Club legend Gary Neville has explained that he is bored of Manchester United and does not want to watch their games any more under Erik ten Hag.
Erik ten Hag has been under increasing pressure at the helm of the team with the side looking like they will not qualify for the Champions League next season, and former United player Gary Neville feels he is now “bored” of being a pundit and commentator for their games.
“It’s well below par, it’s really disappointing, and I feel like the noise against the manager is starting to occur,” Neville told Sky Sports. “There are then those same noises that say, ‘Surely we can’t get rid of another manager. We’ve got to get rid of the players because they are the ones who have got rid of the other managers’.
“We then turn to the owners, and I’m bored. I have become tired of my own club. I don’t want to do their games [punditry/commentary] anymore, I don’t want to watch their games anymore, and that is the saddest indictment that you can have of your football club when you become bored of watching them when you become tired of watching them.
The club recently lost 1-0 against Newcastle at St James’ Park on Saturday evening after coming off the back of a 3-3 draw away against Galatasaray, with United failing to grab important wins where needed.
“It is not just me; a couple of people in the last couple of weeks have said, ‘Enough’s enough’,” Neville continued. The daft thing is, on Wednesday night [against Chelsea], I will build my whole Wednesday night around watching Manchester United.
“That’s life. We go and watch them again, don’t we? But that is how I feel: I feel tired of watching them. That is a sad position to be in.
“I love that club, and I love the excitement of football, but I am already fearing what is going to happen at Anfield in two weeks’, just purely because I think it could be a mess. I am already fearing what is going to happen on Wednesday night against Chelsea because it could be a mess.
“There is no confidence; the whole club has lost our confidence as fans. In the media now, we don’t trust them, either. The reality is that they fall below par time and time again, and it is not good enough. Definitely not good enough.”
Next in the league, United are back to Old Trafford as they welcome Chelsea, the only other “big six” club who are below them in the table. The two teams clash on Wednesday evening, with the tie kicking off at 20:15 GMT.
