Gary Neville has hit back at Man City manager Pep Guardiola after press conference comments

Gary Neville has responded to Pep Guardiola after the Manchester City manager called him out in a recent press conference.

At the weekend, Sky Sports’ pundits Jamie Carragher, Micah Richards and Gary Neville accused Guardiola’s side of complacency after their action-packed 3-3 draw against Spurs.

And earlier this week, Guardiola responded by calling out all three pundits. He pointed out Carragher’s failure to win a single league title during his time with Liverpool before laying into Neville and Richards.

“Gary Neville knows how difficult it is, otherwise he would have won four Premier Leagues in the best period of Manchester United,” the Spaniard said.

“But he didn’t do it. Maybe they accuse us of complacency because they felt complacency (at United). Maybe they felt it. This team so far, no chance.”

Guardiola added: “Jamie Carragher didn’t win one (title). Micah Richards didn’t win four Premier Leagues in a row. Never, ever. It’s never happened.

“I don’t have anything to say about the pundits, honestly. It’s not about that (complacency). Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think it’s about complacency.”

Carragher responded to the comments on Wednesday, saying: “I think I’d have probably won one if Liverpool were owned by a nation state, and pushed the rules so far that the PL charged us 115 times.

“I was actually praising Pep’s team after the game on Sunday.”

And now former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has responded with a video of his own. You can see his response in full below:

Neville said: “We’ll start with the fact that the old master Pep has had a go at me and Carra. Me for not winning four in a row. Sorry Pep. Apologies for that.

“And for my friend James from Liverpool for not participating in the Premier League title celebrations at all during his career, which did make me chuckle slightly.

“But the dirty little scouse dog, Carragher, had to go back at Pep, didn’t he? He can’t rise above it and see it as a compliment.

“He says to Pep, that if I’d have been owned by a nation state or had 115 charges against me and pushed the rules, then I would have won a Premier League title.”

Neville added: “Carra, I reckon you would have won a Premier League title, mate, if you hadn’t have kept kicking a ball in the back of your own net.”
