Manchester United legend Gary Neville has named his worst performances for the club.

Neville won 20 trophies in just under two decades at Old Trafford, and was one of the Premier League’s greatest right-backs.

But he endured a number of displays that will haunt his days forever until he passes this mortal coil.

The Sky Sports pundit lists infamous games such as the final Maine Road Manchester derby, where Shaun Goater embarrassed him, as well as the club’s 1-0 defeat to Leeds in the FA Cup in January 2010.

But there was one game which he says was “a low moment”.

Asked to name his worst ever performance, he told United We Stand: “Real Madrid at home in 2000.

“I was going through a terrible period with confidence and felt like I didn’t want the ball. I remember being on the pitch, thinking “this is a low moment for me”.

“I was 25 and had never felt like that before.

“Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup was a bottle job for the team, too. Terrible, terrible.

“Vasco Da Gama was bad. That and the City one live long in the memory.

“I was in Brazil when Scholesy texted me: ‘How are you, Gaz? Fiasco Da Gama’, the cheeky little b*st*rd.'”
