Sir Alex Ferguson jokes that Gary Neville should not be working on Sky Sports because he hasn't got a face for TV.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson launched a playful jibe at former defender Gary Neville and his work with Sky Sports.

The 38-year-old has been highly praised for his TV punditry since becoming a football expert for the broadcasters, but Ferguson believes that he made the wrong choice.

"He has chosen to go on to the TV which isn't wise as he's not photogenic," Ferguson said in a Q&A session with the fans, according to The Sun. "I mean look at him — that's not a face for TV, is it?"

Neville racked up 400 appearances for United before retiring in 2011.
