Fans of Everton have been split down the middle following an interview with Gary Neville posted to the club’s Twitter account.

The video came from a link between the Toffees and Salford City, whom Neville owns a stake in (per The Guardian), and sponsorship of the two clubs by etoro (per Finance Magnates).

During the video, the former Manchester United full-back discusses the atmosphere at Goodison Park and how good our supporters make it.

However, some Toffees supporters felt that it was strange to see someone who is not connected with the club in any way, bar the sponsorship, talking about the club on the official account.

In the video, the 44-year-old from Bury explains how intimidating Goodison Park was to visit as an away player during his days with the Red Devils (per Everton).

While some found it strange, other supporters found it refreshing to hear someone unassociated with the club discuss how good our atmosphere is for a change.

What do we think?

While what Neville says about Everton is very complimentary, it is also somewhat baffling to see the legend of one club waxing lyrical about the fanbase of ours, whilst at the stadium of another.
