Manchester United’s great Gary Neville criticizes the Premier League for a “public relations disaster”


Manchester United legend Gary Neville has criticized the Premier League for its approach during the coronavirus pandemic after a few controversial days for Britain’s elite.

On Friday, following a meeting with the EFL, PFA and LMA, the Premier League issued a lengthy statement, which suspended the first flight indefinitely and pledged £ 20 million to the NHS.

£ 125 million was also given to EFL and National League clubs, but this was only an advance payment rather than an increase, which many believe is necessary to combat the loss of funds due to the suspension of the season.

Now, former US captain Neville has denounced the “terrible” approach of the Premier League on social media with a bulleted list of decisions he says have been wrong.

Writing on Twitter, he said, “The Premier League is handling the coronavirus crisis terribly. Slow to lock, tried a last weekend of games.

“Immediately leave a public relations disaster. Turn on the players in public, trying to blind them. No increase in funding for EFL, the National League. All stakeholders dissatisfied with their approach. “

Continuing his criticism, a second tweet added: “Football has too many stakeholders with different interests. They all meet regularly and say they collaborate but when the shit hits the fan, the Premier League has all the power and goes solo!

“It takes place before our eyes. A realignment for all clubs, fans and the match would be welcome. “

It is not yet known when the league will resume in the middle of the COVID-19 situation, with a possible summer restart among the current options.
