Neville slams ‘woeful’ Man Utd performance against Brighton

Gary Neville has described Manchester United as awful, terrible and woeful following their shock defeat to Brighton on Friday night.

The Red Devils went into the game against the Seagulls knowing that a victory would virtually secure their place in second position in the Premier League, while a defeat would endure that Brighton remain in the English top flight for a further season.

However, despite knowing the permutations of the game, Mourinho’s men slipped to a 1-0 to the recently promoted side, something which caused the Portuguese to question his side’s attitude.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho wasn’t the only man with scathing words for the Red Devils, with former Man Utd captain Gary Neville having some pretty damning assessments of the United performance.

“It felt to me like a final straw for him with some of the players,” Neville said on Sky Sports.

“Woeful? Awful? It was a shocker from first minute to last minute. I never thought they’d come out in the second half and repeat the first half performance, but they did.

“When you can’t get your the manager has to go, or the players must go. He’s going to make some big changes in the changing room. I’ve not got words for it.

“I said during commentary, any player wondering why they aren’t playing in the cup final, show them that video, that attitude was terrible, it was awful.

“They were absolutely terrible tonight, terrible. It’s not good enough. It’s the end of the season, but they’re wearing a Manchester United shirt and the standards have got to be higher. He’s lost faith in some of them.”
