‘Get the f*ck away from them’ – Neville in fresh ‘robots’ rant as Man Utd control players on social media

 The ex-Red Devils defender has spoken out on a regular basis this season about the need for Premier League performers to put their own messages across

Gary Neville has urged those looking to control social media activity at Manchester United to “get the f*ck away” from personal accounts and stop trying to turn Premier League performers into “robots”.

It is not the first time that the former Red Devils defender has spoken out on this matter, with the ex-England international disappointed that high-profile figures are not being allowed to put their own messages across.

For him, emotion is being removed from the connection that once bonded those on the field to those in the stands, with too many generic statements being pushed through by teams behind the scenes that dictate and monitor what gets posted in public.
