Gary Neville has responded to John Terry's claims he deserves an MBE with another scathing putdown of the United Kingdom's current government.
Neville isn't afraid to speak his mind and frequently takes aim at the Conservative Party's conduct and overall handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
He was one of the world's best right-backs in his prime and spent 19 years at Manchester United, while also representing England.
Former Three Lions teammate Terry believes Neville, alongside eight other teammates, said: "Can someone explain why Gary Neville , Phil Neville, Paul Scholes , Ashley Cole, Nicky Butt, Rio Ferdinand, Sol Campbell, Jamie Carragher, Wayne Rooney, have never been honoured for their services to football. We are talking the BEST of the BEST EVER?"
Quite a list of Premier League legends there, all who've won top trophies. What's the verdict then?
I don’t think I’m anywhere near but I’d rather have a most improved player award for a sunday team than an award off this lot 👍 https://t.co/rEUHduZ5GQ— Gary Neville (@GNev2) January 1, 2022
Sky Sports pundit Neville said he feels he doesn't deserve one, before explaining he'd rather be named 'Most Improved' at Sunday League level.
He replied: "I don’t think I’m anywhere near but I’d rather have a most improved player award for a Sunday team than an award off this lot."
Terry then paid tribute to Neville, calling him one of the best of his generation, before bringing up David Beckham's lack of a knighthood once again.
The 41-year-old claimed: "Best right back of our generation Gaz , dominated world football and won everything for Man Utd. "Played at the very top all your career for club and country.
"I’m seeing people being given MBE’s and OBE’s for a flash in the pan.
"While we are at it give Becks his Knighthood."
Terry had previously said former England captain Beckham deserves a knighthood for his services to football as well as charity.
Beckham won six Premier League titles, a Champions League and two FA Cups during career with United and then moved on to Real Madrid.
He played 115 times for England and captained them for six years across three tournaments.
