Man Utd legend Neville: DELUDED Boateng no Beckenbauer

Manchester United legends Gary Neville and Roy Keane attacked Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng during Germany's World Cup win over Sweden.

Boateng was dismissed as the World Cup champions struggled past their Group F rivals.

"Boateng's walking around the place like he's playing Sunday League football," Keane began. "He's been a disgrace. Get him off."

Neville agreed with his former team-mate and added: "Roy is absolutely right. The [Germany] centre-backs have been a joke.

"I mean Boateng, for some reason, seems to think he is [Franz] Beckenbauer, thinks he's the player. He's played under Pep (Guardiola) and started to believe he is a fantastic football player.

"He has been a joke in this first half. He's got delusions, thinks he is a player; he's wandering forward, ambling in the game."
