United defender Gary Neville has launched an attack at the Football Association for not 'looking after our own' as they decided to uphold the UEFA ban on both Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes.
The pair will miss games against Watford, Charlton and Tottenham with their bans beginning on the 23rd August for their respective red cards during the 'friendly' against Porto earlier this month.
Speaking to the clubs own TV channel Neville said: 'It is a shocking decision, absolutely shocking.
'But what do you expect? I certainly didn't expect anything else. We don't look after our own in this country.'
Hmm, strange...it's shocking, yet it was the only thing he expected. It certainly brings up an interesting question, should the red cards in friendly matches count for a league season. Sorry Wayne/Paul, no matter what club and what player it is, even my own. If you`re going to be done for violent conduct, you`re going to get a ban. This leads to another question, was Rooney's sending off right?
The truth may just be out there kids!
