Gary Neville slams Ed Woodward and Glazers after Manchester derby humiliation
Gary Neville believes the nature of Manchester United’s 4-1 hammering to Manchester City was a “fitting memorial” to the last ten years of mismanagement at the hands of the Glazers and Ed Woodward.
The Reds were dismantled by Pep Guardiola’s side in the second half which led to allegations and claims of the United players down tooling and showing a lack of fight.
Neville was a key driver of those strong statements alongside the likes of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.
At one stage in the second half across a 15-minute period, Sky Sports produced a staggering possession stat which highlighted the notable gulf in class between the two Manchester clubs.
The reigning Premier League champions across that duration of play had 92% possession compared to United’s measly eight per cent.
If this was a boxing fight the referee would have waved it off or United’s corner would have surely thrown the towel in.
It was an absolute obliteration, which was also devastatingly humiliating. United couldn’t get anywhere near the ball. It looked like the six formers had taken the ball of the school’s new year sevens.
United’s former right-back Neville has this morning directed his frustration by pointing the figure to the Glazer family and former CEO Woodward.
He took to Twitter to air his views and highlight the scale of the job United face in climbing the mountain and competing with the likes of City for major honours once again.
Richard Arnold was in attendance at the Etihad alongside the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill. Arnold faces a huge job and an even bigger summer, steering this forever vulnerable and swaying ship.
Another former Red Patrice Evra summed up how the Manchester United fanbase was feeling throughout the second half massacre with a story on his Instagram account.
