3 minutes, 1 second Read


Gary Neville made his long-awaited Dragons’ Den debut on Thursday night, although it’s left some thinking he’s taking on too much.

The Manchester United legend was the BBC show’s first ever ‘guest dragon’, lining up with the famous entrepreneurs including Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden and Steven Bartlett.

The top of the show saw a 27-year-old football enthusiast hope to impress the dragons enough to achieve a £100,000 investment in exchange for a 10 per cent share of his business.

It may have pulled on the heartstrings of Neville but neither he, nor the other dragons were interested in investing.

Neville did invest along with fellow dragon Touker Suleyman in a Cosy Cinema rental concept which enables people to watch movies in a large container with a giant TV screen.

The 48-year-old Bury lad has plenty of fingers in pies as on top of his regular punditry with Sky Sports he runs Salford City, a university, a media business and handles a lot of construction activities in the Greater Manchester area.

He’s admitted himself that he works full throttle, even to the point that it’s harmed his health having endured a scare during Euro 2020.

Some footage from his Stick to Football podcast emerged on social media with Neville comparing of a rash in his eye that had been bothering him for ten weeks.

Former Man United teammate Roy Keane, who would’ve given him plenty of earfuls during their playing days, issued a warning to Neville about his work rate.

On the rash, Keane said: “I know what it is. It’s stress 100 per cent, you’re working too hard. Gary, you are working too hard.

“Your body is telling you something… you always have something.”

Arsenal legend Ian Wright added: “What are you doing? It’s coming out because your body is saying, ‘I’ve got to get this out, I don’t feel right.'”

Neville tried to ensure Keane and Wright that he has the situation under control, insists he relaxes after 7pm and is in bed by 9:30pm before being up at 6am to do it all again.

Keane responded: “Gary, listen to this. I swear, slow down. You’ve got a wife and children, all the money in the bank…”

Jamie Carragher then joked: “They’re telling him to hurry up!”

But it could be no laughing matter if Neville’s work rate does cost him and these fans were thankful to Keane for his advice.

One fan said: “Gary Neville will genuinely never get better advice than this from Roy Keane.

Another said: “Week in week out we see Roy Keane being funny and intimidating in equal measure. A side of Keane that we seldom see is his loving side. Magnificent advice here from Keano to his friend Gary Neville.

“@GNev2 listen to your captain.”

This fan added: “Roy Keane protected Gary Neville on the pitch. Roy Keane is now protecting Gary Neville by giving him great piece of advice off the pitch. Love Roy Keane.”
