Not everyone is an expert in football, sometimes even the most loyal football fans fail to analyse the game, let it be the positive or the negative aspect. It takes a lot of insight and experience to break down a game of football and explain the nature of the game and none do it better than expert football pundits.
 
 
 
Some of them are retired professional footballers while others have been a part of the game long enough to give football fans and audiences an expert analysis of the lovely game of football. On this note, let’s take a look at five of the best football pundits on tv right now.
