3 Former Manchester United Players Who Are Now Commentators

While most former Manchester United players chose a career in coaching after their retirement, these three Manchester United former players chose to become sport pundits and commentators and have been somewhat successful.

1. Robbie Savage.

Robbie Savage is a sport commentator for BT Sport and has been one of their staff since 2013. Robbie Savage is the father of Manchester United academy star Charlie Savage but did not really perform well at the club himself. He was promoted to the first team but sold almost immediately without making a single appearance for Manchester United in the Premier League.

2. Micheal Owen.

Owen was a Premier League Mercenary, playing for four Premier League clubs. The second to last Premier League club that he would play for was Manchester United where the former Balon d'Or winner would score just 17 goals in 52 appearances for the club.

He is currently a sport commentator for BT Sport and has been going at it since 2013.

3. Gary Neville.

Manchester United Legend and Owner Of Salford, Gary Neville decided to become a sport commentator after a failed attempt in trying out a club management position. Whether or not he would continue managing is still a mystery, but he currently commentates for Sky Sport and has been there since 2011, taking a career break in 2015 and continuing the following year.

Which other former Manchester United players do know that now commentate?, Let me know in the comments section.
