Gary Neville slams 'desperate' FSG after Manchester United fan protests Gary Neville slammed Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group in the build-up to their postponed match against Manchester United on Sunday. The Premier League clash at Old Trafford has been dominated by protests from Man United fans outside the stadium, with several hundred making their way onto the pitch. Fans were protesting against the club’s owners, the Glazer family, in the aftermath of the European Super League debacle. Liverpool, along with Man United, originally agreed to take part in the proposed new competition, before withdrawing less than 48 hours later. While the majority of the talk from Sky Sports pundits Neville, Jamie Carragher, Roy Keane, Graeme Souness and Micah Richards was aimed at Man United, Neville took a break to put some of the focus on Liverpool’s owners too. “Let’s talk about FSG a little bit,” said Neville. “They’ve been part of four things in the past 12 months which are desperate signs, they’re acting desperately behind the scenes. “They [made the initial decision to furlough staff], that is very un-Liverpool-like, they’ve gone for the Project Big Picture and tried to change the 14 and six rule in English football. “Now, along with the Glazers, they’ve tried to create a Super League. These are desperate actions from the owners of Liverpool Football Club. “I think they’re struggling at the moment, through Covid obviously, economic issues like loads of businesses have all around the world, but they’re acting desperately."

He wrote: When the smoke has cleared and the shock has subsided, perhaps this postponement will be viewed as a watershed moment in English football? To achieve the cancellation of what is the most watched fixture in world football is a feather in the cap of the fans who, for so long, have been treated as nothing but an afterthought. An afterthought from the TV companies that the schedule the games and from absent owners, who all too often ignore them completely. But Manchester United supporters simply could not be ignored any longer. Fans still matter, even when the game has been able to exist without them for nearly a year. Those who have had their faces pressed up to the glass all season as football has been forced to turn into a TV show only finally found themselves back inside one of the grand old stadiums of English football. But this was no triumphant return. It was one that was borne out of an anger that could no longer have a lid kept on it.

Because this protest - one that was planned after the Super League straw had broken the camel's back - transcended traditional tribalism... Fenway Sports Group will have been watching on from the other side of the Atlantic with a little unease, too. FSG's approval rating with the Reds' fans is nowhere near as destitute as the Glazers' is with United's. But given how flags calling for their removal were attached to the railings of Anfield last week, there might now be some awkward shuffling in the seats of the Boston boardrooms after seeing what can happen when disenfranchised fans mobilise. FSG, despite their mistakes, are still some way from an Anfield repeat, but Sunday's incident was a message to the owners of every club in the land.

. All of them. In the wake of the Super League collapse, politicians and fan groups have sounded the drum for greater representation at boardroom level and legislation to ensure that any and all breakaway plots are outlawed in future. Sunday's shocking scenes - the good, the bad and the ugly - simply must be seen as a step towards that.

The Egypt international has a contract until the summer of 2023 with the Reds, and recently said he wants to stay and continue to break records with Jurgen Klopp’s side. But speaking in December of last year, Salah also sounded open to the potential of playing in La Liga one day when asked about the prospect by a Spanish newspaper. That theme then continued during a recent interview with another Spanish publication, Marca, before his side’s Champions League tie with Real Madrid. But speaking ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday, Salah explained he is yet to hold contract talks with the Anfield club. “No one is talking to me about anything, I can’t say much about that, " he said when asked about a contact extension. "No one at the club talked to me about anything, so I don’t know."

But the Reds boss admits the midfielder is among several players who have seen first-team opportunities "hurt" by the need for stability given continued injury issues in defence. "A lot of things in this year have been really tricky," said the Reds manager. "We've had to change the team often, then at the moment we have to go for stability, which is what we need right now. "Look at United. I think their defence has played around 20 games together, and that means they can make changes elsewhere because they have a proper basis. "We have never had that. On top of that, making two or three changes in midfield just doesn't work out in football. "People say 'try it', and you can try but only if you are sure it could nearly work out." Klopp added: "You need stability in a football team. Other teams are too good to allow you to make eight or nine changes. "That has hurt a few of our players this year. Naby was injured and it took a while for him to come back. "He trains really well, I have to say, like a lot of other players he looks really well in training but this year we need stability. "We will make changes from time to time, definitely, but it's not like we can change seven, eight, nine players and expect to win a game. "But the long-term future of Naby Keita from my point of view is here, yes."

Steven Gerrard and Ryan Kent could be about to make Liverpool millions Former Liverpool winger Ryan Kent is enjoying a memorable season at Rangers and the Reds could be about to benefit. Boasting 12 goals from 50 appearances, he has reached new levels this season for Steven Gerrard's side as they won a first league title since 2011 and played a leading role in Rangers' 4-1 victory over Celtic on Sunday. Such form continues to see him linked with a return to the Premier League and this could be good news for Liverpool. As part of the deal that took Kent to Rangers, the Reds received £6.5m upfront, with a further £1m possible in achievable bonuses, while they also negotiated a 20% sell-on clause with club bosses confident the winger would return to the Premier League one day. It appears Liverpool's prediction could be about to come true this summer. Interest from Leeds United has never gone away with Gerrard confirming Marcelo Bielsa's side had a bid for the winger rejected last summer. Meanwhile, recent reports suggest Leeds are again revisiting that interest, plotting a £15m bid, though Kent remained a coy about a possible summer exit when speaking before Rangers' most-recent victory over Celtic. "It's just about playing in the now," he told Sky Sports. "It's nice to be linked with other big clubs, but you've got to understand your duty to where you are. "As long as I'm at Rangers, I'll give 100 per cent to the club. "I love this place, it's done so much for me, so as long as I'm here, my mind is solely focused on Rangers." Whether Kent remains at Rangers this summer or not remains to be seen, with the possibility of Champions League football next season awaiting at Ibrox, but the Gers are set to make a healthy profit when he does decide to leave the club. And whenever that day may be, Liverpool are guaranteed to profit as a result thanks to their constant faith in the winger's talents despite him failing to make the breakthrough at Anfield.
