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.”

Football365 now reports that Liverpool have offered the 33-year-old to Atletico Madrid this summer.

This is basically because the Reds want to start a new era following Jurgen Klopp’s departure.

However, Atletico Madrid are said to be uninterested on taking up the offer.
