Video: Jack Wilshere Trolls a Young Gary Neville’s Defending on Instagram

Jack Wilshere has taken a little bit of a pop at Gary Neville by criticising the now-retired right-back’s defending in a clip from 20 years ago.

Wilshere and Neville have worked together closely in the English national set-up, so they’ll definitely know each other pretty well, and we’re willing to go out on a limb and suggest that it’s usually Neville handing out the pointers.

But Wilshere got his own back today as he watched highlights of a classic Manchester United vs Liverpool match from the comfort of his couch.

In the game, a 20-year-old Neville was thrown to one side by a 20-year-old Fowler, who proceeded to slam the ball past a helpless and shocked Peter Schmeichel.

The game that day ended in a draw, but as Wilshere says, United could’ve had all three points if Neville had just been a touch stronger:

To be fair, Gary, if you’re going to dis it out, you need to know how to take it too!

Some finish from Fowler, as well!
