Gary Neville has left the comfortable world of the Sky Sports studio to become head coach of Valencia, which is obviously a huge shame for every armchair football supporter.

Neville was universally regarded as the best pundit on television - a successful former pro who combined his immense knowledge and passion for football with humour and wit - and there’s no doubt he will be missed.

But who does the ex-Manchester United captain regard as the best pundits on TV? Scroll down this page to watch Neville reveal all.

“The one I like watching most is Paul Scholes,” Neville told the young Football Beyond Borders presenter. “He makes me laugh because I know him so well.”

“The best pundit is the one I work with, Jamie Carragher, because I work with him all the time.”

Carragher has done an excellent job at Sky

The interview was filmed shortly before Neville was appointed the Valencia boss last week, hence why he named Carragher as one of his current colleagues.

Carragher has done a fine job since becoming a Sky Sports pundit at the start of the 2013-14 campaign and now founds himself as the lead pundit on Monday Night Football following his mate’s sudden departure.

Last night he worked alongside his former Liverpool teammate Craig Bellamy, who did a reasonably good job. However, it’s already abundantly clear that replacing Neville will be an impossible task.

Scholes is growing into his role with BT Sport

Scholes, meanwhile, barely said a word during his 20-year playing career but you can’t keep him quiet these days.

One of Neville’s best friends in football, it’s no surprise that he named Scholes as one of his favourites - even if he does work for BT Sport.
