Gary Neville Net Worth and Salary
Gary Neville has a net worth of $25million and has made a career for himself as a pundit after hanging up his boots. A regular for Sky Sports, he is a very opinionated pundit who is not afraid to speak his mind. If anything, it makes for box office viewing.
The Englishman currently earns around £1.5million per year in wages. Neville must be given credit for doing well for himself even after his football career.
Gary Neville Club Career
A one-club man, Gary Neville came through the United youth system alongside his brother Phil Neville. He led the club’s youngsters to the FA Youth Cup in his first season (1991) before being promoted to the senior side in 1992.
Alongside Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes, the Neville brothers laid a young but solid foundation for continued success on the pitch at Old Trafford.
Neville took over as the first-choice right-back in the 1994-95 season and kept his spot until his retirement in 2011. He formed a stellar combination with Beckham on the right, overwhelming their opponents on the flank.
Sir Alex Ferguson handed Neville the armband following Roy Keane’s departure in 2005. The full-back captained the team with distinction, leading the club to two Premier League titles, two League Cups, a UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Neville wore his heart on the sleeve and is among the best right-backs in Premier League history. He will always be celebrated for the role he played in United’s glory years under Sir Alex Ferguson.
A traditional English right-back, he retired in 2011, having played 599 games for United, scoring seven goals and making 48 assists.
Gary Neville International Career
Given his success at Old Trafford, it was always a matter of time before Neville made it on the international stage. He made his debut for England in a friendly against Japan in 1995.
He would go on to make 85 appearances in a career that spanned 14 years on the international stage. Neville represented England at Euro 96, FIFA World Cup 1998, Euro 2000, Euro 2004 and the FIFA World Cup 2006.
The United legend was in with a shot of succeeding Beckham as Three Lions’ captain in 2006 only for John Terry to be named as the skipper instead. Curiously Neville never found the back of the net for England but found himself at the wrong end with two own goals.
Gary Neville Current Job
Following his retirement from the game in 2011, Neville took to punditry and served as a commentator for Sky Sports. He eventually took over as the manager of Valencia in what proved to be an exceedingly poor stint at the Mestalla in 2015.
He didn’t last long at the La Liga club and was sacked soon after, following which he returned to Sky in 2016. He also served as the England assistant manager from 2012-2016.
Now a full-time pundit, he is a regular on Sky Sports and is often seen giving valuable insights into the game. Alongside Jamie Carragher, the United legend forms a duo worthy of entertaining television.
Neville is also a regular on the public speaking circuit and has taken part in popular conversations with the likes of Roy Keane. He also writes newspaper columns for outlets such as the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph.
