Jamie Carragher Announces Who Will Take Over For Gary Neville On MNF

Posted by

​According to reports in the ​Daily Mail, Craig Bellamy could be in line to take over from Gary Neville on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show.

The former Manchester United right-back’s insight and analysis have made the show one of the must-watch pieces of football television every week, but he stepped down from the job when he signed a six-month deal to take over as manager at Valencia last week.

Sky are reportedly yet to settle on a long-term replacement for the 40-year-old, but the Mail report that Bellamy looks to be one of the front-runners, after his retirement from football 18 months ago.

There’s still not even confirmation on who will take over from Neville on the show for Monday night’s game between Everton and Crystal Palace, will Neville obviously already unavailable.

The Mail quoted one observer, who said: “Bellamy would have a lot to say. He could very entertaining and spiky. It would be a change for Sky, who had two “one-club” men before. When you look at Gary Neville, you think Manchester United and it’s the same with Jamie Carragher and Liverpool. Although he is another ex-Liverpool man “on the couch”, Craig has had more clubs than Tiger Woods, so nobody could accuse him of bias! Not even Jose Mourinho.”

Jamie Carragher posted on Twitter on Sunday night that Neville’s spot would be taken by a revolving ‘guest’ spot, but it’s assumed that the position will be filled eventually – and Bellamy could be the man to do it.
