Erik ten Hag’s team capitulated against the Bees in the first 45 minutes of their Premier League encounter on Saturday, shipping four goals without reply before the break. The Dutchman opted to ring the changes at the interval, but by then the damage had already been done, and the Red Devils fell to a second embarrassing defeat of the season, just one week on from losing 2-1 to Brighton at Old Trafford.
Following the full-time whistle, Neville began to point fingers at United’s owners over their lack of investment this summer with regards to transfers, only to see the subject spark a raging reaction from fellow Sky Sports pundit Redknapp. As a surly Neville appeared to ignore Redknapp after the former Liverpool midfielder interjected, he was ordered to “look at me when I’m talking to you”.
Neville began: “But there’s a family over there in America, who are just literally letting their employees take all the hits for them and that is unforgivable. They have got to get on a plane, Joel Glazer has got to get on a plane tomorrow, he’s got to get over to Manchester and he’s got to start to divert the issues away from the club and tell everybody what the hell his plan is with the football club. What is he doing?”
