Manchester United legend Gary Neville has admitted he was surprised by his former sides woeful showing against West Brom last weekend.
The Red Devils slipped to a suprise 1-0 defeat to bottom of the table Baggies at Old Trafford, which confirmed their bitter rivals Man City as Premier League Champions.
One of the reasons why this loss was so disappointing to many observers was because this was basically the same United team that had put in such a superb performance just a week previously to come back from 2-0 down to beat Pep Guardiola’s side in the Manchester Derby.
Neville won eight Premier League titles during his at Old Trafford and he has urged United boss Jose Mourinho to root out and sell the players within his squad that are preventing his squad from building a consistent winning mentality.
“I didn’t see it coming, it was a dismal, weak day for United. They started the season trying to rid themselves of these performances.”
“Mourinho referred to attitude and consistency, he needs to identify the ones causing those problems and they need to go. I think there will be three or four players leaving and the same number coming in.”
“He’s got to make that gap up and it’s going to be tough. Consistency is about mentality and the players fell well below that considering the last couple of weeks.”
