Phil Neville May Play in Blue But He’s Still a Red Really
19 November 09 by Bill
Phil Neville may pull on a blue shirt when he steps out for Everton but the former United utility man is still a Red at heart. Neville is currently back in training following nine weeks out with a knee injury but it looks unlikely he will recover in time for Everton’s visit to Old Trafford this weekend.
Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester ahead of the clash Neville admitted he is disappointed to miss running out at his old stomping ground but insists it is Everton he wants to take the points.
He also revealed how he hated Manchester City growing up and ruled out ever joining the stuttering revolution over at Wastelands.
“Joining City is not something that will ever happen” he insisted. “When you have got red blood you cannot see yourself with blue blood. You go there and they have blue ketchup, it’s just like ‘What are they doing?’.
“I am not being disrespectful to City. I grew up a Red, hating Manchester City. When I go back with Everton I get absolutely slaughtered.
“It makes me laugh in a way because I understand what they are feeling. I think it is fantastic as it makes football special.”
