​Phil Neville is not averse to using social media to bemuse and infuriate, in equal measure.

The Man Utd '99 treble winner 'merked' himself without the help of former teammate Rio Ferdinand upon arrival at Valencia in 2015 with ​an overly-revealing tweet, before sparking public interest once again earlier this year with ​a glum selfie during his first ever tube journey.

Now, the younger Neville brother has taken to social media again on April 3 morning with an impromptu ​Twitter Q&A.

​​The former Everton captain gave quick fire answers to questions ranging from his proudest moment at Goodison Park (all eight years), to the most hostile away ground he's ever played at (Fenerbahce).

However, perhaps the most controversial answer came when asked if he would take any of the current Liverpool team at his old club Man Utd.

​​"Henderson" was the short and sharp reply, as Neville chose not to expand on his response.

The Liverpool captain has impressed in the engine room for United's fierce rivals this season, yet Neville's open admiration and particularly his selection over the likes of flair options Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho caused quite the stir among his followers, with several choosing to believe Phil was simply in a sarcastic mood.



There was, however, little doubt to Neville's motive when responding ​​to the poser of who the best player he's ever faced was.

"Zidane" came the unequivocal answer.

The current Real Madrid manager, who won the 1998 Ballon d'Or, famously squared off against Neville's Man Utd in the Champions League quarter final classic in 2003 - which Los Blancos won 6-5 on aggregate.

You'd think few could argue with Neville's choice of opponent, but as it is Twitter someone did anyway, with one cheeky user highlighting a particularly disastrous performance in Euro 2000 when Phil Neville's England let a 2-0 lead slip against a Luis Figo-inspired Portugal to lose 3-2.

Perhaps he's blocked that game from memory.
