Italian teams were not clean” or “the Italian teams were not very clean”. The heavy accusation of doping comes from Gary Neville e Roy Keanetwo former players of grande Manchester United in sir Alex Ferguson (Champions League winner in 1999 and 2008). No names from the former English defender, now sports director and coach, and from the former Irish midfielder but i Red Devils between the 1990s and 2000s they faced Fiorentina, Inter, Juventus, Lazio and Milan.

“There is something wrong'”

“I think there were some teams we played against that they were not clean. Even then we thought something was wrong“, he said Gary Neville during the podcast Stick to Football are SkyBet. “And now, when you look back and see what came out with the doctors in cycling and other sports…” added the former United defender. “Once I walked off the pitch against an Italian team and I said to myself: ‘I’m sorry, but there’s something wrong’. And I know a couple of other guys I played with in the mid-2000s felt the same way. Neville doesn’t reveal the ‘suspicious’ teams and games, though.”I can’t name names or accuse people“, the lapidary declaration.

“I was destroyed, the Italians looked like they hadn’t even played”

Same opinion as his teammate Roy Keane. “Against some teams I wore myself out and at the end of the match I came out destroyed. A couple of times against Italian teams I looked at my opponents and it looked like they hadn’t even played the game”.
