Manchester needs a title winning squad

Neville says that they shouldn’t blame Solskjaer for their problems.

Manchester United’s

former player


says that the club’s board is to blame for the team’s performance and there is nothing that a coach can do because they haven’t had a title winning squad in six years.

“I've still got a thing in the back of my mind with this club that to allow a manager to win a title, you have to arm him with the players to do so,”

Neville told Sky Sports


“And have the ownership, the recruitment department, whatever you want to call them, done that?

“He needed another centre-back, he needed a right winger. They had to play Pogba left wing today, Greenwood on the right wing. They're still fudging it.

“They have six midfield players and trying to fit them all in.

“It is square pegs in round holes all the time - I don't think they have given any manager in the last five or six years a team that can win the title. That's the job of the people above.

“For me, there is dual culpability in terms of why Manchester United aren't successful.

“Ole's lack of success in not winning a title will not just be down to him but he's got to get close with that group of players and start dominating matches.

“He won't think that first half against West Ham [in a 3-1 win] is anywhere near the standard that is going to get Manchester United to a title,” said the former Red Devils defender.

“He obviously will keep putting a positive spin on it and today said it's the best they've played against City but the reality of it is he'll know they're not performances that will win titles. They're not; they're nowhere near.”
