Gary Neville has tweeted a video of the class of 92 taking on some fairly nifty builders on top of the Hotel Football in Manchester.

The Sky Sports pundit was joined by former team mate Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs as they visited the construction project.

Giggs and Neville launched a joint hospitality company – GG Hospitality – with ambitions of developing a worldwide football-themed hotel and restaurant empire beginning with this site in Manchester .

The hotel, being built right next to Old Trafford, will be a 138-bed venue with a five-a-side pitch on the roof.

The 10-storey building will also house a supporters club, and Neville has previously said it will play host to up to 1,250 fans before matches.

The game was going swimmingly until Ryan Giggs skewed a ball off his left foot and into a nearby river.
