Gary Neville has defended the pricing of Salford City’s home games.

Neville, a co-owner of Salford City, responded to the criticism from a Twitter user who was unhappy about the fact that it would cost supporters £10 to gain entry to the Peninsula Stadium this weekend.

After ridiculing the pricing, the critical Arsenal fan was met with a brutal response from Neville.

The Sky Sports pundit mocked Arsenal for their performance against defending Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday in response to the claim that Salford are no more than a pub team.

New Gunners boss Unai Emery was widely criticised for how he set up his side for their 2-0 home defeat to City, with former Arsenal captain Tony Adams left feeling “deflated and disappointed” by the match.

“It was the same kind of performance,” Adams said on talkSPORT. “I was a little bit deflated and disappointed.

“Coming from Arsene who always played open attacking football, I really wanted the new manager to come in there and tighten things up.

“For the last ten years now – [we’ve been] leaking goals, soft away from home.

“I wanted him to put his new goalkeeper in, work with his back four, have two screening central midfield players, and keep a clean sheet. It was crying out for it. But I didn’t see that.

“I thought he got a lot of selections wrong. His three best players were his subs [Alexandre Lacazette, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Lucas Torreira]. I don’t know why he didn’t start with them.”
