Gary Neville hopes Man Utd and co. are ‘hit with £100m fine’ to leave Super League

Gary Neville wants to see Manchester United and the other five clubs involved in the Super League plans to be hit with £100m fines after withdrawing.

Six teams signed up to the breakaway competition on Sunday night, a move that received widespread criticism.

Less than 48 hours later though, amid unrelenting fan protests and anger, all of them publicly stated their plans to withdraw.

Chelsea and Manchester City were the first to signal their intent before the others followed.

He told Sky Sports : “Quite incredible. I think large concern yesterday morning waking up thinking, for me particularly as a United fan, that Joel Glazer had put his name on a statement.

“Which, you think about what they went through in sort of the takeover of United, they withstood a barrage of abuse, it didn’t bother them, they just went through it. And you just thought it was going to be difficult for them to back down.

“They haven’t backed down yet, but the fact that City have obviously enacted the withdrawal procedure and it looks like Chelsea are on the way, it’s done. It’s finished.

“And they’ll have their PR teams, communications teams scrambling around now trying to make this look as lovely as possible in the next 24 hours, working out what the right time is to withdraw from it.

“Perez might have them on a £100million fine. I hope so! I hope Perez has got them on a massive fine to withdraw, the lot of them. And I hope they basically end up eating each other.”
