Jordan hits out at Neville and Ferdinand over independent regulator proposals


Simon Jordan has taken aim at the likes of Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand after they launched a parliamentary petition calling for an independent regulator in English football.

An open letter has been written as the fallout continues from the European Super League debacle.

Neville was vocal on Sky Sports about his opinion of the breakaway competition.

He has also taken issue with Project Big Picture as well as Manchester United’s ownership under the Glazers.

Several pundits have not been shy in discussing the financial model of English football as well as the way certain clubs are run.

But Jordan believes the individuals involved are picking and choosing how and when they get involved.

He said on TalkSport : “When people like Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand sign up to something – are they signing up to salary caps and wages controls because I bet they are not.

“That is part and parcel of what is needed to reset the whole landscape of football.

“They will pick and choose. Are they talking about guys coming in and owning football clubs that they are involved in.

He then went on to say: “If you want to protect the other 72 clubs and those below them change the distribution model. How you going to do that?

“You have to get the broadcasters on board, you have to get Premier League on board.

“You have to get the Premier League to say they’re turkeys voting for Xmas!

“Unless you’e going to break that particular egg and make a different omelette, you’re going to have the same situation.”

Neville who, as well as being a pundit, is a part-owner of League Two side Salford City.

The Class of 92 as well as Peter Lim have funded their rise through the non-league and Jordan has previously accused him of being a hypocrite.

He said earlier this month: “Neville sits there advocating independent regulation – why? Because he’s one of the intellectual capitals behind independent regulation with David Bernstein and he wants a seat at the top table.

“The hypocrisy of his ownership of Salford when he’s got a billionaire owner in there who is funding Salford who are, to my mind, losing money left right and centre, who probably breached financial fair play, and all of this is being utilised by Gary Neville to advise a soap box wrapped in hypocrisy.”
