Gary Neville savages Arsenal and Spurs over European Super League inclusion with San Marino comment

Gary Neville, speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show, has revealed that he can’t get his head around Arsenal and Tottenham’s inclusion in the proposed European Super League.

While the European Super League as a concept is dangerous, Americanised, garbage, which threatens the game we all love, there’s some teams’ inclusions in the proposed lineup which you can understand.

The likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool – the biggest clubs in the world who boast the best teams in the world, can all be justifiably included in a proposed breakaway of Europe’s elite.

Tottenham and Arsenal, however, not so much. Just how they’ve managed to have their names included in the discussions is quite remarkable.

With Spurs sitting 7th and Arsenal 9th, their La Liga equivalents are Real Sociedad and Levante. Their Italian equivalents are AS Roma (granted, a big club, if underperforming) and Verona. Where were their invitations?

The delusions of the North London duo to have such a skewed view of self-importance are everything that’s wrong with this concept, and Gary Neville agrees.

Speaking on the matter on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football programme, Neville dropped an absolute beauty of a line, “I’d rather watch the champions of San Marino than them two, they’re a joke to watch.”

    Good old Gaza.
    Seriously backtracking after Klopp called him out for disrespecting Liverpool FC last night…going on to say how all football fans should put their allegiances aside and come together…and then calling Spurs & Arsenal a Joke. Nice bit of diplomacy there!!

    The Arsenal might be going through a dodgy period at the minute but they are bigger than Spurs, Man City and Chelsea put together. That being said, I wish we hadnt been invited to join this crap in the first place. A total disgrace but nothing surprises me anymore. The game sold its soul years ago.

    As a Gooner against the Super league, Garry Neville is not helping cause, by slagging off the teams involved. It is the owners not the supporters, who should be criticised!!

      agreed-I’m a Spurs fan. It’s not the clubs-it’s the owners. The only reason Spurs have been invited is money. They have it. Teams like Leicester who are better than us at present haven’t got the financial clout. Supported Spurs since 1963 and this move will finish it for me.

  4. Sean Vassallo says:

    Just like Carragher said it’s the owners they should be attacking not the clubs or players.Apart from the fact that the premier league was the one who let all the sugar daddies spend all they want without any financial checking just as long as great players were coming to England and making the premier league great and clubs like Arsenal who did it the right way got slandered for it.Hypocrisy at it’s finest.
