Gary Neville Says Manchester United Are Struggling Because Their Midfield Play is Too Slow: Nightly Soccer Report

gary neville Gary Neville Says Manchester United Are Struggling Because Their Midfield Play is Too Slow: Nightly Soccer Report

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has shared some salient criticism regarding why the Red Devils are struggling in the Premier League. Neville has pinpointed the club’s midfield.

Neville said:

“There is still a sense that David Moyes is finding out about his players and his own way in the job. The key for me is that the speed of their game through the midfield is not quick enough.

“United have always been about those relentless waves of attacks, sustained for good periods without counter which would eventually overwhelm the opposition. Because this isn’t happening, opponents have time to rest and recover between attacks.

“And it means teams are perhaps playing a few more attacking players against United and going into games with a bit more confidence than usual. Southampton certainly showed that in the first 20 minutes of the game.

“I have no doubt that David Moyes will be an excellent United manager. But for now he is having to endure some painful results.”
