Fans have been left in stitches this week at how Gary Neville ends MNF (Monday Night Football) after his row with Jurgen Klopp.
The Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Sky Sports pundit started a slanging match with each other following the announcement of a European Super League.
Liverpool are one of the founding members of the breakaway league which was announced officially late on Sunday night and Manchester United legend Neville has given strong criticism against both his former side, as well as the Reds and the other English clubs involved, in the last 24 hours.
Neville questioned Liverpool’s ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ motto following the decision to sign up for the league, however Klopp hit back at the Sky Sports pundit after the 1-1 Premier League draw with Leeds at Elland Road, saying he should not be allowed to talk about the club’s anthem.
“I take the criticism for everything,” Klopp said.
“I take it if we don’t play well, I feel responsible for these kinds of things and the players feel the same.
“But this we have nothing to do with to be honest, and now people write articles about what they should do with us as a club.
“When we came here, the supporters were shouting at us. When we had a walk today, people were shouting at us in the city.
“You have to be a little bit careful, we are people as well and we know since yesterday just like you. It’s an emotional situation.
“Gary Neville talks about ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, that should be forbidden to be honest. We have a lot of rights to sing that anthem and it’s our anthem, not his anthem. He doesn’t understand it anyway so I really don’t want these things because it’s not fair.
“All the talk is around and I don’t like it as well, but I don’t talk about other clubs like this. We can be emotional but I wish Gary Neville would be in a hot seat somewhere, not where the most money is.
“Whether it’s at Man United where the most money is, Sky where the most money is. Don’t forget that we have nothing to do with it.
“We are in the same situation as you all, we got information and we still had to play football and you deal with us already like this. That’s really not OK.”
Following the interview, Neville was asked if his criticism of Liverpool was unfair.
He responded: “Why? Why is it not fair?
“I’ve handed enough insults out to Liverpool over the years. Yesterday was nothing about insulting Liverpool Football Club.
“I don’t know why I’m living in his head to be honest with you. I don’t know what spiked him.
“Yesterday was an impassioned plea from me about football and protecting football in this country and my biggest disappointment was with Manchester United and Liverpool.
“I think I’ve equally distributed enough criticism to both clubs in the last 24 hours, so I don’t know what his problem is.”
Neville hit back at Klopp’s claim that he is always “where the most money is”.
“He talks about hotseat, I had a 25 year career at Manchester United, 11 years at Sky and I worked hard for that. I’ve not been handed it, I’ve not gone where the most money is, I didn’t have choices.
“Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t say every year, ‘Gary do you want to stay here?’ So I have no idea what he’s going on about.
“I employ 600 people in the city, I tried to look after them through a pandemic, is that not a hot enough seat for him?
“He’s done a great job at Liverpool, I’ve got no problem with Jurgen Klopp, I loved his team.
“But the fact of the matter is he’s spiky, he’s been let down by his owners, his owners have thrown him under a bus.
“To be fair, we’re on the same page, we’re actually on the same team, but the fact of the matter his he can’t say what he wants to say and I can, and I accept that.
“The Jurgen Klopp we know, you know and the Liverpool fans know, he hates every single little thing about this more than I do, more than you do, because it goes against every little thing he believes in.
“He’s been let down by his owners and so have those players at Liverpool.”
As the show was coming to an end, Gary Neville had fans in stitches at how he ends MNF after that row with Jurgen Klopp.
Whilst they showed upcoming games to be shown live on Sky, Nev was heard backing the teams playing against the ‘big six’. Watch the video going viral below…
