Neville takes issue with the Sun
Everton and Watford was this week’s Monday Night Football game.
As always, Gary Neville joined Jamie Carragher to discuss the weeks’ football and the build-up to the Everton game.
The following morning, The Sun would publish a story about Neville commenting on Manchester United forward, Romelu Lukaku’s weight.
At the time for writing, the story on Lukaku’s weight is The Sun’s top story on their main football page and is the first thing you see when you click the football tab.
While Neville did comment on Lukaku’s weight this season, the former Man United star has taken issue with The Sun making that story their top headline.
On Tuesday morning Neville posted a picture of The Sun’s article with the caption:
“Didn’t see that as the top story from last nights show. Did you?”

Raheem Sterling speaks out
Neville is, of course, referring to the fact that on MNF, Neville and Carragher’s main and far more serious story was the discussion of the alleged racial abuse of Man City’s Raheem Sterling.
Manchester City played Chelsea on Saturday and Sterling was allegedly racially abused by some Chelsea fans during the game.
Sterling posted this message on Instagram after the incident.

However, The Sun chose not to cover what Neville had to say about Sterling. They instead focused on Neville’s Lukaku comments.
