Longevity and domination in world football.
Despite his protests, Terry clearly believed that Neville deserves an MBE and replied by saying: “Best right back of our generation Gaz , dominated world football and won everything for Man Utd. Played at the very top all your career for club and country. I’m seeing people being given MBE’s and OBE’s for a flash in the pan.”
He also added that he thought David Beckham deserved a knighthood to add to his OBE.
Amongst the five people associated with football to be named on this year’s list are Chelsea Women manager Emma Hayes and England assistant manager Steve Holland.
