Gary Neville tells young fan Liverpool won't win the title

Gary Neville is back at Sky Sports and that's fantastic news for every armchair fan of the Premier League.

He may have flopped at Valencia - any young British coach who doesn't speak Spanish would have failed at Mestalla last season - but nobody talks a better game than the former Manchester United captain.

Ahead of the 2016-17 Premier League season, Neville has been back in the Sky Sports studio giving his predictions for the new campaign.

One of his interviews was with a young Sky Academy student named Laura.

The young girl conducted a thoroughly professional interview with the former England coach, who was asked to name the team he thinks will win the Premier League title this season.

Neville reacts to suggestion Liverpool will win league

First, though, Laura confessed she was a Liverpool fan and that, in her opinion, the Reds will finish the 2016-17 campaign on top of the pile.

Immediately afterwards, she asked Neville: "Who do you think is going to win?"

The pundit then replied, somewhat bluntly: "Not you!"

You have to feel for the poor girl, who looks no older than about 10.

"I think United will win the league," Neville added.

Probably feeling a little guilty for his earlier comment, Neville then said: "And you're a fantastic young presenter and I think you'll be on Monday Night Football one day."

Nice one, Nev.
