Gary Neville admits there is ‘nothing’ he likes about the current Manchester United side following their latest ‘awful’ performance.
Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield ended United’s hopes of securing Champions League qualification, with the club four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with just one game remaining.
The draw was the latest in a dismal run of form for Manchester United, with the club winning just twice in 10 games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as permanent manager.
Former United defender Neville slammed the side’s performance during Sunday’s draw, describing the club’s current situation as ‘awful’.
“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,” Neville said during his commentary on Sky Sports.
“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.
“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.”
