And Neville has said he is looking forward to watching promotion and relegation issues unravel.

“I think the Championship will go ahead,” he said on The Football Show on Sky Sports. 

“I do think it is sad to be fair that the funding can’t be put into place for League One and Town.  

“We are going to see clubs like Stevenage and Tranmere probably lose their spaces in their leagues without even having the opportunity to play for it down to economic reasons because the funding isn’t there to support football at that level.

“But I do think the Championship will play and I do think that will be something that happens pretty quickly after the Premier League. 

“We all know how important it is to the likes of Leeds and West Brom, who are at the top of that league. Everything they have invested, not just financially but emotionally to get into the Premier League, how important it is for them as clubs. 

“There is a lot to look forward to in terms of football not just at the Premier League level but at the Championship level, and the play-offs likely at League One and Two as well.”
