Gary Neville slams ‘appalling’ Man Utd after Leicester City loss

Mon 18 October 2021 | 23:23

Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has described United’s performance as appalling after their 4-2 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday.

The Red Devils experienced another bad day as they collapsed in a 4-2 loss against


at King Power Stadium.

Speaking on the Monday Night Football show,



"United were appalling all the way through, In the second half there was a massive, massive change - Leicester looked like they could score with every single attack.

Neville called Solskjaer's men "like babies" in response to a conceded goal and said "they think they are better than they are".

"United are just baggy, there's space everywhere and they're a pretty awful team to watch when they're baggy. They must think they're better than they are. You end up with two teams: the front five, the egos, the great players, and the back five.

"You've got individual errors, but also a disconnected team. This United team are also really poor in reacting to goals. They're like babies. If they score, they puff their chests out. Really basic errors.

"City and Liverpool's players work like dogs, and they're the best players in the world. Why is it that we accept United's players won't work as hard as them? Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] has to get the best out of them. If he doesn't, he's going to have a massive problem at the end of the season."

"I don't believe this is a [Paul] Pogba problem,"


added on the often-criticized midfielder.

"I saw attackers flailing around at team-mates they don't like - and that has to stop.

"What Ole has to somehow prove is that he can get top players to work hard. United's forward players are not organized, they need to put a shift in."

United are currently sitting sixth in the Premier League table and are five points behind league-leaders
