A witness claimed that a group of City fans accosted Neville over United’s poor form and in particular their incompetent manager.
The witness said: “A group of drunk lads got quite physical with Phil, one even said ‘we’re gonna shag you to death’.
“Neville was obviously fearing for his life, and when the crowd brought up Moyes, Phil screamed ‘I don’t know who you’re talking about’.
“He kept saying ‘I don’t know the guy, I don’t really follow football, I’m only the first team coach.”
Now a source within United has revealed that Moyes himself prophesied Neville’s cowardice while having a meal with the coaching staff and senior players.
The source said: “At evening supper David likes to take a handful of barbiturates and place a plastic bag over his head.
“As a result, he can become quite lucid in his drugged ramblings about the future.
“He told Phil that he would deny him three times before being taken away and gang fucked by a team of Roman soldiers.”
