Leeds United youngster mocks Phil Neville

Leeds teenager questions Phil Neville's punditry.

Irredeemable as far as Leeds United fans are concerned, don't expect former Manchester United duo Gary and Phil Neville to win any popularity contests in Yorkshire any time soon.

The derision of the club's former rivals appears in built, with a star of Leeds United's under-18 side taking a cheeky dig at Phil Neville's punditry last night.

Neville was on BBC's Match of The Day 2, offering his opinion on under fire Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius among others.

Leeds teenager Theo Richardson, a goalkeeper in the club's academy who recently featured in their FA Youth Cup match, had little time for Neville's analysis.

Call it the goalkeeper's union sticking together, Richardson retweeted a message from Stoke City stopper Shay Given, praising Alan Shearer for rebutting Neville's criticism of Karius.

With current Leeds number one Rob Green declaring an intent to play into his 40s, via the Yorkshire Evening Post, it could be a long while until their youth team star gets his opportunity, but he appears to be single minded enough not to let any criticism he one day receives go to heart.
