Gary Neville slams “weird” Manchester United players after Nottingham Forest loss



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have been slammed for being “weird” after their 2-1 loss against Nottingham Forest on Saturday evening.

Manchester United undid good work on Saturday evening as they fell to a lousy defeat away from home against Nottingham Forest, with the club sitting seventh in the Premier League table.

Depending on the results in the new year, they may be as low as ninth in the league before they next kick a football under Erik ten Hag.

After a fantastic second-half performance at Old Trafford on Tuesday saw them fight back to beat Aston Villa 3-2, Gary Neville has slammed a “weird” United side for becoming lax in their final game of 2023.

“They’re a weird team, this Man United one,” Neville told Sky Sports on Saturday evening.

“It’s almost as if at 0-0, they think they can play at a snail’s pace and then when they concede a goal – ‘oh we better get going here, let get’s a move on’. They don’t anticipate danger at all.

“At half-time, the lads were talking about the belief. Nottingham Forest can half work out how bad this Manchester United team are.

“It’s so poor from United, especially considering how good they were at Villa, it was exhilarating. They’re a yo-yo team. They weren’t keen on talking about it as a turning point because they don’t trust themselves.

“All the talk the other night was how much these players are playing for Erik ten Hag. What does this prove after we’ve seen so far in 50 minutes? That they’re not playing for him?

“This almost has nothing to do with Erik ten Hag. From 45 minutes to 45 minutes, they’ve gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. And now it’s ridiculous.”

Neville also added: “Manchester United are back to their worst, back to what they are – inconsistent and awful.”
