The England international was charged with misconduct by the FA and handed a £40,000 fine for calling Spurs s***.
While many have slammed his actions, Neville admits that it was refreshing to see such passion from a Premier League player:
“When Jack Wilshere swore on a bus ride, I actually thought it was one of the best things I’ve seen from a football player in the last five or 10 years,” as quoted by the Mirror.
“If I was a manager of players that all had that passion… Alright, they’d obviously been out the night before.
“But the reality of it is we cry out for players to have passion, and yet we are quite critical of them when they display passion.”
