The former England international was unimpressed with the Red Devils’ performance against Everton and insisted some players need to be let go
Gary Neville has blasted the Manchester United squad following their 4-0 defeat to Everton, comparing them to Japanese knotweed that is “attacking the foundations” of the club.
The Red Devils suffered an embarrassing loss to the Toffees on Sunday, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men unable to compete with Marco Silva’s rampant Everton side.
The Manchester club eventually fell to a 4-0 loss, managing just one shot on target themselves at Goodison Park throughout the entire 90 minutes.
After the game, Neville voiced his anger at the performance and insisted the result was simply down to the players underperforming.
“I’m furious to be honest with you,” Neville said on Sky Sports. “Clubs over the last seven years, if you have weeds in your garden you’ve got to get rid of them, but there are some Japanese knotweed at that football club.
“It’s attacking the foundations of the house and it needs dealing with properly.
“A few weeks ago I said that Jose Mourinho and the fans stuck with him, but wanted him out at the end.
“They aren’t going to want Ole Gunnar Solskjaer out. Those players now, well and truly their heads are on the line.”
Man Utd are now sixth in the Premier League on 64 points, which is two behind Arsenal in fourth.
Solskjaer’s men have just four games left this season, including clashes against Manchester City, Chelsea, Huddersfield as well as Cardiff City.
