Soccer pundit Neville blew up the Red Devils ‘performance in their 1-1 Premier League draw with Newcastle on Monday, calling Man Utd a bunch of wingbegs as Ronaldo and company endured a disappointing night at St James’ Park.
A little about the topic
Cavani’s second-half finish canceled Saint-Maximin’s excellent first half kick to ensure Rangnick maintained his win-win start at Man Utd, but visitors often found themselves mired in post-New Year’s sluggishness after a two-week hiatus in Covid-19-enforced. Another pinpoint performance by De Gea between posts was the greatest highlight of the otherwise inexperienced group showcase against their relegation infuriated the hosts – and ex-Man Utd defender Gary Neville didn’t pull his punches while dissecting their shared mentality.
What did Gary Neville say?
Gary Neville said there is no pressure, no urgency. Basics of the game, every battle, they lost. It was a very bad job. There is not a single thing that goes by as a team. There is not a single player who can walk in part-time and say that they have done their job or even done justice. According to Gary Neville it’s a bunch of wingbags. Watch them on that field. Hands in the air, complaining about everything. They got the last manager bag and they’ll get a lot of bag managers, which is a lot if they keep going like this.
What did Ralf Rangnick say?
Reflecting on his side’s performance, Rangnick pointed to their inability to dominate the game on a physical level, adding that he was less than impressed with the overall performance. Ralf Rangnick said today was not a matter of body language, it was a matter of physicality of the body. If they want to be competitive here, they have to get physical, and this was not the case in many parts of the game.
According to Rangnick, he didn’t like the performance at all. Today they did not control the game apart from a few moments. It’s all about energy, physicality and who wins the second goals. In all these areas, they were not at their best. The good news is that they got a point, but the performance should be better.
