'Furious' Gary Neville Urges Solskjaer To Oust 'Japanese Knotweed'

'Furious' Gary Neville Urges Solskjaer To Oust 'Japanese Knotweed'

Awful, just fucking awful.

Gary Neville labelled Manchester United's performance today as 'rancid' as the former captain tore into the players after United produced one of their limpest performances of the season at Goodison Park this afternoon, going down 4-0 to Everton.

Despite the crushing defeat, Sky Sports pundit Neville threw all his support behind new permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was forced to apologise to travelling fans after the match and urged his former teammate to ensure he rids the club of some of the more poisonous elements he finds in his squad over the summer.

I'm furious to be honest with you, the fact that he's had to go over an apologise for them. I've often said over the last seven years, if you have weeds in the garden you have to get rid of them but there's some Japanese Knotweed at that football club and it's attacking the foundations of the house.

Those players now, their heads are well and truly on the line.

Everton run 4 kilometres further in the first-half! Everton? And then you watch this mob out here Liverpool - who are their biggest rivals - they die for every single inch on the pitch and Manchester United players...

Honestly, it's embarassing!

Goals from Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lucas Digne had the Toffees three ahead before Theo Walcott got in on the act. You know it's bad when...

Solskjaer, who initially was placed in caretaker charge of the Red Devils when Jose Mourinho was sacked at the end of December, was handed the reins on a full-time basis last month after a run of fifteen wins from twenty games in charge, signing a three-year deal.

However, things have been a lot less rosy in April, as Premier League defeats at Wolves and now Everton have compounded the spanking Barcelona gave them over two-legs in the Champions League quarter-finals.

 

Neville's Sky colleague Jamie Carragher was adamant that United had reverted to their norm with their recent bad form.

"The three months of were the blip when they were winning - this is them back to the norm", the former Liverpool defender said.

The defeat could prove fatal to the Red Devils hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League, with United languishing in sixth and two points off that coveted fourth spot with only four games of their season remaining.

Things aren't set to become any easier for the Norwegian manager any time soon, as his faltering fuck-ups welcome title-chasing neighbours Manchester City to Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

With the supporters seemingly in full support of their manager things could turn very hostile toward the players should things go awry in the derby.
