Manchester United legend Gary Neville revealed he refused to pay £14.95 to watch the club’s 4-1 win against Newcastle on Saturday.
The former United captain who slammed the club for joking about fans not being allowed into St James’ Park prior to kick-off – instead followed the match on Sky Sports News.
Despite refusing to pay £14.95 to watch the game, Neville celebrated our win over the Magpies by posting a selfie of him with a glass of wine.
During the latter stages of the match, the former United defender uploaded the boozy snap, leading Jamie Carragher to ask: “So you paid the PPV? Thought you were against it @GNev2.”
To which Neville commented: “Sky Sports News James.”
He then followed this up by tweeting out a selfie of him watching Sky Sports News, showing United leading Newcastle 3-1, before Marcus Rashford scored in the 96th minute.
But fans have been left unconvinced that Neville did not watch the game, as they pointed out a reflection in his wine glass that appeared to show the match being played.
One eagle-eyed supporter said: “Gary what about the reflection of the game in the glass?”
Another messaged: “Say you stream illegally with your chest.”
A third added: “Gary it’s OK we all searched live football stream.”
