'Hideous' Gary Neville absolutely savages West Ham chief Karren Brady over 'self interest' regarding football regulation

‘Hideous’ was the word used by Gary Neville as he absolutely savaged West Ham chief Karren Brady over ‘self interest’ regarding football regulation.

Neville is not shy in airing his views on all matters whether it be politics or football.

And West Ham vice-chairman Brady is the same.

Both pundit Neville and Baroness Brady have very different political allegiances and leanings as well as a number of extra-curricular activities outside their main roles with Sky and West Ham respectively.

Neville has been campaigning for an independent regulator to be brought into football which would have power to sanction clubs – including West Ham – if they break financial and other rules.

The government says it will establish an independent regulator in football after endorsing recommendations made in the fan-led review into the men’s game.

UEFA, the Premier League and the FA currently regulate the football West Ham are involved in. And the Premier League has said it “recognises and accepts the case for reform” but that a regulator “is not necessary”.

A new owners’ test will be introduced and legislation will give fans more say in the running of the game.

Brady and her bosses at West Ham, co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, have not always been the most popular with fans.

And now she has rubbed Neville up the wrong way too it seems.

‘Hideous’ is the word Neville used as he absolutely savaged West Ham chief Brady over ‘self interest’ regarding football regulation.

Brady has hit out at the independent regulator plans in her latest column with The Sun.

And that has not gone down with Neville, who has responded with a tirade on Twitter.

“If you want to read the most hideous of articles then please read the below from Karen Brady!” Neville said on Twitter.

“She suggest’s a new independent regulator is a “Labour Party idea”.

“The Fan Led Review was a Conservative Manifesto pledge and led by a Conservative MP!

“Self interest, lies and greed!”

It will be interesting to see if Brady responds.

Perhaps a televised debate on Sky Sports would be the best way to approach this rather than an ugly back and forth on social media which does neither Neville, Brady or West Ham any good.
