Gary Neville’s old claim he would move to Papua New Guinea if Liverpool win title comes back to haunt Man Utd legend


- Advertisment -

SCENIC Port Moresby and the beaches of Madang may soon have one more resident after Gary Neville said he would move to Papua New Guinea if Liverpool win the title.

The Manchester United hero has remarked a number of times that the southwestern Pacific may be his only safe haven if the Reds claim first place.

And, on Thursday night, Jurgen Klopp’s triumph was finally confirmed – condemning Neville to a new life abroad.

Following the title confirmation, Sky Sports posted a hilarious clip of pundits and presenters attempting to find the former right-back.

Neville had previously joked: “Liverpool could win the league and I might have to move to Papua New Guinea or something!”

In the clip, Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp, Graeme Souness and Kelly Cates are all seen frantically hunting down the pundit.

John Barnes quotes Taken in telling Neville, 45, he has a “particular set of skills” to help his search.

At Manchester Airport, he finally appears with a ticket to take him to Papua New Guinea.

When asked if he is travelling for business or pleasure, Neville drolly replies “neither”.

After Chelsea’s victory over Manchester City guaranteed a first Anfield crowning in 30 years, the United legend posted a waving-goodbye emoji to his Twitter account – with Rio Ferdinand cheekily vowing to quit social media for a couple of weeks.

Fellow Sky pundit Carragher, who starred for Liverpool for his entire career, posted a picture of a sad Neville in a Liverpool shirt while holding a champagne bottle.

In speaking with Reds captain Jordan Henderson, the ex-defender encouraged him to savour every moment while fans celebrated by the gates of Anfield.

Popping a champagne cork, Carragher called out: “Jordan, you’re a great professional – but tell me you’re going to get absolutely rotten tonight like me!”
