Gary Neville has endured a mixed return to punditry since his brief stint as a La Liga manager. Initially, the former Manchester United player appeared reserved but slowly, Neville has grown back to regain the form that saw him revolutionise the industry.
Yesterday, while watching a truly awful Chelsea performance, Neville was highly critical of Antonio Conte's side as they succumbed to a 1-0 loss against Manchester City. Conte fired back by labeling the criticism 'stupid' and tonight Neville has responded.
Neville's response is entirely balanced and an analytical breakdown of where his criticism came from. It is obvious that he takes great care with the words he uses.
Conte will be aware of the points Neville makes and will look to put them right as he approaches a crucial period of games that sees clashes with Crystal Palace, Barcelona, Leicester City and Tottenham to come.
