Club legend Gary Neville insists that Manchester United must axe either some players or the manager Jose Mourinho after the Red Devils lost 1-0 to Brighton in the Premier League on Friday.
“I’m trying to find the word that you’d use to describe that kind of performance. I’ve said ‘woeful’ and ‘awful’, but it was a shocker from first minute to last minute,” Neville said in his post match comments on Sky Sports.
“It felt to me like it was a final straw for him with some of the players. The trust that you need with players had gone,” he added.
“I never thought at half-time that Manchester United would come out in the second half and repeat their first-half performance, but they did. In fact Brighton’s best period was 20 minutes after half-time.”
“Mourinho said it was important to him that four points were achieved to finish second and he couldn’t convey that to his players.”
“When you can’t get your message into your players then either the manager has to go or the players have to go.
“At this moment in time Manchester United are not going to lose Jose Mourinho, so he’s going to make some big changes in that dressing room. It was so bad, so bad. I haven’t got words for it.”
