Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged the club to take a page out of the books of Liverpool and Manchester City and rebuild. The club is far from the feared club it once used to be under Sir Alex Ferguson. This season was disappointing for the Red Devils as they ended 6th in the league with some disappointing results towards the end.
The only thing close to an achievement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men was beating PSG and Juventus in their own backyard in the Champions League.
Gary Neville who was an integral part of the club’s golden era, has called upon Solskjaer and co. to rebuild like Liverpool and Manchester City did.
Neville said, “Over the last five years you’ve seen a team that’s gone away from the vision and philosophy of what the club is all about.
But, what I would say when you look at City, Liverpool and Tottenham, their club’s foundations are really strong. And you’d say United’s are from a financial point of view. But stability on the field? If you look at those teams they have a system and a style of play and tried and trusted method whereas United seem to be going left and right from manager to manager and they need to get back to what United do best.
You hope with Ole, Mick Phelan, Michael Carrick and Nicky Butt there in the Academy that United will start getting back to the foundations. I think it will take a long time, it’s not a quick fix but hopefully with those guys in charge and the financial muscle United have still got they can get back challenging soon because it’s difficult watching Manchester City win everything. It’s difficult because they’re miles better than United at this moment in time.”
