Football By Joe Crilly

Will Neville Be Back At Sky Next Season Or Will Bellamy Have A Swing?

He may currently be treading the managerial boards in Valencia but Gary Neville is William Hill’s 5/2 favourite to be named as partner for Jamie Carragher on next season’s Monday Night Football. Sky pundit Thierry Henry is 4/1 second favourite with the trio of Craig Bellamy, Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp all 6/1.

Other names seemingly in the frame include Roy Hodgson at 12/1, Phil Neville at 14/1 and John Terry 33/1.

“Gary Neville’s contract at Valencia only takes him up to the end of the season and should it not be renewed he will almost certainly return to Monday Night Football, however, a Sterling performance from Craig Bellamy on his debut has seen him come straight into the reckoning,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

To appear on Monday Night Football as a pundit on the first day of 2015/16 season: 5/2 Gary Neville; 4/1 Thierry Henry; 6/1 Craig Bellamy; 6/1 Graeme Souness; 6/1 Jamie Redknapp; 12/1 Roy Hodgson; 14/1 Kevin Davies; 14/1 Phil Neville; 20/1 Clarence Seedorf; 25/1 Clarke Carlisle; 25/1 Gareth Barry; 25/1 Kevin Nolan; 25/1 Matthew Upson; 25/1 Scott Parker; 33/1 John Terry; 33/1 Wayne Bridge; 40/1 Clint Hill; 40/1 Tim Howard
