Gary Neville plays hilarious prank on brother Phil ahead of Salford vs Leeds clash

The Salford City part-owners were videoed in a cafe just hours before they will watch their team take on Leeds United.

England Women boss Phil and Sky Sports pundit Gary own the League 2 side along several other members of Manchester United’s fabled Class of 92.

The Ammies were taken over by Manchester United legends Phil, Gary, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt in 2014, while David Beckham purchased a 10 per cent share in the club in January this year.

Since the takeover the only way has been up for Salford, and they have won promotion four times in five seasons to go all the way from the Premier League Division North up to League Two.

And the club will make their Carabao Cup debut when they face Leeds in the first round tonight.

The game will be the biggest in the club’s history and they will be hoping to pull of a shock against Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship side.

But it looks like there are no nerves on show just hours ahead of the game after Gary was videoed scalding his brother with a hot spoon while sat having a drink in a cafe.

The short video shows Phil drinking what appears to be hot soup out of a mug while reading his mobile phone.

Then out of shot his brother Gary, sat next to him, sneakily burns him on his left arm with a teaspoon.

Phil, completely unaware, yelps out and has to restrain himself from swearing in front of the camera.

“Aaaaaah, ya fu***,” wails Phil, before correcting himself and saying to Gary, “you stupid”.

The video was posted onto Gary’s Instagram just hours before Salford take on Leeds at their Moor Lane ground.

Leeds have a bitter rivalry with Manchester United and Scholes and Phil, who played multiple times against the Whites throughout their career’s, say they are relishing the tie.

“Where do we go the next five or 10 years? Who knows?” Scholes said.

“I know it’s a long way off, but the target has to be getting to the Premier League at some point.

“We want the big games like Leeds. I don’t think in the whole draw we could have got a bigger or better club, so we’re looking forward to it.”

Phil, who led England Women to the World Cup semi-final this summer, added: “It is a big game. It’s probably the biggest team we’ve ever had or played against at the Peninsula Stadium.

“It’s the type of night we want, it’s the type of team we want to be playing against.”
