Inter Miami face Philadelphia Union in the second 2021 MLS fixture of the new season. As part of his protocol pre-game press conference, Inter coach Neville was asked about the failed attempt by 12 European sides to breakaway and start a Super League.

The English coach claimed: "Watching my brother speak so passionately about the subject after the game when nobody really knew anything about it, the ins or outs or what the project was all about, he had the courage and bravery to stand up for what was right.

“He probably started the ball rolling and then in the next 24 to 48 hours later, common sense prevailed.”
