Gary Neville has harshly criticised the statement released by Manchester United after their withdrawal from the proposed European Super League.

Manchester United, alongside the other 'big six' clubs have pulled out of the new European Super League after the massive backlash that the competition has received after its announcement.

United were one of the leading clubs out of the 12 that were committed to joining the breakaway competition, with Joel Glazer, United's Co-Chairman, being named as Vice-Chairman of the competition.

Gary Neville was extremely vocal about the situation, stating his opposition to the competition on numerous occasions, and he was shocked by the manner of the way that Manchester United announced their exit from the competition.

Neville said "I've read this 3-4 times now," adding that it is "Quite possibly the worst communication I've ever seen in my life!"

The statement released by United read "Manchester United will not be participating in the European Super League."

"We have listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders."

"We remain committed to working with others across the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game."

This three-sentence statement contrasts with the detailed apologies that the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur released.

Prior to the release of the official statement, Neville claimed "It's absolutely incredible."

"There was large concern yesterday morning as a Manchester United fan thinking Joel Glazer put his name on a statement - you thought it’s going to be difficult to back down."

"But City have enacted withdrawal proceedings and Chelsea are doing the same. It’s gone, done!"
