Gary Neville’s old tweet comes back to haunt him as Salford sack another manager

Gary Neville’s old tweet has come back to haunt him after Salford City sacked yet another manager.

Salford, who are owned by a cohort of former Manchester United stars including Neville, relieved Gary Bowyer of his duties on Tuesday. Bowyer failed to guide the Ammies to League Two promotion, resulting in his two-year contract being cut short a year early.

His sacking continued a pattern of Salford managers frequently being sacked since entering the EFL in 2019. And an old Neville tweet has now resurfaced where the co-owner called out clubs for not giving managers a chance by regularly dismissing them.

A hoard of fans took to Twitter to share screenshots of the tweet, which read: “The scary thing is that a large % of people now actually support these sackings as they’ve become accustomed to it…

“How can you build a football team without getting 2-3 years. A rule change is required to moderate sackings of managers in their first year a club.”

One angry supporter sent Neville the tweet while commenting: “What happened to trusting the process @GNev2?”

Another wrote: “Perhaps you should take your own advice.”

Meanwhile, Sky Sports colleague Jamie Carragher could not miss out on the opportunity to dig out his friend, tweeting: “@GNev2 puts more people out of work than Boris Johnson.”

Salford have finished 11th, 8th and 10th in their three seasons so far in the EFL and Gary Neville and co are still yet to successfully clinch promotion into the third tier. Bowyer’s sacking means a fourth different man will be at the helm in less than two years.

Graham Alexander secured promotion from the National League but was sacked in October 2020, while successor Richie Wellens lasted less than four months. Former Lincoln manager Michael Appleton is now the favourite for the vacancy.
