Manchester United lost to Brighton on Sunday.


What did Gary Neville say?

English manager Gary Neville has blasted the Red Devils for leaving Erik ten Hag in an unacceptable position to start the season, with the pundit in charge of the club having to better support the head coach in the transfer market. Manchester United lost 2-1 to Brighton on Sunday in a dreary start to Erik’s tenure. Erik chose two new signings against Brighton as Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez, with Tyrell Malacia off the bench in the second half. But Gary believes more needs to be done to enable the manager to succeed.

Gary said he thought it was a shock to Erik. Gary Neville says it’s clear they’ve had a promising preseason, but he thinks anyone who’s watched the Man Utd players they’ve been handed to him will recognize that it’s a familiar performance. Neville says that the people above him should have known it was an unacceptable situation to hand over this unit to ten Hag, Erik needed improvement more than it already did.


“today there was a lack of football intelligence”

Former Red Devils player Roy Keane clashed with Gary over problems facing the current roster. Gary thinks the players who are picked give 100 percent, but Roy disagreed, saying they saw the stats last year. They don’t run, they don’t sprint. According to Roy Keane, this does not give him 100%. The word coming out of the training ground in the last month or two is that they are training right now, there is discipline, they will train on time. It comes from the group, they know it better than anyone.

Roy says the stats suggest it’s more last season since they obviously have one game a season that they don’t give 100%. Keane thinks there was no football intelligence today, they’re dead, they can’t keep clean sheets.
