Gary Neville may have been one of the most consistent defenders in Premier League history, but his eagle-eyed Sky Sports colleague Geoff Shreeves has found footage of him being embarrassed by David Ginola.
During his playing days, Neville always prided himself on his ability to contain and suppress opposition wingers – a major factor behind his unquestionable success.
However, with Neville having made over 400 appearances for Manchester United in his career, there were bound to be some examples of when he was not only beaten by his man, but completely humiliated.
One such example was dug up by Shreeves this afternoon, with Sky’s touchline reporter asking if Neville had sauce and onions with the hot dog he was sent for by the Frenchman in this clip:

However, some would argue that Neville still had the last laugh…
As despite Ginola’s skill, United still lifted the Premier League title in 1996, with Newcastle finishing seven points off the pace in second spot.
