Gary Neville didn’t rule out the possibility of trading Monday Night Football for Strictly Come Dancing – vowing to “never say never!”
The Manchester United legend took part in a question-and-answer session on Twitter on Monday, answering questions on a variety of topics.
Most users chose to ask Neville about anything football related, but one fan wanted to know if he would ever appear on Strictly.
The BBC’s hit show saw many famous stars swap the sports arena for the ballroom.
David James, Robbie Savage, John Barnes and former Neville teammate Peter Schmeichel all donned sequins on a Saturday night.
Mark Ramprakash, Willie Thorne and Michael Vaughan have also done their best in the past, while rugby star Ugo Monye and Olympic swimming ace Adam Peaty compete in this year’s series.
Neville hasn’t shown much skill for neat footwork during his playing career, but the 46-year-old hasn’t dismissed the idea of ââsigning up for the show in his questions- responses on Twitter.
Responding to a tweet asking him if he would ever do Strictly, he wrote: “Never say never!”
Fans who watched the Q&A were more than excited about the idea, with one Twitter user joking: “MNF having the GNev Strictly specials, with Carragher analyzing movement and positioning.”
Someone else warned, “We saw you trying to do a mate step overs, I would let it.”
Another fan said: “I don’t think participating in a dance competition with both left feet is going to end well.”
