Gary Neville uses Bill Shankly’s words to shame Liverpool

Gary Neville has attacked Liverpool’s decision to join the Super League on Twitter on Monday morning.

The Man United diehard has latched onto a Bill Shankly quote, in an effort to shame Liverpool’s decision to join this breakaway league.

The Bill Shankly quote reads as follows:

‘The socialism I believe in isn’t really politics. It is a way of living. It is humanity.

‘I believe the only way to live and to be truly successful is by collective effort, with everyone working for each other, everyone helping each other, and everyone having a share of the rewards at the end of the day.

‘That might be asking a lot, but it’s the way I see football and the way I see life.’

John W Henry stays silent

It’s worth noting that Liverpool’s principal owner, John W Henry, has yet to issue a statement on the new Super League.

By contrast, Man United owner, Joel Glazer, has attempted to justify the decision of the Red Devils’ to sign up.

 

More from Gary Neville on the Super League

On Sunday, Gary Neville recorded his latest podcast for Sky Sports.

Neville used the opportunity to hammer home his belief that the 6 Premier League clubs who have agreed to join the Super League must be punished.

After stating his belief that the Super League will never happen as the men behind the project are “bottle merchants.” Neville added:

‘In the midst of a pandemic the proposals that should have been coming forward should have been for the correction of the game, sustainability in the game.

‘That’s what it should have been. More for grass roots football, more for the FA, more to distribute into the football foundation, more distributed down through the leagues. They should be looking after each other and thinking how there is a better a fairer game moving forward. A better and fairer game for all clubs.’
