Is in crisis but still digs in: Manchester United’s downfall seems truly endless. The Red Devils were humiliated this Saturday at Brentford (4-0), as part of the second day of the Premier League, and are last in the standings. Former club player Gary Neville tried to find explanations for this endless situation. For him, the problem is not the coach – especially since Erik Ten Hag has just arrived – but also depends on the management and his choices.
For Neville, the problem is management
“These players have proven, under three different coaches, that they don’t work as hard as the teams they face. talent is not working hard enough?, asks the consultant on Sky Sports. This United team is not running enough, not fast enough, and has absolutely no confidence left. They are struggling and it has been going on for a year They haven’t been helped either and some will say they don’t deserve to be helped. »
« I understand, but having been in teams that struggled in the past, they need something. It has to come from the top. Today we hit a new low again. And Manchester United give the feeling of always digging a little deeper, Neville continues. When will we really get to the bottom (and then bounce back)? The reality is there, and it’s very very bad. »
Gary Neville believes the problem lies with club politics, or rather the Glazer family’s lack of politics. Evidenced by this transfer window, which sees United being dismissed from all sides.
« The problem is that no one wants their money »
« We can of course pass judgment on the players, but Christian Eriksen has just arrived, Lisandro Martinez too and he’s in the tough times. The other players, we’ve been talking about it for a year. I have the feeling that we say the same things all the time. Eight or nine months ago, Rangnick said that this club needed open heart surgery, recalls the consultant. He was supposed to join the general staff after his interim on the bench. Obviously they didn’t listen to him and they are unable to bring players to this club. That’s the problem today. In the past, United responded to the anger of the fans by spending money money in the transfer market but the problem is nobody wants their money they can’t spend it if you’re a player you look at first half performance… what are you going to think the idea of joining this club? »
« It’s a great football club, a magic club, the greatest thing in my life, I am proud to support this club but at the moment we are in despair. There is no leadership. You « You can’t blame the individual players or the manager. You have to look higher, to the very top. Joel Glazer has to fly to Manchester tomorrow, identify the club’s problems and say what his plan is, » Neville concluded. Because yes, there is already an emergency.
