Neville taunts Liver­pool

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

GARY Neville be­lieves Liver­pool de­served to be rel­e­gated to the Europa League this week.

Liver­pool slumped out of the Cham­pi­ons League de­spite winning 1-0 at De­bre­cen af­ter Group E ri­vals Fiorentina beat Lyon.

The United cap­tain, of­ten ag­i­ta­tor-in-chief when it comes to his club’s bit­ter north-west ri­vals, said that Liver­pool’s per­for mances were not good enough.

Neville said: “As a team, you get what you de­serve, don’t you? We are where we are be­cause we de­serve to be there and it’s the same with Liver­pool. We went out our­selves a few years back. They just haven’t per­formed well enough in the Cham­pi­ons League.”

United are the only other English side to have failed to progress from the group stages in the com­pe­ti­tion’s cur­rent for­mat, when they fin­ished be­hind Vil­lar­real, Ben­fica and Lille in 2005. – Daily Mail
