United needed to win against the already-relegated minnows to keep alive any slim hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top-four and playing in next season’s Champions League, and they looked on course to do so after Scott McTominay’s early opener.
However, Isaac Mbenza’s equaliser means United are condemned to another season of playing in the Europa League, and Sky Sports pundit Neville didn’t hold back when criticising his former players during and after the match.
The fuming former Red Devils said whilst co-commentating on the game, via Sport Bible: “This is Huddersfield Town who have struggled all season. Watch this Huddersfield team, they haven’t got the quality, but I like watching them a lot more than watching the ones in the red shirts to be honest with you.
“At least you can identify with them. Nothing about this United team I like at all. They’re just awful. They’re a despondent group of people. Luke Shaw doesn’t know whether to go with his left foot or his right foot.
“Solskjaer is smiling at them, they’re that bad. Manchester United’s away support will never stop singing but this group of players have drained the energy out of them. He’s [Ed Woodward] had several of them [transfer windows] already so maybe it will be better this time.
“This isn’t a team at all.
“It reminds me of the Tottenham group Pochettino inherited, with Kaboul, Adebayor, Capoue in, a group of individuals without any real spirit – he dismantled it piece by piece.
“Ole will need to do the same, it’d be nice if the club got an experienced sporting director to help him, but the shambles of that recruitment reported in the press this week hasn’t helped.”
So, United will face another team already doomed to relegation in their final Premier League fixture of a really frustrating season when Cardiff City visit Old Trafford next weekend, but what do you make of Neville’s comments?
Is he correct in his judgements and do this United side deserve all of the criticism they’re currently getting?
