Gary Neville continues FURIOUS European Super League attack with bizarre Leeds 'walk-off' claim
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has claimed that Leeds United should walk off the field when they play Liverpool on Monday night amid ongoing controversy over plans to form a new European Super League.
The Reds are one of six clubs – along with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal – who confirmed on Sunday that they are set to become founding members of a new competition that would see them face a selection of the continent’s biggest sides on a weekly basis.
Neville made his feelings towards the plan very clear during his co-commentary of Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Burnley this weekend.
Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “I am a Manchester United fan and have been for 40 years but I am disgusted, absolutely disgusted.
"I am disgusted by Manchester United and Liverpool the most.
“Liverpool, they pretend (with) ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ (they are) the people’s club, the fans’ club.
“Manchester United – 100 years, born out of workers. And they are breaking away into a league without competition, that they can’t be relegated from?
“It is an absolutely disgrace. Honestly, we have to wrestle back power in this country from the clubs at the top of this league, and that includes my club.”
Liverpool are in action live on Sky against Leeds on Monday night, and the former England full-back continued his offensive against the so-called ‘Big Six’ by arguing that the Whites should walk-off the field.
Writing on his personal Twitter account, Neville said “Leeds players should walk to the side of the pitch and just let them keep scoring!
"They don’t want competition...”
