In this article, Daily Star Sport explores the football clubs that some of the most popular pundits support.
One of the most famous pundits, Roy Keane, is often associated with Manchester United, where he played for 12 years and won numerous trophies.
However, Keane’s favourite team is actually Celtic, the Scottish club he supported as a boy.
Former Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards caused a stir recently when he revealed that his childhood hero was Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
This sparked speculation that Richards may secretly support Arsenal, but he has since confirmed that he has no allegiance to any Premier League club.
Gary Neville is another pundit who is often associated with Manchester United, having played for the club for his entire career.
Unsurprisingly, Neville is a die-hard United fan and has been vocal in his support for the club throughout his punditry career.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is a regular pundit on Sky Sports and is often praised for his insightful analysis.
Carragher is a lifelong Liverpool fan, having grown up on Merseyside, and his passion for the club is evident in his commentary.
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has also forged a successful career as a pundit since retiring from playing.
Ferdinand is a Manchester United legend and his support for the club is unwavering, often leading to criticism from rival fans.
Football pundits may have a range of clubs they support, often surprising fans who assumed they supported their former team.
Whether they support their childhood team or their former club, their passion for the game is evident in their analysis and commentary.
