Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville's son Harvey has won International Premier League with Red Devils rivals Manchester City.

Neville's youngest son was part of the City side that beat Benfica 2-0 to claim the Under-13 tournament.

The competition was held at Warwick University involving eight English teams, as well as Genk, Athletic Bilbao and Portuguese finalists Benfica.

According to the Manchester Evening News, champions City had Robin van Persie's son Shaqueel and former United man Darren Fletcher's twin son in the side.

Harvey's mum Julie Neville took to Instagram to congratulate her youngest son: "Proud mum seeing my son and his team win the National Finals last weekend making them the best team in England in their age group x."

Phil Neville won six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and a Champions League with city rivals Manchester United but will be proud of his son's achievements, even if it is in a City shirt.

Staunch United fan and Harvey's uncle Gary will be less than impressed that the youngster has chosen the blue side of Manchester.

The Sky Sports pundit was once caught making a one fingered gesture at Carlos Tevez after the striker scored for City against United in 2010. In an earlier incident, Gary Neville ran over to City's travelling contingent after Michael Owen scored a late winner in United's 4-3 derby win in 2009.
