Neville has ‘sympathy’ for City
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has revealed he has “sympathy” for rivals Manchester City.
On Monday, the Premier League charged the Etihad outfit with 115 financial breaches of financial rules between 2009 and 2018.
And Neville said on The Overlap Live Fan Debate: “On the financial side, I do have some sympathy for Manchester City.
“If you look at what Jack Walker did in 1992, 1993, 1994, that was financial doping but it was deemed to be something completely different because he was a local businessman who pumped money into his club.
“I’m not a fan of the Financial Fair Play Regulations. It means you’ll always have the same clubs at the very top, because their revenues are higher and you’ll always have the lower clubs lower down, because they can’t compete with the revenue.
“We do need sustainability and cost controls in football, and this is one of the biggest decisions in the next 12 to 18 months.”
