Following Manchester United’s humbling 4-0 defeat at arch rivals Liverpool on Tuesday night, Gary Neville’s blistering criticism of the Glazer family’s ownership of the club has continued.

Neville believes the problems at his previous club are deep-rooted and have been a long-standing concern for whoever has taken over the management reins since Sir Alex Ferguson resigned. As a result, the 47-year-old is concerned for Erik ten Hag, who is expected to become United’s next manager at Old Trafford. The promotional videos of post-Ferguson additions such as Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez, according to Neville, are pushing the club’s authority in the players’ favor rather than the manager’s.

‘In terms of recruitment, look at what they’ve done over the previous ten years.’ Players like Sanchez and Pogba have been brought in with piano introductions. At the football club, the player has been promoted above the management. When you go to Liverpool, Chelsea, or Man City, the manager is the most important guy at the club,’ he said.

‘Over the previous ten years at Man United, they’ve undercut managers by raising the players to god-like status, and the players haven’t performed.’ The players could have performed better, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could have performed better, and Rangnick could have performed better.’

After disagreeing with Liverpool veteran Graeme Souness’ assertion that the problems aren’t caused by the Glazers, Neville spoke up.

‘Graeme, take this seriously. No owners of any good firm in the world can continue to pull money out of a business where the main activities of the business are failing and the cash reserves have been drained over the last three years through Covid,’ Neville said.

‘No shareholders, directors, or owners of a good business should continue to take money out of the business when the business is failing at its core activity, the cash reserves are being drained, and there is investment required in the hundreds of millions of dollars into the stadium and training ground. They won’t be able to do it.’

‘The club is fundamentally flawed, both on and off the field.’ The stadium is deteriorating, and the training facility is slipping behind other facilities. When the club need investment, the owners take £25 million out each year.’ Neville continued.

‘Man United will return and be successful because the world is a small place and they are a huge club.’ I’m not concerned about the long run. It may be five years, it could be ten years, but I never doubted Liverpool’s return.’
