Gary Neville blasts Glazers for Man Utd takeover saga

Gary Neville blasts Glazers for Man Utd takeover saga

Gary Neville has slammed the Glazers for treating Manchester United like a "toy".

It was reported at the weekend that United's American owners are set to take the club off the market with the plan of putting the team up for sale again in 2025 when they think their valuation can be met and the Sky Sports pundit was highly critical of the family in the wake of the club's 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the weekend.

Speaking on 'The Gary Neville Podcast', he said: "It's just a game for them, they think it's a toy! Of course they're going to sell. They're desperate for money.

"They can't even compete on FFP anymore. Man Utd are talking like a midtable club when it comes to the transfer market. Man Utd turn over £500m, one of the highest revenue generating clubs in the world.

"Chelsea, Arsenal can sign big players, Man Utd are scrambling around on FFP. I know they've had losses on Covid and that could be thrown as an excuse."

Neville also felt there were signs of encouragement for United in their late loss to Arsenal even though they fell to defeat in another big match.

He said: "They've rightly been accused in the past of their appalling record in away matches against other top nine teams - they'd picked up one point from the 24 available last season which is just awful.

"It was big for them the last 10 minutes, and they've fallen short again. That will be the over-riding thought at the end of this game.

"There will be massive disappointment, but if I'm thinking about it logically, there were elements of that performance that were a lot better than what I saw at Tottenham and certainly than what I saw against Nottingham Forest and Wolves where I thought at times, they got cut apart."
