Gary Neville has gone on to ramp up his former club Manchester United by breaking into the brief and abrupt statement issued Tuesday night after the doomed Super League project.
Neville took to social media on Wednesday morning to berate United’s response, labeling it as “Possibly the worst communication I’ve ever seen in my life!”
The United icon said he had read the statement ‘3-4 times’ and could not break free from the way the Premier League giants downplayed the situation.

MANCHESTER UNITED STATEMENT
Manchester United does not participate in the European Super League.
We have listened carefully to the response from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders.
We remain committed to working with others in the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game.
United’s meager 52-word statement simply read: ‘Manchester United are not in the European Super League.
‘We have listened carefully to the response from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders.
“We remain committed to working with others in the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game.”
Unlike Arsenal, United did not appeal to their fan base or apologize in any way.

After an initial silence, John Henry has apologized for the Super League debacle in Liverpool
On Tuesday night, Liverpool and their Fenway Sports Group owners saw a similar approach with a short 47-word statement, though owner John W Henry made a crude apology on video to supporters later on Wednesday morning.
Henry, who was reportedly one of the main drivers behind the entire European Super League venture, told Liverpool fans: ‘It goes without saying, but it must be said that the proposed project would never last without the support of the fans . No one ever thought otherwise in England.
During these 48 hours you were very clear that it was not going to last. We heard you. I heard you. ‘
United and the Glazer hierarchy are still silent on the subject of apologies, which will only further stir up unrest among the fan base.
The anger has continued to boil on social media, with United fans around the world outraged that no further statements or regrets have been made.
A disillusioned fan simply responded on Twitter: ‘No apology, explanation, remorse whatever. Ashamed of being a @ ManUtd fan now. ‘
Another added, addressing Neville directly, “Drag them Gary. Enough is enough, even Henry apologized. Our owners show no regrets. As you said, the trunk is cut and now it’s time for the roots. ‘
In full agreement with Neville, another added, “Good Gary said. No apologies, no remorse and they just keep on treating the fans with great disdain. ‘

Many now believe it is too late for United to follow suit, simply apologizing hours after their fellow potential defectors have desperately tried to regain supporters’ approval.
The club has already felt the first victim of the Super League mess after it was announced that CEO Ed Woodward would be stepping down from his role at Old Trafford.
Woodward was a key figure in fiercely controversial plans for the new escape competition, with his ties to US investment bank JP Morgan helping secure the £ 4.3 billion in funding.
Woodward confirmed his decision Tuesday night, saying: ‘I am extremely proud to have served United and it has been an honor to work for the world’s largest football club for the past 16 years.

The club is well positioned for the future and it will be difficult to walk away at the end of the year.
‘I will cherish the memories of my time at Old Trafford, when we won the Europa League, the FA Cup and the EFL Cup. I am proud of the regeneration of club culture and our return to the Manchester United way of playing.
‘We have invested over £ 1 billion in the squad during my time here and I am delighted with the progress the players have made under the astute leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching team over the past two years.’
