The consultant once again attacked the Red Devils, whose performance is insufficient, this time questioning their character.
Gary Neville once again used his platform on Sky Sports to criticize an underperforming Manchester United side who let Leicester City crush him in their 4-2 loss on Saturday. Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville called Manchester United players “babies” with too much ego to play together. He compared their performances to those of Manchester City and Liverpool, who he said “work like dogs” to get results.
EXCLUDED – Mohamed Simakan: “There is something good in suffering”
United are relegated to sixth place in the Premier League, five points behind leaders Chelsea. “United were appalling throughout the game”Neville said. “In the second half there was a huge, huge change – Leicester seemed able to score with every attack. United are just too wide, there’s space everywhere and they’re a pretty horrible team to watch when they’re too wide. They must think they are better than they are. “
“If they score, they swell their chest”
“You end up with two teams: the front five, the egos, the big players, and the back five. You have individual errors, but also a disconnected team. This United team is also very bad in their reaction to Goals. They’re like babies. If they score, they puff up their chests. Really basic mistakes. The players at City and Liverpool work like dogs, and they’re the best players in the world. Why do we accept players? United don’t work as hard as them? Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] must make the most of them. If he doesn’t, he will have a huge problem at the end of the season “, thus analyzed the former player of the club, reassembled.
“I don’t think it’s a problem of [Paul] Pogba, “Neville added of the oft-criticized midfielder.” I’ve seen forwards flirt with teammates they don’t like – and it has to stop. What Ole has to prove is that he can put the best players to work. United forwards are not organized, they have to make an effort “, insisted the consultant, who has tasted little of the setback conceded at King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Not to miss
Full-back Luke Shaw recently said the club’s mentality has improved significantly following the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo – but it has yet to pay off on the pitch. The season is open for Solskjaer and his players. On Wednesday, they will meet Atalanta in the Champions League and will have to avoid defeat at all costs, otherwise they will be even more exposed to increasingly insistent criticism in October.
