Manchester United fan gets brilliant Gary Neville tattoo on his leg

Football supporters worship their club and like to show how passionate they are by getting tattoos of their favourite players or managers; it's nothing new.

Whether it's the club's badge, the most successful manager or their favourite playing individual, their adorations quite literally become manifested through different pieces of art on their body. 

Strange extremes

However one particular Manchester United fan has caught they eye recently, with his tattoo of former captain and current Sky Sports News pundit Gary Neville. 

This die-hard Red Devil supporter got Neville's famous celebration during United's last minutes winner against Liverpool from 2006 as his chosen illustration. It's safe to say plenty of people were left bemused by the decision, and even Neville himself decided to get involved in the fun.

The tweet

The tweeter in question - @jpowney1984 - posted to Twitter: "Hey @GNev2 had this done today. Love you mate"

Neville kindly took the time to reply by retweeting the photo and posted: "Love you to!! Haha"
