TNT Sports vs CBS Sports rich list: How star line-ups compare as they go head-to-head in Champions League coverage | The Sun
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE nights are always a blockbuster occasion – on both sides of the pond.
And as the new season gets underway, viewers in the UK are preparing for new-look coverage with Laura Woods fronting TNT Sports.
Over in America, meanwhile, CBS have the broadcast rights with former Sky Sports star Kate Abdo in the presenter's hotseat.
But who are the key players-turned-pundits providing all the expert analysis – and how much are they worth?
Well, TNT have retained many of the pundits who worked for BT Sport last season as Manchester City were crowned Kings of Europe.
And that means the three main stars are Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole and Peter Crouch – with Owen Hargreaves, Steve McManaman, Joleon Lescott, Michael Owen and Paul Scholes among those also used.

Ferdinand enjoyed the most successful career on the pitch of the flagship trio, collecting ten major honours with Manchester United including six Premier League crowns – plus the Intertoto Cup with West Ham.
Now the retired centre-back combines his punditry work with various other ventures including his #5 Magazine, podcast and shop, White Chalk Music record label, Rio Ferdinand Foundation, the DeliveryApp tech platform and his Rosso restaurant.
Reports online suggest Ferdinand's wealth stands at around £58million.
Cole was Ferdinand's Hammers team-mate for that Intertoto Cup win but went to Chelsea, where he won six trophies as the Blues lost the 2008 Champions League final to United.
