Gary Neville and Roy Keane in disagreement over Leeds United survival chances

Gary Neville and Roy Keane are in disagreement as to whether or not Leeds United will manage to avoid the drop this season.

The Whites find themselves close to the relegation zone but two wins in two has seen them distance themselves from the bottom three.

Keane believes that the win against Wolves was the turning point as they got the job done despite playing badly.

Speaking on Sky Sports Overlap Neville said, “I think Everton or Leeds could go down, I do.

“Leeds win was massive at Wolves, but I do think, looking at both those squads, they could go down.”

To which Keane responded, “No matter how bad they were v Wolves, they won the game. You find a way to win the game. Even they are mad as they are on some days, they have energy. I think they’ll stay up.”

Neville’s still salty

At half-time during the Wolves game, Neville believed Leeds were set to go down.

Nobody saw them coming back in the second period and scoring three goals without any reply.

But that shows the fighting spirit and mentality of these players and Neville’s not willing to give them credit for it.

What matters now is how many wins teams down there can get.

It’s not important if they play good football and dominate games to get the job done.

Burnley and Sean Dyche have found themselves in such situations time and again and they’ve always managed to find a way through and that’s something Jesse Marsch needs to do with this squad.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are leading the race to complete a major signing and have already opened talks to seal a £25m deal.
