Gary Neville rants about “madness” Man United decision that INEOS just made



| Last Updated:


Gary Neville opened up on a “madness” Manchester United decision following Erik ten Hag’s 2-1 Premier League win over Luton Town.

Thanks to an early brace from Rasmus Højlund, Manchester United defeated Luton Town 2-1 in the Premier League.

Although it was very much a stressful affair, the win has seen Erik ten Hag‘s men continue their unbeaten start to 2024, colliding with multiple positive decisions that INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have made.

Since the bid for 25 per cent of the club was accepted, Ratcliffe and his team have appointed Manchester City’s Omar Berrada as the new Old Trafford CEO, and are set to appoint Dan Ashworth as the club’s new sporting director while also targeting recruitment specialist Sam Jewell from Brighton.

Manchester United legendary captain Gary Neville, speaking after the game, has explained that it is “madness” that, after 10 years, the club are only just making these types of decisions and appointments.

“When you think for 10 years, Manchester United’s managers have operated without a CEO that’s actually been in a football club before, without a sporting director, without a known head of recruitment… it’s madness,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“I mean, forget negligence; it’s just madness. The idea that obviously Jim Ratcliffe’s come in and just appointed a CEO that’s been at a football club before and a football director, we’re all thinking, well that’s, it’s staggering, it hasn’t happened, it’s unbelievable.

“It would never happen at any other club, so I think what we’re seeing now is just normality. It’s not sort of anything special at the moment.

“Just putting good people into one of the best clubs in the world is a sensible thing to do, and that’s why it feels like there’s a new energy about the place.”
