Alan Hansen retires from BBC Match of the Day after 22 years

Alan Hansen will leave Match of the Day this evening after 22 years on the programme.

Hansen, who is now 58, has been a leading analyst on the highlights show since 1992 after a stellar playing career with Liverpool.

He’s final act will be to join Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, Robbie Savage, Danny Murphy and Phil Neville in Brazil apart of the BBC’s team covering the 2014 World Cup.

“Alan has had a terrific career as an outstanding football pundit for BBC Sport over the last two decades,” said the BBC.

“We discussed his future at the end of last season, where he spoke of his intention to step away from regular broadcasting when his contract expires after the World Cup.”

The World Cup is live on the BBC and ITV from 12 June – 13 July 2014.
