Tottenham fans had a bone to pick with Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville and commentator Martin Tyler, after the game against Everton on Sunday. The pair were commentating on the game which saw Tottenham thrash the Merseysiders 6-2 at Goodison Park.
Much to Spurs fans’ consternation, Neville and Tyler kept talking about rumors linking Pochettino to the Manchester United job rather than focusing their analysis on the game at hand.
This really angered Spurs fans as not only were Tottenham sending out a statement to the rest of the division with their performance, but they also sit 13 points ahead of Manchester United in the Premier League table.
Thus, many Spurs fans made their displeasure known by complaining on social media about the disrespect Neville, in particular, showed towards Tottenham. It seems those fans now have company in Spurs legend Osvaldo Ardiles who also took to Twitter to blast the ‘unprofessionalism’ Neville and Tyler displayed while commentating on the game.
Check out Ossie’s tweet below:
Very disappointing to see two professionals, Tyler and Neville, not doing what they should: Commentating about the game, and the game only. NOT about rumours. Very disrespectful to Man Utd, his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and especially to MP and @SpursOfficial players and fans

Spurs fans will certainly be pleased that Spurs legends like Graham Roberts and Ossie Ardiles are coming to the club’s defense at a time when former players like Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher seem determined to get Pochettino to Manchester United.
