Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has slammed his side after falling 4-0 to Liverpool at Anfield, calling them the ‘worst team at the illustrious club in 42 years’. Double strikes from Mohamed Salah and a goal each from Luis Diaz and Sadino Mane helped Liverpool destroy Manchester United 4-0 on Tuesday.
“There are decent players on this pitch and talent. I can’t explain how he went from what would be marginally promising at the end of last season to finishing second – I know they lost in the final of the Europa League, which was a bad one – to the point where we are today, which is an all-time low in 42 years of watching United. I’ve never seen it as bad as this,” Neville said. , quoted by Goal.com. Neville added: “Manchester United were miles behind this Liverpool team in every department. On and off the pitch. It was a sobering night. We expected that. No Manchester United fan is came here with the slightest hope. This team has nothing.”
The United legend praised Hannibal Mejbri for showing a fight against Liverpool and remarked that the team were already done for the season as they were “done and broken”. “I erred on the unprofessional side of the comments when I said I was proud of him because he was trying to kick people. But he showed something, he showed us showed something: that he didn’t like the idea at Anfield of Liverpool passing him. The idea of Liverpool taking mickey and his teammates away from him. I’m not saying it was great that he was giving kicking Liverpool players and that he could have hurt them but as a Manchester United fan they can at least answer that.. The others…there are some who are probably good guys , good professionals, who have good careers, good talents, but they are broken. They are finished and they are finished this season,” he said.
Man United have been denied the services of star player Cristiano Ronaldo as the Portuguese footballer missed the game due to the sudden death of his newborn son. Hosts Liverpool took the lead from the fifth minute of the game when Luis Diaz scored for them. He was followed by Mohamed Salah giving his side a 2-0 lead in the 22nd minute.
Resuming the game after half-time, the hosts completely dominated the game as Sadio Mane netted a goal in the 68th minute. It was then that Salah put the final nail in the coffin and scored his second goal of the night in the 85th minute to take Liverpool to a 4-0 victory. Currently, Liverpool top the points table with a total of 76 points from 32 games, while Manchester United are in sixth place with 54 points. (ANI)
