Ferdinand names his dream punditry line up as BBC and ITV prepare to do battle

Rio Ferdinand has established himself as one of the biggest names on the punditry scene alongside the likes of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.

The former Manchester United and Liverpool players have revolutionised the punditry game, taking over from the likes of Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson.

And ahead of the Euro 2020, both BBC and ITV have named a host of strong names fronting their coverage this summer. Ferdinand, himself, will be on the BBC alongside the likes of Alan Shearer, Alex Scott and Thierry Henry.

ITV, meanwhile, have brought on Sky's best in Roy Keane, Gary Neville and Graeme Souness.

While both broadcasters have gone all out in a bid to win the viewing figures war, Daily Star Sport asked Ferdinand himself who be on his dream punditry panel.

Given the scenario that England progressed to the final, it was put to Ferdinand who he would have alongside him in an all-star punditry line-up.

“Pep Guardiola, Sir Alex Ferguson and Jurgen Klopp," he said. "That would be good. Get a bit of insight there."

Who has the better punditry line up: BBC or ITV? Comment below.

England kick off their Euro 2020 campaign on Sunday against Croatia, the same nation that knocked the Three Lions out of the World Cup at the semi-final stage in 2018.

Asked how he thinks Gareth Southgate's side will do this summer, Ferdinand said: "I think they’ll win the group but they’ll have a hard draw after that."

BBC are showing the first England clash to land an early blow against rivals ITV.

Full BBC line up:Alan Shearer, Alex Scott, Rio Ferdinand, Micah Richards, Ashley Williams, Mark Hughes, James McFadden, Shelley Kerr, Charlie Adam, Thierry Henry, Cesc Fabregas, Jurgen Klinsmann.
