Neville is co-owner of National League side Salford City, alongside many others of United’s famous Class of 92. Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt are also all involved with the club, who were promoted to non-league’s top tier last season.

This Saturday, they host Chesterfield with Salford’s adult ticket price standing at £10.

That’s one of the cheapest ticket prices in the National League, but that didn’t stop one fan venting displeasure at the cost, who took on social media and said that amount for a so called National League side is very high.

A twitter user going by the name of Anthony D tweeted to Neville: “ffs: £10 to watch a pub team? Wtf.”

Gary Neville was quick to respond to the user and noting him as an Arsenal fan, he tweeted back. He wrote, “£70 to watch your pub team v city last Sunday.”

Arsenal were outplayed by Manchester City in the opening game of their Premier League campaign, and Neville was quick to mention that and take a dig at Arsenal. Also the Gunners have one of the highest ticket prices int he Premier League, which didn’t get any lower this season.

Another Pundit and former Liverpool player Steve Mcmahon criticized Unai Emery for his play from the back line tactics and mentioned that the implementaion was wrong while the timing of the tactic was wrong as well.
