Sports Pundit and Former Manchester United footballer Garry Neville has hit out on Jose Mourinho and his present crop of Manchester United players, following a below par display against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The barren draw meant that the Red Devils have achieved four victories, four draws and four defeat in their last 12 games in all competition.
Garry Neville following the club’s condition has summarized their performance as Lethargic and inconsistent. In his own podcast, Garry Neville said: “There’s a lethargy, in terms of the fans going into the ground, watching the game, players on the pitch. I think Jose gave the right message before the game saying they will end up in the top four”. “I don’t think it would have been acceptable at the start of the season, and certainly the start of last season, to say the top four is achievable, because he will have wanted to challenge for the title with the money that has been spent. That’s where United need to be. But they’re not near that level at this moment in time, and it typifies really what they are at the moment, which is inconsistent.
“You can see them go away to Chelsea and nearly win, go away to Watford and Young Boys, and sometimes you can watch them at home against Wolves or Crystal Palace or Valencia, and they’re nowhere near. They’re inconsistent, not just in games, but from half to half within games.
“It’s not right obviously at this moment in time, the players are not performing anywhere near their level. You’d argue Jose at this moment in time will be scratching his head about which players to put out on the pitch. But he’s made changes before and it hasn’t really made any difference so it’s just about battling and fighting away at it, because it is a struggle. I think that’s the word to describe it.”
Manchester United will be hoping to return to winning ways when Swiss side Young Boys visit the Old Trafford in the Champions league on Tuesday.
