Gary Neville gives brutally honest verdict on Man Utd defeat and aims subtle Tottenham dig

Gary Neville has given a brutal verdict on Manchester United’s Champions League exit. United crashed out of the competition on Tuesday with a 1-0 home defeat to Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the last-16 tie.

Renan Lodi scored the only goal of the game for the Spanish side in the first half. United managed just one shot on target after half-time as their trophy hopes this season ended with a whimper.

And Neville has now given his reaction to the defeat on Twitter. The former right-back admits he is not surprised at all by the defeat.

United beat Tottenham 3-2 in the Premier League on Saturday thanks mainly to a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo. But Neville says that result only proved Spurs were not a “good team”.

He said: “That’s season over. What is there really to achieve? Floundering behind Arsenal if they win their games in hand.

“Tonight was a reflection of what the season has been like. There were moments in the game where United looked good, but far too often, it’s a Jekyll and Hyde performance.”

Meanwhile, Scholes again hit out at his former club for the appointment of Ralf Rangnick on an interim basis. He says the German does not suit the squad United have and shouldn’t have been appointed in the first place.

“This isn’t a terrible group of players,” Scholes said. “I think if you give this group of players a structure and way of playing, there’s some real talent in the squad.

“They’re not as talented as the teams above them (in the Premier League), we know that. But, the very first thing this club needs to do, to get anywhere near winning the league again, is get a proper coach.

“Get a coach that suits the players, give them two or three years to build a squad of players that will challenge.”
