Neville branded ‘childish’ after his ‘cheap shot’ at struggling Man Utd star



Gary Neville has been branded “childish” by former England international Danny Mills as he took a “cheap shot” at Man Utd player Marcus Rashford.

The Red Devils have struggled this season. They have exited both domestic cup competitions and they sit sixth in the Premier League.

Last week they were knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid. The Spaniards won 2-1 on aggregate.

Man Utd were not in action last weekend so some of their players took the opportunity to jet out to attend sporting events.

Rashford was among them as he was spotted out in Dubai in the audience at a boxing event.

The Englishman’s form has dipped this season. After United’s loss against Atletico Madrid, he was involved in an altercation with a supporter.

Neville claimed earlier this week that Rashford and his teammates were “tone deaf” as they should “lay low”.

Mills has hit out at Neville for these comments. He believes the actions of Rashford and co are “quite normal”:

“There’s a huge difference between going to a nightclub at a VIP table with bottles of champagne and sparklers where it looks like you are celebrating than going out for a meal with family or friends or going to a sporting event,” Mills told Football Insider.

“What are you supposed to do? You need some time to decompress, some time to clear your head. Why shouldn’t you go out for a meal?

“Yes, don’t go out celebrating or falling out of nightclubs because that looks like you don’t care.

“If you just want to go out for a meal why wouldn’t you? That’s quite normal.

“I’ve got two sportsmen as sons and if they have a bad day am I going to say ‘Go to your room, you’re not coming out to dinner with us tonight’?

“It’s a bit childish. Does Gary Neville say to his kids after they’ve had a bad day at school ‘Go to your room, you’re not having any dinner’?

“You say ‘Ok, it hasn’t worked. Let’s do what we normally do and talk about it tomorrow’. It doesn’t mean you don’t care and it hasn’t affected you.

“It’s a cheap shot from Gary Neville. Those players all went out and got hammered. It just wasn’t on social media and there weren’t loads of pictures being taken.”
