Neville's morning began with him accusing widely respected former referee Pierluigi Collina of fixing Everton’s Champions League tie with Villarreal back in 2005.
Everton lost 2-1 to the Yellow Submarine at El Madrigal and 4-2 on aggregate, as Collina disallowed a late Duncan Ferguson header that would have sent the tie to extra-time.
Neville Jr. quickly deleted the tweet, perhaps realising Collina is actually a really scary bloke.
Anyway, poor Phil wasn't spared more abuse: his former Manchester United team-mate Peter Schmeichel trolled him over a photo he put on Instagram looking terrified on his first ever London tube journey… last week. Phil Neville is 40 years old.
