Fulham fans troll Neville with ‘w*nker’ chant as Carragher has brilliant reply

Fulham fans have trolled Gary Neville with a "w*nker" chant that caused Jamie Carragher to produce a brilliant reply.

The former Manchester United defender was targeted by the home supporters at Craven Cottage on Friday night as Marco Silva's side faced Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League. During the first half, fans could be heard singing: "Gary Neville is a w*nker, a w*nker," as Neville appeared on Sky Sports' coverage of the match.

Fellow pundit Carragher, who was commentating on the match, could then be heard saying : "Just let it breath Martin," to his co-commentator Martin Tyler, to the amusement of viewers at home.

One fan took to Twitter, writing: "That made me laugh." Another added: "That's class." A third also commented: "No fans even come close to football fans, we're just a different breed."

Neville himself even captured footage of the fans chanting his name and shared it on social media, with the clip showing supporters of both clubs aiming verbal jabs at him before he turns the camera to show his grinning reaction.

The former England international was often the subject of abuse from opposition fans during his club career, particularly at Craven Cottage.

Back in November, he even revealed how team-mate Paul Scholes once joined in with the infamous chant: "If the Nevilles can play for England so can I."

Speaking in a clip shared to social media, he explained: "You see this stand here in the background there. That’s the first-ever time that I heard the shout.

"There was some blokes about, 50-odd-year-old with flat caps on. It was freezing and we were warming up and they started singing ‘if the Neville’s can play for England so can I’.

"Scholesy was warming up with me and Phil like we always did at right-back down there in that corner and started singing along with them. Little B*****d."

On the pitch, it was the visitors who opened the scoring, with Wolves taking a first half lead through Pablo Sarabia in the 23rd minute, a lead they held until the interval.
