Gary Neville challenges Matt Hancock to join him and Jamie Carragher on MNF

Gary Neville has challenged Government official Matt Hancock to appear on Monday Night Football.

The Secretary of State for Health & Social Care has shone a light on the earnings of top flight stars in recent days.

The Premier League has so far not come to an agreement with the PFA regarding pay, yet four clubs have placed non-playing staff on furlough.

Neville has already leapt to the players' defence this week and has now asked Hancock to open himself up to questions alongside himself, Jamie Carragher and the general public.

He tweeted: "Hey @MattHancock seeing as though you’re focusing on football so much can you come on @SkySportsMNF this week ? Special edition. Questions from the football community / fans will be presented by me, @DavidJonesSky and @Carra23".

Last week Hancock said: “I think everybody needs to play their part in this national effort and that means Premier League footballers too.

“Given the sacrifices that many people are making – including some of my colleagues in the NHS, who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice of going into work and have caught the disease and have sadly died.

"I think the first thing Premier League footballers can do is make a contribution, take a pay cut and play your part.”

Premier League players are under pressure to take a 30 per cent pay cut.
