Former Manchester United player Gary Neville has responded to criticism of inflated prices for the new hotel which he part-owns which is to open next month in the shadows of Old Trafford.

Sky Sports pundit Neville, 39, is opening the hotel on February 28th along with former team-mate Ryan Giggs, 41.

The hotel, which has 133 rooms is over 10 storeys will be able to host 1,500 fans on match days, but some fans have been unhappy with the proposed prices for the new venue.

But the ex-United star, said the beer was good value, and the same price as pubs nearby.

And addressing the rumours a pint would cost nearly a fiver, he said: “You’re looking at London prices, mate. Pint £3.50 like Trafford Arms and others!”
