport, added: “Gary Neville is one of the most respected and valued voices in football broadcasting.

“His experience, insight and understanding of both football and footballers will greatly enrich our coverage of next year’s World Cup.”

Gary’s deal to work for ITV during the World Cup was made in agreement with his colleagues at Sky Sports, where he is a regular expert analyst and co-commentator on their Premier League coverage.
