Roy Keane aims brutal “stuck with you” dig at Gary Neville after Manchester Derby

Former Manchester United teammates Roy Keane and Gary Neville once again locked horns following the Red Devils’ dire 0-0 draw with rivals Manchester City.

The two sides cancelled each other out in a highly disappointing encounter at Old Trafford on Saturday in a result which does little for both side’s title aspirations.

During the post-match analysis on Sky Sports Keane was discussing how much Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should rotate his United team in the coming weeks over the busy festive period.

And while reminiscing about his playing days he couldn’t resist a cheeky dig at Neville.

“I always say, when you’re at a big club, the players pick the team,” he said.

Roy Keane couldn’t resist a sly dig at Gary Neville

“You train (well) all week and the manager may say ‘well, I have to play him’. That was my mindset when I was playing for the club.

“Squad rotation is all good but don’t be rotating me. I’ve got to be playing in the team because hopefully I can bring something to it.”

Keane then motioned towards Neville, saying: “Chop and change some other lads, Gary and one or two others, but leave me to it.”

Neville responded: “I was a stalwart at right-back, I’ll have you know,” to which Keane replied: “You were the only right-back at the club. We were stuck with you!”

Fellow pundit Micah Richards found the exchange highly amusing, and burst out laughing at Keane’s brutal put-down.

Keane has developed something of a reputation for his no-nonsense punditry style, and he was left fuming as United and City players embraced each other following the full time whistle.

Keane appeared to suggest he was a somewhat more important player to Manchester United than Neville was

“At the end of the game the staff and players are hugging, smiling, chatting with each other,” he said.

“Just get down the tunnel, I don’t get it! Everyone wants to be pals with each other, and be popular!

“You’re playing for these clubs, particularly Man Utd, to win football matches! Not to be mates with everybody!”

Gary Neville on European Premier League: ‘Football will eat itself because fans will turn away’

Gary Neville has criticised the timing of talks about a new European Premier League and warned football will “eat itself” and turn fans away from the game.

It emerged on Tuesday that Liverpool and Manchester United have held discussions over the creation of a new £4.6billion tournament, backed by Fifa, that would replace the Champions League.

Reports claim five Premier League clubs have been approached by the people behind the radical plans, with more than a dozen teams from England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France and in talks about becoming founder members of the competition.

It comes a week Premier League clubs rejected Project Big Picture proposals that would have given more power to the ‘Big Six’ in England.

Reacting to the talks of about a new European Premier League, Neville told Sky Sports: “Football is going to eat itself soon, because the fans will turn away. It is getting to the point where the people who love the game are starting to dislike large elements of what they are actually supporting. And that cannot be allowed to happen.

“I am not against pioneering approaches and I am not against even some aspects of Project Big Picture last week.

“However, it is all about timing, it is all about communication and how you would deliver this, and communicate this this message, not just to your fellow members in the Premier League but your fellow members in the football community in this country and also to the fans, the most important people.

“All this does is create unease, the idea that a £5billion package is being put together to set up a new league when lower clubs are trying to stay in existence. It seems to be another wound for football. It does not feel the right time to be talking about this.

“I am for progression of football, new competitions, new formats. But we have got to look after the fabric of the game and what it means to the communities in this country. And every single week at the moment there is a new announcement which takes it away from that.”

Phil Neville says changes since Covid-19 have helped elite women’s football in England

Phil Neville leaves his role as England women’s manager in July 2021

Phil Neville says England’s elite women players should benefit from and “embrace” changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

And the England women’s boss says improvements following football’s suspension in March are noticeable.

“The world has changed and women’s football has changed,” Neville said.

“I want us to embrace it and take the leap forward. If you look at the first three or four games of the season, look at the investment and the coverage of women’s football.

“The players that are now coming to this country and the level of performances I have seen in the first few games of the season are far greater than what I saw before the pandemic.

“They are far more intense, physically, technically and tactically better, and there is more competition.”

No distractions by GB Olympic talk

Neville’s Lionesses travel to face two-time world champions Germany on 27 October, in a game that will be broadcast live on BBC Two (15:00 GMT).

But even though Neville is due to leave his current role in July 2021, he says he will not be distracted by talk of him possibly leading Team GB at the Olympics next summer.

“The planning and scheduling is set in stone for the Olympics,” he added.

“The cancellation this year just put on hold the plan we had. Whether it is me or somebody else there is not much movement on that. My only focus has been on England.”

‘They will want to play in both’

Lucy Bronze is one of 11 Manchester City players in the 28-player England squad for their fixture in Wiesbaden, with Everton represented by Sandy MacIver and Izzy Christiansen.

And Neville says he has not considered making any special provisions to his selections despite those two clubs meeting in the Women’s FA Cup final at Wembley on 1 November.

“If we had had a double header it would have been part of my thinking about the amount of players that had to play in three big games in a short space of time,” Neville said.

“I think if you asked those players like Steph Houghton, Lucy Bronze and those Manchester City players, they would want to play in both.

“I think we have got to the stage where physically and mentally they can play in both. They will have four or five days building to a Cup final on Sunday.”

Lisa Neville to speak; Martin Pakula not aware of departmental concerns over ‘rogue guards’

“My view on that, Madam Chair, is that to me it was quite clear that from March 28 … under the emergency management structure, the Department of Health and Human Services [was] the control agency,” he replied.

“Our department had a role in assisting the Department of Health and Human Services and they had some discrete responsibilities for those logistical type matters that I have referred to.

“I wouldn’t seek to characterise it in any way other than … as I say, there was to my understanding, one department which was in charge, if you like, and had overall responsibility, and my department, whose role was to assist the control agency, which was in this case DHHS.”

He said it would have been preferable if the Health Department, and not his own Jobs Department, had overall responsibility for contracting the work in the hotels.

The Jobs Department was in charge of contracting security guards and cleaners for the hotels.

He said it was his expectation that the Health Department would provide infection prevention advice to the contractors, although the inquiry has heard that this didn’t happen in many cases.

“I agree it would have been preferable for the agency which has overall responsibility to have the contractual management responsibility. I think that would have been better,” Mr Pakula said.

The Minister said he didn’t raise this opinion with anyone towards the end of the program in June.

“And did anyone in your department, or indeed in any other department, raise that with you?” Ms Coate asked.

“No, Madam Chair,” Mr Pakula replied.

“It’s, it’s something that has been the subject of a conversation between me and the secretary of my department in recent times, where he’s expressed the view to me that, you know, in an ideal world that in future it would be better for the agency which is in overall control to hold the contracts, and I agree with that perspective, but it’s not something that was raised with me in earlier times.”

Dutch boss Sarina Wiegman to replace Phil Neville as England coach

Sarina Wiegman is to replace Phil Neville as head coach of the England women’s football team next year, the Football Association (FA) announced on Friday.

The 50-year-old Dutch woman will take charge of the Netherlands in next year’s Olympics before assuming control of England.

The former Dutch international defender will be in charge when England hosts the 2022 Euros, the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand and the following Euros in 2025.

Wiegman was the FA’s preferred choice ahead of reportedly two-time World Cup winning former USA coach Jill Ellis.

Ellis’s second World Cup triumph came at the expense of Wiegman’s Dutch side last year.

“Sarina was our number one choice,” said Sue Campbell, the FA’s director of women’s football.

Wiegman said she was delighted to be taking over a side whose country had been at the forefront of developing women’s football in recent times.

“I’m delighted and honoured to join England Women next year,” Wiegman said in a statement.

“England is the cradle of football and the major developments in women’s football globally over recent years have been led by the FA.

“I’m very much looking forward to contributing my experience and expertise to this ambitious team.”

Under Wiegman, Holland won the 2017 European Championship as hosts.

Wiegman – who in 2001 became the first Dutch footballer to be capped 100 times – says she wants to bow out on a high next year.

“The ride with the Oranje Lionesses has been amazing so far, but we haven’t reached our final destination yet,” she said.

“There are two more goals: qualifying for the Euros in 2022 and challenging at the Olympics next summer.

“That would be a fitting completion for me of everything we’ve strived to achieve in women’s football in my home country.

“I will do my utmost to add another chapter to their remarkable journey before making my next step.”

Neville coached England’s women to fourth place at the 2019 Women’s World Cup but the former Manchester United’s star waned as their form slumped following that.

He announced in April he would be stepping down when his contract expires in July next year.

There is a possibility he could be the Team GB coach at the Olympics in Tokyo next July – postponed from this year due to the coronavirus pandemic – but the FA are not taking any chances as he has indicated he would like to coach a club.

The Games run from 23 July to 8 August.

The FA said it will talk to the other home nations over the post for the Olympics and a decision will be announced in “due course”.

England women: Sarina Wiegman to succeed Phil Neville in September 2021

Sarina Wiegman led the Netherlands to victory in the Women’s Euros in 2017

Netherlands women’s manager Sarina Wiegman will succeed Phil Neville as England’s head coach in September 2021.

The former Netherlands defender has signed a four-year deal, with Neville set to leave the role next summer.

Wiegman, 50, will take charge after overseeing the Netherlands at the postponed Tokyo Olympics in 2021.

“Sarina was our number one choice,” said Baroness Campbell, the Football Association’s director of women’s football.

The FA said a decision on who will take charge of Great Britain at the Olympics in Japan will be announced “in due course”.

Neville is under contract until July 2021, with the Games due to run from 23 July to 8 August.

“England is the cradle of football and I’m very much looking forward to contributing my experience and expertise to this ambitious team,” said Wiegman.

Wiegman’s first major tournament in charge of the Lionesses will be the Women’s Euro 2021 on home soil.

Meet the new boss

Sarina Wiegman was appointed Netherlands head coach in 2017

Wiegman made 104 appearances and was captain of the Netherlands in her playing career.

She joined ADO Den Haag Women as manager in 2007 and first joined the national team coaching set-up as assistant in 2014.

She was named head coach in January 2017 and led her side to glory at Euro 2017, including beating Mark Sampson’s England side in the semi-finals.

Under Wiegman, the Netherlands reached third in the world rankings, and she was named Fifa coach of the year in 2017.

“The ride with the Oranje Lionesses has been amazing so far, but we haven’t reached our final destination yet,” she added.

“I am extremely excited by the prospect of leading England women in the future.

“For now, I am 100% focused on Oranje. I will do my utmost to add another chapter to their remarkable journey before making my next step.”

‘A proven winner’ – what they said

Mark Bullingham, FA’s chief executive: “Sarina was the outstanding candidate from a very strong field.

“She is a proven winner and we are confident she can take England to the next level, giving us the best possible opportunity of achieving our ambition to win a major tournament.”

Baroness Campbell: “It speaks volumes for the progress of England women over recent years and the bold ambitions we have for the future that we had so many world-class candidates apply for the role.

“Sarina is the perfect cultural fit for us, which is crucially important in building a winning team.

“Her technical expertise, leadership skills and winning mentality is hugely impressive.”
