Neville criticised Guardiola’s decision to name just six substitutes for last weekend’s Premier League trip to Burnley.
The Sky Sports pundit thought that the City boss could have named a youngster on the bench to give them the experience, and branded the whole thing a “joke”.
“If you’re a youth team manager at Manchester City, ring him up and ask which kid deserves that boost,” Neville said. “Who has been playing well this season and who has worked hard?
“If you’re the Academy or reserve team manager at Manchester City you must think ‘I’m wasting my time’. Forget the fact they’ve spent however much money, six players on the bench… to me it’s like a protest.
“I think it’s a joke, I absolutely think it’s a joke”
However, Guardiola hit back ahead of his side’s game against Leicester City, even aiming a sly dig at the former Valencia manager.

When A-League goes Sunday league.
Jack Stephens got more than he bargained for.
What a Sunday afternoon.
Jose has been at it again.
Some fine play from the pair.
A different take from the United legend.
Mohamed Salah has made a lot of people very happy.
This left us in shock.
He sure knows where the back of the net is.
