1.- Gary Lineker – Sky Sports

As a footballer during his career, perhaps Gary Lineker wasn’t as successful as he would’ve wanted but he is well-respected amongst the other players from his era.

However, once he started his media career there was no stopping the Leicester City product.

Since the late ’90s when he started working for the BBC, Lineker has presented the program by the name of “Match of the Day”, which is arguably the most famous English/spoken football show in television history.

Gary is already going strong on over 20 years with this show, but he has also worked for several other media companies around the world and made coverage of several major football tournaments.

Lineker also has a very strong Social Media presence with his over 7 million Twitter followers, a true powerhouse of football punditry.
