Phil Neville today claimed that along with dodgy bum-bags and spicy food, “them foreigners” have brought over a particularly nasty brand of dirtiness to previously pious football pitches over our glorious isle.
Everton captain Neville made his comments after he was on the receiving end of John Mikel Obi’s grotty challenge which earned the him a red card in last night’s Carling Cup semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge.
“I think he went for the ball. It was probably with his studs showing, but foreigners tend to tackle like that. I don’t think it was with any malice, but you cannot do that. That is the type of tackle we want out of our game.”
Agree with Phil and his comments?
