About Gary Lineker

Lineker deploys the same boyish charm that has sustained his appearances promoting Walkers crisps on the sofa of Match of the Day, which he has presented since 1999. He has a five-year contract with the BBC, reportedly worth £2m a year. Another consistent earner has been his endorsement deal with Walkers, which is worth more than £1m a year. Although Lineker, 50, missed out on the most profitable years of the Premier League – he retired in 1994 – he concluded his playing days with a lucrative contract in Japan. Gary Lineker has an estimated net worth of $31.5 million.
