People Are Confused About What Phil Neville Has Said About Xherdan Shaqiri
Xherdan Shaqiri is Switzerland's best player but Phil Neville doesn't rate him. Even calling the winger a disgrace following his season with Stoke City.
Switzerland are pinning their hopes on Shaqiri to steer their side to the World Cup quarter-finals.
And prior to kick-off against Sweden, Neville sounded off on the diminutive wizard by hollering some disparaging words.
"Shaqiri was a disgrace for Stoke, last season," he said on BBC.
That's despite Shaqiri weighing in with the most goals for the club in the 2017/18 Premier League campaign, while only one player created more goals than him.
But still a disgrace according to Neville. Strange assessment, Phil.
Naturally, social media went into overdrive:

Shaqiri at Stoke last season: first for goals, shots, crosses, passes received.
Second for assists, passes completed.

"Shaqiri was a disgrace for Stoke last season"
For anybody unaware, he was our top scorer and got more assists than anybody else.
Disgraces = Jese, Wimmer, Berahino- Josh (@SCFCJosh96) July 3, 2018
And for the record, people like Adam and Fletcher were closer to being a 'disgrace' than shaqiri could ever be.
I detest Phil Neville so much. Slagging Shaqiri off like he watched him every week last season. Such a prick :rage: :punch: he always talks so much crap unlike his brother Gary who I quite like as a football pundit.- Wayne Thomas (Tommo) (@WTommoSCFC) July 3, 2018
