Gary Neville looks like "bloke Phoebe dated in Friends" after wearing glasses

Gary Neville has been mocked for looking like a minor character in Friends.

The former Manchester United defender, 47, was pitchside at the Etihad on Sunday where he was wearing a pair of glasses. But his newfound look was mocked by a Twitter account that claimed the Sky Sports pundit looked like the ‘bloke Phoebe dated in Friends’.

“Pretty sure Phoebe dated this guy in Friends”, wrote @BeardedGenius. And the tweet went viral, with many agreeing that they saw a resemblance. One wrote: "He’s off to Minsk in the Europa League next year."

Another stated of the actor who played scientist David: "The legend that is Hank Azaria."

A third said: "How am I watching an episode of friends with him in it as this came up on my feed lol."

A last one wrote: "He looks quite hot…oh my god."

The character Phoebe dated David in the early seasons before their romance ended when he had to go to Minsk to work.

Meanwhile, Neville enjoyed poking fun at colleague Jamie Carragher on the final day of the Premier League season after Manchester City lifted the title.

The Sky Sports pundit was at the Etihad as City wrapped up the league win with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Aston Villa. Steven Gerrard’s men were two goals up after Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho found the net.

But then City sparked a huge turnaround as goals from Ilkay Gundogan and one from Rodri handed Pep Guardiola's side the trophy.

Liverpool needed City to lose or draw and for them to win, so even though they beat Wolves 3-1, they could not reach the title.

And Neville was quick to mock Carragher in his co-commentary, "Gundogan, you little dancer," said Neville as Sky Sports replayed the German’s goal. The words were in reference to Carragher saying the same about Mohamed Salah when the Reds beat Tottenham Hotspur during the 2018-19 season.

Later, in 2020, Carragher quote-tweeted Neville with the words ‘Mo Salah, you little dancer’ when the striker found the net, making it something of a running joke.
