Everything Gary Neville does nowadays comes under scrutiny.
Now more than ever the former full-back is under the microscope of the public as his post-retirement ventures have seen him become one of the most famous pundits and football club owners in the country.
It must’ve been a tough week for the former England international. He’s seen his beloved Manchester United pick up only one point from a possible six and he’s had to sit by as the fanbase he cares so deeply about hit a new low by racially abusing Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford.

Luckily the Sky Sports pundit has been able to bookend this week by watching one of the greatest cricket matches of all time, and after the conclusion of the third Ashes test he took to Twitter to hit back at some of his critics.
Amazing ? finish to the day after being accused of fuelling racism (for punditry on a football match), in the Glazers pocket (even though I haven’t had a penny for 7 years from the club) , causing Bury to go bust (even though I can’t do anything as owner of another club) ?

Neville stated that Ben Stokes’ heroics provided a great finish to an otherwise hellish day as he’s been unfairly accused of multiple wrongdoings.
Fortunately, this hasn’t gotten to the pundit too much as the Manchester United legend sarcastically stated that it had been the best week of his life.
Realistically, it’s time for fans to get off of Gary Neville’s back. He may be a great pundit, and one of the highest-profile football club owners in the country, but he’s not a divine entity who can solve these issues, nor is he the root cause of any of these problems.
