The former Red Devils defender got involved in a hilarious exchange with Gunners’ supporters over the weekend after his former side were defeated 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium. A tweet appeared from one fan account saying: “Like this tweet if you would sign a petition to have @GNev2 banned from commentating on Arsenal games.”
Neville then responded by claiming that he would be tempted to join in with the petition but disputed the fact that he was being biassed with his commentary. In a quote-tweet, Neville wrote: “I will sign it! Thought I was fair yesterday [Sunday] as well,” alongside a crying laughing emoji.
His punditry partner Jamie Carragher has now given his take on the petition and advised Arsenal fans to keep sending criticism Neville’s way. Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, he said: “Keep going at him, Arsenal fans!
“You’re really getting to him on social media. Keep going at him.”
Neville looked set to endure the wrath of Arsenal fans once more during an earlier chat with Carragher after the two were asked to give their predictions for the second-half of the 2022/23 Premier League season. The Red Devils’ icon claimed that Mikel Arteta would be his manager of the season despite predicting the Gunners to fall out of contention for the title throughout the remainder of the campaign.
“Third, second or first… I would say that is still a great season,” Neville added. “I know Arsenal fans from this position and maybe even Mikel Arteta would say that would be disappointing – but it would be a great season. It would be.”
