Just what is it with Gary Neville?
For a senior pro who should know better he dosen’t half get involved in some stupid incidents. I’m sure both the FA and Greater Manchester Police are delighted with his latest contribution in the art of trying to blow the lid off a potential tinder box.
Does Neville think sucking up to Ferguson in this manner will get him a new contract?
Not to say that Carlos Tevez isn’t playing his part in proceedings. He didn’t really need to go on Argentine radio and say what he did. Surely a dignified silence, letting his football do the talking (which it did) would have been the better option.
Instead the Police and the FA are bracing themselves for what was already a potentially explosive encounter on Wednesday night, with the intensity further cranked up due to the actions of these pair of idiots.
At least an element of common sense has emerged with Roberto Mancini telling Tevez to put an end to it, Alex Ferguson carried out his usual services to the ‘good of football on the whole’ by opting to not give a shit.
Gary Neville Idiot
Looking at the bigger picture from Neville’s point of view. Was it really that wise to wind up Tevez in this manner on the eve of a big match?
Will the fans thank him for this? I doubt it.
He was warned about his future conduct as recently as last September over the way he celebrated in the league game against City, and was also guilty of a similar incident in 2006 in front of Liverpool fans.
One thing he does have in common with his manager, is that both seem to be immune from FA punishment.
