Liverpool and Man Utd fans troll Gary Neville for howler in Vincent Kompany testimonial | Football | Sport

Liverpool and Manchester United fans took to social media to troll Gary Neville after his error in Vincent Kompany’s testimonial.

The Sky Sports pundit, who is often seen criticising defenders on TV, was at fault for Manchester City’s opening goal.

Neville pressed the ball, leaving acres for Martin Petrov to run in behind and fire past Edwin van der Sar.

The United hero blamed his Sky Sports colleague Jamie Carragher, telling the former Liverpool defender he should have covered him.

Neville was forced off injured mid-way through the first-half after pulling up injured while chasing down Craig Bellamy.

Meanwhile Kompany revealed before the game he wanted to play Leroy Sane on the left wing to embarrass Neville.

However, Sane’s long-term injury ruined Kompany’s plan.

Kompany said: “There are so many old faces, and I want to see who is still in shape and who is not anymore!

“I remember a lot of conversations in the dressing room… ‘What are you going to do when you stop playing?’

“Nigel de Jong is still playing, so I’ll have to wait for another time with him, but I think he was going to go the other way!

“Those you think go one way, they don’t, and the people you think go the other way, they don’t!

“I’m looking forward to seeing whose in shape mainly, and reminiscing about the stories we still remember from the dressing room.

“It’s unfortunate that Leroy Sane is out with a knee injury, because I would have put him on Gary Neville.

“My goal was to put the fastest winger I could find on Gary Neville’s side! Unless he goes and hides at centre-back, we’ll see.”
