Man Utd News: Gary Neville answers to Jeff Stelling’s comment about Salford fans

Man UTD

Man Utd News – After the presenter of Soccer Saturday made negative comments about Salford City’s fan turnout, Gary Neville fired back at Jeff Stelling. Stelling, 68 years old, is a supporter of Hartlepool, which was defeated by Salford, 2-0, on Tuesday evening. Salford is a club that is co-owned by Neville, along with his former Manchester United teammates David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes. Stelling witnessed his team lose.

As a result of the game’s outcome, Hartlepool is now three points behind the safety zone in League Two with three matches yet to play. However, Salford currently holds the fourth and final slot in the playoffs. They are currently ahead of Mansfield in the standings thanks to a better goal differential and the fact that they have played one more game. However, Stelling was quick to shift his attention to the size of the audience for the match.

The game drew in a total of 2,139 spectators to the Peninsula Stadium, a number that included several hundred supporters of the opposing team. And the host of Soccer Saturday was quick to criticize Salford for their attendance figure, pointing out that Bradford often has 20,000 fans in attendance, which is a number that well exceeds that of the team headquartered in Greater Manchester.

Speaking on Twitter, he said: “Did someone forget to tell fans of @SalfordCityFC there was a game? 2,139 – 500 of those from @Official_HUFC [Hartlepool United]! “Some may say they are an artificially created club. After all @officialbantams {Bradford City] get 20000. “And yes I know we will probably get relegated, but support your team ffs!”

Neville swiftly leapt to his club’s defence as he responded to Stelling. He replied: “We’re quite proud to have got to a crowd of 2,139 from an average of 120 and 40 season ticket holders 7/8 years ago in the Evo-Stik North! “Hope the head isn’t too woolly when you get up 🍺🍷😂.”

Between the years 2015 and 2019, Salford was promoted four times during five seasons. They have finished in 11th, 8th, and 10th position in League Two thus far, with the 2022/23 season marking their fourth consecutive season in the division. However, they have moved up into the play-off places and are currently competing for a position in the third tier.
