Manchester United legend Gary Neville has grown his financial assets to £70million after taking on roles with 66 companies, official records indicate.
Since hanging up his boots in 2011, Neville has become a well-respected pundit on Sky Sports while also co-owning Salford City with fellow Class of 92 members David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and brother Phil.
But in addition to that, Companies House records show the former England defender has also been involved with over 60 firms following his retirement 10 years ago.
Some of those firms have since been dissolved, nevertheless, and are no longer trading as things stand.
Neville’s portfolio includes restaurants, film production, estate agency and eco schemes.
His hotel businesses, Hotel Football and the Stock Exchange Hotel, is believed to have around £20million in assets, while his property development company has assets of £10.5million.
The 46-year-old’s remaining businesses have combined assets of more than £40million.
Neville co-owns Hotel Football and the Stock Exchange Hotel with former team-mate Giggs, and the pair made an admirable gesture during the fight against Covid-19 last year by making rooms available to NHS workers.
They have endured a difficult week at Salford City, however, after sacking Richie Wellens less than five months into his reign as manager last week.

And Jamie Carragher, Neville’s colleague on Sky Sports, took to Twitter in the wake of the dismissal to poke fun at his co-pundit for his previous stance on sackings.
In 2018 Neville wrote on Twitter: “The scary thing is that a large % of people now actually support these sackings as they’ve become accustomed to it…
“How can you build a football team without getting 2-3 years. A rule change is required to moderate sackings of managers mid season in their first year at a club.”
Carragher posted a screenshot of Neville’s old tweet following Wellens’ sacking and included a series of laughing emojis.
