Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has claimed the Red Devils have become a ‘graveyard for coaches and players’.

Neville also said he feels sorry for Man United manager Erik ten Hag amid the club’s poor start this season.

United recently lost 3-2 at Old Trafford against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The defeat against Galatasaray in the Champions League comes after they lost against Crystal Palace in the Premier League last weekend at home.

The back-to-back defeats have subsequently piled pressure on Ten Hag, with a selection of Man United supporters questioning whether the former Ajax coach is the right man to lead their club back to the top of the game.

However, Neville has admitted to feeling sorry for Ten Hag.

“I feel very sorry for the manager, I know a lot of people will say he’s got to do a lot better, but there are a lot of big problems at the club that managers have found over the last ten years,” Neville told talkSPORT.

“I think until those problems are solved, we will still continue to see underperforming teams, underperforming players. It’s become a graveyard for coaches and players – it’s not too strong a term.

“There are very few players that excel at Manchester United in these last ten years. They were all great players when they came to the club, they were all wanted by other clubs.

“They won these players off of other clubs, and then they end up coming to Manchester United, and they end up not succeeding and not performing to their levels, why is that?

“It is because it’s not culturally correct to accept players in the way that it should do and we (United) need to get that right.”

EPL: Cole Palmer far from what we expected – Pochettino

Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has insisted he was not expecting Cole Palmer to have a big impact at Chelsea.

Palmer joined the Blues from Manchester City in a £42 million deal in August.

The 21-year-old has now scored 20 Premier League goals and is joint-top scorer with former City teammate Erling Haaland.

When asked if he’s surprised at how many goals Palmer has scored since moving to Stamford Bridge, Pochettino responded: “We believe they can perform but it is true he is performing in a very good way; maybe above expectation. I think it’s his first consistent season playing but we need to be careful because he is still young, he is growing, he needs to develop in different areas.

“But of course, he is far away from what we expected from the beginning. I need to be honest.”

Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua: Wembley to host ‘Battle of Britain’ heavyweight clash

Wembley Stadium appears to be the chosen venue for the highly anticipated all-British heavyweight showdown between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. The much-discussed bout is likely to proceed, contingent on Fury’s victory against Oleksandr Usyk on May 18 in Riyadh.

Bob Arum, Fury’s co-promoter, expresses confidence that the super fight will take place in London rather than Saudi Arabia. Arum believes that the Saudis, despite their substantial financial influence and ability to determine the location, would prefer to host the event at Wembley Stadium with a capacity crowd of 95,000, where they could act as promoters. He suggests that this choice would enhance their image more than holding the fight in Saudi Arabia.

However, Joshua may have to wait before facing Fury, as the latter might engage in a doubleheader against his Ukrainian opponent. Arum acknowledges that if Fury defeats Usyk and secures another victory in a potential rematch, it would be ideal for him to culminate his career with a significant fight in the UK at Wembley Stadium. Arum emphasizes the competitiveness of the upcoming match on May 18, recognizing Usyk as a formidable challenger who will push Fury to his limits. He also notes Fury’s dedication to training diligently for the upcoming bout.
