From Gary Neville to Jamie Carragher: Who has the highest earning Sky Sports pundits salary?

With Premier League television rights only continuing to skyrocket since its formation back in 1993, Sky Sports has cemented its spot as the pioneer of English football.

With tens of millions of fans tuning in to watch England’s elite each week, the need for both world-class analysis and all-star pundits have become almost as essential as the teams that feature on a Saturday afternoon.

Hosting a stacked punditry talent roster that includes a string of Premier League icons, we have taken a look at who are the highest-earning Sky Sports pundits.

 

What is Gary Neville’s salary?

While Gary Neville might have briefly left his position as Sky Sports’ poster boy as the former Manchester United defender endured a nightmare spell as Valencia’s manager, the 48-year-old quickly returned to the studio.

Certainly seen as one of the main faces among Sky Sports’ punditry team, the ex-England international has been one of the pioneers of the punditry world.

Reported to have earned a pay rise of $390,000 after returning to Sky following his infamous managerial spell with Valencia back in 2016, it is Neville who finds himself as the highest-paid pundit on Sky Sports.

Now 12 years on from his debut as a Sky Sports pundit, it is reported that the eight-time Premier League winner earns £1.1million each season.

 

What is Jamie Carragher’s salary?

While it might be Neville who earns the highest salary among Sky’s all-star punditry team, the former Manchester United ace wouldn’t be half as successful without his famous wingman.

Originally joining Sky Sports’ punditry team ahead of the 2013/14 season, Jamie Carragher has followed Neville in becoming one of the most recognisable analysts in world football.

Although the two former England defenders might have had a famously frosty relationship during their playing days, Sky’s ultimate double act have quickly become the kings of the punditry world.

Crowned Pundit of the Year by the Football Supporters’ Association back in 2019, it is reported that Carragher has a salary of £1million each year.

 

What is Roy Keane’s salary?

Although Roy Keane might still be regarded as one of the most iconic players in Premier League history, the former Manchester United skipper has taken the punditry world by storm.

Making his punditry debut in the Sky Sports studio back in 2019, the cutting Irishman has gained a reputation for his hard-hitting opinions and certainly doesn’t hold back on his views.

Widely regarded to be arguably the most likable pundit among Sky’s stacked talent roster, Keane certainly has fans hanging on his every word and has become one of the key factors behind Sky’s global success.

While the 52-year-old might have been heavily linked with a potential return to the dugout over the past couple of years, the Manchester United icon reportedly earns a salary of £1million each season as a pundit.

 

What is Micah Richards’ salary?

Although it might be Neville and Carragher who still sit as the faces of Sky Sports’ punditry team, Micah Richards has continued to see his reputation skyrocket since retiring as a player back in 2019.

A regular analyst during the weekend fixtures, the former Manchester City defender has also formed both a heartwarming and shocking partnership with Keane in the Sky studio.

While both might have completely different approaches when it comes to their outlook in the studio, Richards has endeared himself to football fans up and down the country.

Although the 35-year-old might have only made his punditry debut with Sky Sports a couple of years ago, it has been suggested that the 13-cap England international is reportedly earns a salary of £205,000 for each season he is in front of the cameras.
