Sky Sports fans threaten to rip up subscriptions over Man Utd legend Neville

Sky Sports viewers are threatening to cancel their subscriptions over the signing of Manchester United legend Gary Neville.

The Mirror says Sky Sports was hit with a backlash yesterday after Neville was unveiled as the its new ­football pundit – with ­viewers ­threatening to cancel their ­subscriptions in protest.

Manchester United ­legend Neville, who ­revelled in his reputation as one of the most hated men in football, will ­become one of Sky Sports’ frontline commentators on Premier League and ­European games.

Jamie Redknapp, 37, will join Neville, 36, in replacing Andy Gray and Richard Keys.

But fans are furious at the appointment of “Mr Man United”. Many dubbed him “boring” and feared he would not be able to put aside his love for United.
