Gary Neville Was Disgusted By 'Ted Lasso' Comments From Manchester United Players

Gary Neville Was Disgusted By 'Ted Lasso' Comments From Manchester United Players
By Gary Connaughton

Gary Neville's patience with the current Manchester United squad has bean wearing increasingly thin in recent times.  The Sky Sports pundit has been open in his criticism of the team's form, as well as their attitude both on and off the pitch.

It not difficult to see why he is unhappy. Their level of performance has been woeful in recent months, while they have also consistently leaked stories to the media about how unhappy they are with many aspects of life at Old Trafford.

This trend continued last week, with players revealing to the media that they had been comparing Ralf Rangnick's American assistant Chris Armas to Ted Lasso, the dysfunctional football coach from the hit comedy series.

Gary Neville slams 'Ted Lasso' from Manchester United players

It is not something that sat well with Neville. Speaking on The Gary Neville Podcast, he slammed many of the United players for their attitude and revealed he knows what squad members are leaking these stories to the media.

I thought that was downright disrespectful on Friday. I didn't find it funny at all, the fact that they were describing the number two of Ralf Rangnick as 'Ted Lasso'.

I didn't find it funny at all, I thought it was disrespectful. I thought it was disgusting in fact.  It actually summed up what I think of them, that they are disrespectful.

I think if I was Ralf Rangnick and his number two I would gain strength from that because I wouldn't want to be on the same page as some of those players that are leaking those types of stories. It never happened in my time but we had the greatest level of stability...

They're at it, the PR teams, the marketing teams the agents. They're at it in search of self preservation and protecting their own player.

What they don't realise is that when they go and speak to those media people, those media people speak to us, so we find out about it. We know who is briefing.

The reality is we don't like it. I'm not going to throw people under a bus here because we have that journalistic respect...

This Manchester United team are it, self preservation, looking after one another, excuses all the time. Stop it.

The Manchester United squad is certainly in need of an overhaul, with many players on bloated contracts underperforming for far too long.

While it has been reported that Mauricio Pochettino is the first choice in the dressing room to become their next manager, a few of them could quickly find themselves out of the club should he arrive this summer.
