One of the many greats that Manchester United have produced Gary Neville has finally spoken about the current situation of his former team and stated that it is the Manchester United board of management who is in fact responsible for their current situation.
Notably, Manchester United were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle United. Despite immense pressure on Red Devils’ manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Neville insists that years of bad recruitment have let the team down.
“They have cocked it up over many years. They have cocked it up. They have cocked it up, they are responsible for this. Poor recruitment, poor selection of, well managers, going with them and then pulling off them,” Neville told Sky Sports as quoted by Fox Sports Asia.
“Van Gaal won the FA Cup and then they sacked him. Jose Mourinho they sacked him after two and a half years when they had given him a contract six months before.
“They have pulled off managers in what would be the sort of thread of it and they have gone for completely different styles of managers in Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho
“They have now gone with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has taken the club in a completely different direction again, and if you change direction as a board every two years and you invest £250million along the way in each manager you are going to have big problems,” he added.
“And Manchester United are basically now getting the pain they deserve for poor decisions at board level.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to ensure that the clean up job that he is doing – which needs to be done because of the mess that’s gone before him – he needs to make sure that he actually gets the opportunity to spend that £250million that the others have got to spend so that he can have an opportunity.
“There are things out there that I like. There are things that I liked from Jose Mourinho as well, I didn’t want him to be sacked, but there were things I liked out there today,” he concluded.
The Premier League giants find themselves at the bottom half of the table and find themselves dangerously close to the relegation zone.
