In attempting to wish the Valencia fans a feliz navidad via the club’s official website, Gary Neville came perilously close to losing his famous keen analytical eye.
While offering a simple champagne toast, the bottle in Neville’s hand popped its cork without warning and the projectile pinged past his face at a fair old rate of knots.
Indeed, the whole thing shook our Gary up a bit (pun shamefully intended)…
Yep, turns out old hard-arse Nev is actually a bit skittish.
