“I’m thrilled to become a part of LaLigaTV, a channel I’ve watched every weekend for the last two seasons,” said Lineker.
“I have fond memories of my time playing in Spain and very much look forward to sharing the excitement of LaLiga with viewers in the UK and elsewhere.”
Melcior Soler, Audiovisual Director at LaLiga, said: “Adding Gary Lineker to our talent pool is really exciting for LaLiga fans.
“He has a vast portfolio of presenting experience and an in-depth knowledge of Spanish football. We look forward to witnessing the expertise, energy and passion he will bring to LaLigaTV.”
The 60-year-old, one of the BBC’s highest-paid presenters, last year signed a new five-year contract with the broadcaster which included a 23 per cent pay cut.
