Gary Neville says Tottenham players should ‘set up direct debit’ to fans

Gary Neville delivered one of the commentary lines of the season as Tottenham were ripped apart early on against Liverpool, suggesting the players set up a direct debit to fans.

After being smashed 6-1 at Newcastle last weekend, the Spurs squad vowed to refund the supporters who made the long trip to the north-east. Spurs were five down after just 21 minutes at St James’ Park and it was a similar story at Anfield, albeit not quite as bad.

Liverpool raced into a 3-0 lead into the first 15 minutes. It was 2-0 after just five minutes after strikes from Curtis Jones and Luis Diaz before Mo Salah chipped home the third from the penalty spot following a rash foul from Eric Dier.

Following the third goal, Sky Sports pundit Neville said: “They [the Spurs fans] were leaving 20 minutes last week, some of them are leaving after 15 this week.”

After Martin Tyler brought up the Newcastle refund offer, Neville added: “I know the Spurs players are on a lot of money but they could end up… They might as well set up a direct debit to the fans.”

The quip was part of a wider critique of the club’s failings under chairman Daniel Levy.

“I didn’t expect this today after what happened in the week against Manchester United [Spurs fought back from two down to draw 2-2],” continued Neville. “I thought it would leave them in a better shape mentally.

“At one point in the season they were third in the league, still in the Champions League, then you’ve got Levy and [Antonio] Conte standing off against each other. He’s [Levy] appointed three confrontational managers on the bounce.

“A few years ago, they were in the Champions League final, second in the league, playing great football, a world-class stadium and training ground. Then, all of a sudden, the appointment of managers, in terms of alignment to the club, has been absolutely shambolic.”
