Gary Neville responds to Man Utd’s Champions League win over PSG

Gary Neville had a brilliant response to Manchester United’s Champions League win over PSG. The Red Devils got their European campaign started with a 2-1 triumph at the Parc des Princes. Bruno Fernandes got the game going from the penalty spot on 23 minutes. 

Anthony Martial headed into his own net in the second half before Marcus Rashford won it with a low drive into the bottom corner. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side earned high praise after the win, their second in a row after beating Newcastle 4-1. 

And Neville, who won eight Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues at Old Trafford, shared an image on Twitter that suggested he enjoyed the game. 

Smiling into the camera, the Sky Sports pundit held up a bottle of Moet champagne.

Accompanying the snap, he simply shared an emoji of clinking glasses as the full-time whistle blew in Paris. 

But Neville was less impressed with United’s involvement in plans for a European Premier League.

He told Sky Sports: “The big issue that I have with it, is that at this moment in time, in the middle of a pandemic and when football is on its knees at so many different levels, the idea that a $6bn package is being put together to set up a new league when lower clubs are scrambling around to pay wages and stay in existence.

“It’s another wound for football. It doesn’t feel like the right time to be talking about this.

“The leak probably doesn’t suit Manchester United or Liverpool at this moment in time as they’re seen as the big, bad bullies.

“I’m for [the] progression of football, with new competitions and new formats, but we have got to look after the fabric of the game and what it means to the communities in this country.

“There is a position, potentially, for a new European League and for an amazing Premier League, a fantastically competitive EFL and funded grassroots and non-league football. There is enough money.

“If they can pull $6bn together for a European league then they can pull together £150-200m to save the rest of football in this country.
