Gary Neville hit by formal grievance over PFA’s rent of recent CEO
Since the end of his season, Gary Neville has been a successful businessman with an interest in a number of sectors.
Football was always his first love, however, and to that end it was no surprise that he was elected chairman of an independent panel to decide who would succeed Gordon Taylor as the new CEO of the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA).
However, it seems that not everyone is happy with this particular appointment. The Daily Mail suggests that a leading candidate for the position, eventually filled by Maheta Molango, filed a formal letter of complaint against Neville.
In a letter from the Daily Mail, the former Man United and England defender is alleged to have acted illegally during the trial.
Given Neville’s stake in Salford City, the letter states that there must be a conflict of interest.

Furthermore, Neville’s membership in the EFL working group on wage caps that was contrary to the interests of the players is cited as another cause of illegal behavior.
It is currently unclear whether the matter will be investigated further, but the ex-right-back will be uncomfortable for a while.
