Former Manchester United player turned football pundit, Gary Neville gave a response on Monday to his handshake being snubbed by Cristiano Ronaldo before the team’s victory over West Ham on Sunday.
The 37-year-old Portuguese football star appeared to ignore Neville when he came over to speak to Louis Saha during Sky Sports’ live coverage of the Red Devils’ 1-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.
Neville’s Sky Sports colleagues were quick to mock him with Carragher ‘welcoming him to the club’ after suffering the same fate earlier in the season. Micah Richards then joined in the ribbing, interviewing the United legend and putting the video out for his social media followers.
“How does it feel to be blanked?” Richards asks Neville as he gets into the lift. Both men start laughing as Richards pans the camera over to Keane with a scowl on his face.
All three men chuckle as Richards says Ronaldo is a former teammate of Neville and Keane’s.
But Neville shut down that link, responding: “Yeah, but he doesn’t behave like someone who’s played with me. Or him [Keane] for that matter.”
