BBC name unexpected Premier League legend on World Cup pundit team

Have to admit, we weren't expecting to him there

The BBC have announced their punditry line up for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and have done so in a rather novel way, by essentially borrowing from all the best and worst transfer announcements video ever.

While the BBC's attempt doesn't have quite the same impact as those of Besiktas or Roma, they have announced a pretty impressive and surprising team of pundits, with the main draw undoubtedly being Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

The 40-year-old is currently banging in absolutely pingers of goals for American side Phoenix Rising after leaving MLS side Montreal Impact in 2016, and his appearance is certainly something of a coup for the BBC.

He'll join an interesting list of pundits for the tournament including West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta, former USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann, former England women's international Alex Scott, Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Jermaine Jenas and Alan Shearer.

The BBC's World Cup coverage starts on June 14 and you can watch the video below.
