Gary Neville has insisted Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have shown four signs of desperation.

It comes after their match against Manchester United was postponed following protests at Old Trafford.

Over 200 supporters broke into the ground and stormed the pitch while many more demonstrated outside and next to the team hotel at Lowry.

There has been a simmering unease with the owners at United with fans not happy with the Glazers.

But it came to a head after news broke that they, along with five other Premier League clubs, were looking to break away and form their own competition called the European Super League.

It has led to huge protests, with today's match proving a pivotal moment after the match against Liverpool was postponed.

The Reds were also included in talks over a European Super League and Neville moved the conversation surrounding the Glazers to FSG.

He said on Sky Sports: “Let’s talk about FSG a little bit. They’ve been part of four things in the past 12 months which are desperate signs, they’re acting desperately behind the scenes.

"They furloughed their players, that is very un-Liverpool-like, they tried to cut their wages behind the scenes, 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.
