Bristling Gary Neville insists he will NEVER call for a manager to be sacked after being pressed on Ole’s future… having torn into Man United’s flops – calling them ‘appalling’, ‘baggy’, ‘BABIES’ who ‘think they’re better than they are’
- Manchester United were disappointing in a 4-2 loss versus Leicester on Saturday
- Several of the Foxes goals came due to poor Red Devils defending and mistakes
- And United legend Gary Neville blasted the club’s attackers for their showings
Gary Neville has ripped into Manchester United stars, but insisted he will never call for a manager to be sacked when pressed on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future.
United lost 4-2 against Leicester in a highly disappointing showing on Saturday, leading to further questions over Solskjaer’s management of the Red Devils.
And although Neville blasted the performance on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, he restated his desire to avoid calling for the chop.
Gary Neville has blasted Manchester United players after a poor 4-2 defeat against Leicester
He said: ‘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.
‘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.

‘This United team, they haven’t got a style or identity, only brilliant players. The players broke rank, it’s bad and they need to correct that pretty quickly because they’ll lose a lot of games playing like that.’
Neville then continued to compare United’s forward players unfavourably to those from Liverpool and Manchester City, in terms of work rate and pressing.
He added: ‘I don’t believe this is a (Paul) Pogba problem. 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 organised, they need to put a shift in.
Neville called United stars ‘appalling’, ‘baggy’, ‘babies’ who ‘think they’re better than they are’
‘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 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 thought last season there was something building. They’ve got six grenades where the pins have been pulled out in the dressing room. You’ve got massive characters and all the issues developing with the dynamics in the new squad. Ole has to solve this week. United could beat Liverpool but they have to get that spirit right.
‘Ole should be under massive pressure but the club are not going to change him. I’m not going to come on the show and call for a manager to be sacked. But the pressure is building, and it should do. What a collection of players, they’ve now got to perform and Ole has to get them to perform.’
