TV3 have announced that Richard Dunne will join their Champions League coverage next week.

With Damien Duff already earning plaudits for his appearances on RTE's panel during Champions League coverage, most recently on Tuesday night for Manchester City's trip to PSG, Dunne has decided to try his hand at punditry.

Dunne has been a stalwart of Irish international campaigns and was in the squad during Ireland's disastrous 2012 European Championships campaign in Poland.

Many deem his finest performance in a green jersey is his performance against Russia in 2011.

Dunne will be joined by former team-mate Kevin Kilbane, Brian Kerr, Neil Lennon and host Tommy Martin.
