Neville cold shouldered at Man U following Tevez spat

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb 3 (ANI): Manchester United skipper Gary Neville has been left in the cold at Old Trafford since making an obscene gesture at Carlos Tevez.

Neville was axed from the squad and did not even travel to Arsenal for Sunday's clash.

He escaped FA punishment for the gesture in the Carling Cup semi-final first leg at Eastlands last month, The Sun reports.

The United captain had wound up former team-mate Tevez by saying he agreed with boss Alex Ferguson that the player was not worth the 25 million pounds fee to keep him at Old Trafford.

Tevez responded with both City goals in the 2-1 first-leg win, celebrating in front of Neville, who responded with his gesture.

Ferguson was so angry about the incident being repeated on TV that he even banned the channel involved from Press conferences for showing it.

Neville is set to retire this summer because of injuries and it now looks like his games will be severely limited. (ANI)
