Gary Neville: “There’s Nothing I Like About This United Team At All”

Gary Neville has launched another scathing attack on his former club Manchester United following their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield in the Premier League at the weekend. 

The result means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side do not qualify for a Champions League spot next season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville admitted that he preferred watching the Huddersfield performance to that of his former club.

“This is Huddersfield Town who have struggled all season. You watch them, they haven’t got the quality, but I like watching them a lot more than the ones in the red shirts, to be honest.

“At least you can identify with them. There’s nothing I like about this United team at all. It’s just awful. Look at them. They’re the most despondent group of people.”

The draw means that United have won only one of their last eight games and have picked up eight points from as many Premier Leagues matches.

Solskjaer, who was named the permanent replacement for Jose Mourinho in March, has warned his players that some of them have played their last game in a United shirt and the club is expected to be very busy come the summer transfer market.

Neville insisted that his former teammate will have to dismantle his current in order to build it back up again.

“As a manager, you want to like your team. I look at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I can’t imagine he’s down there thinking he likes watching this lot – I don’t.

“This isn’t a team at all. It reminds me of the Tottenham group Mauricio Pochettino inherited, with Kaboul, Adebayor, Capoue in, a group of individuals without any real spirit – he dismantled it piece by piece.

“Ole will need to do the same, it’d be nice if the club got an experienced sporting director to help him, but the shambles of that recruitment reported in the press this week hasn’t helped.”
