Gary Neville brutally trolled by Dragon’s Den contestant as Man Utd legend stuns Deborah Meaden on debut

GARY NEVILLE was trolled on his Dragon’s Den debut – as a contestant breathed fire on the football legend’s ability as a pundit.

The Manchester United legend wowed fellow Dragon Deborah Meaden with his entrepreneurial knowledge – but that couldn’t save him from a sharp-shooting jibe by a former FOOTBALLER.

Ex-professional player Billy Childs, whose company sells football boots used by stars, called himself “ridiculously ambitious”.

And he was also ridiculously cheeky – in his assessment of former England defender Neville.

Childs, 27, opened his pitch with a withering verdict on Nev‘s analytical skills on Sky Sports.

The straight-faced budding entrepreneur said: “I’m excited about Gary being a Dragon here.

“Hopefully his interest in my business is better than his punditry – opinions on some teams defending in the Premier League.”

Neville, who has a £100million business empire, went on to snub Childs’ plea for financial help.

He loved the idea of selling memorabilia – but was sceptical as he believes players give their boots away for financial gain rather than charity.

It came as Nev made history as the first-ever guest panellist on the BBC show where contestants pitch for investment from experts.

Famous long-serving Dragon Meaden hailed the Salford City co-owner, 48, for his “really good business brain”

She added: “You’d think he had been a Dragon his entire life… He was fantastic, I’m not kidding you, and he’s prepared to invest.”

But her glowing review didn’t stop another Dragon, Steven Bartlett, from having a fun dig at Neville.

As Childs prepared to enter, Bartlett said: “Isn’t it good we’ve got a Dragon here who knows a lot about football – and Gary Neville here.”
