- Gary Neville insists the Glazer family must explain their plan for the club
- He also claims that the owners have allowed their employees to take the blame
- The former England international believes the club’s position has become desperate
- United suffered their second straight defeat with a 4-0 defeat at Brentford
Gary Neville has demanded that the Glazer family “come to Manchester” to explain what his plan is for the future of Manchester United as he again criticized the club’s ownership.
The former United full-back, speaking after the game, hit out at the club’s owners and claimed they have bled the club in an impassioned monologue on Sky Sports.
Neville said they would have to travel from their home in the United States to offer an explanation of how they intend to fix the myriad problems at Old Trafford.
United suffered back-to-back defeats in their opening two Premier League games for the first time in 31 years after thrashing Brentford 4-0 on Saturday.

Neville spoke passionately as he tackled the many problems at Old Trafford
Neville said: “There’s a family in America who let their employees take the blame. They need to get on a plane to Manchester and explain what the plan is. We’ll never have the Glazers here. The only money ‘they have spent on players the club has generated.
“The Glazers have borrowed and used the income the club generates through their incredible fan base. The four of us could buy the club tomorrow and spend the same money. What I’m saying is that there has been a toxic culture in this club for the last 10 years since Alex Ferguson and David Gill left. It’s a mess.
‘And this cannot continue. Embedded failure for a period of ten years must return to the owner. I blamed Woodward for a long time, but the Glazers left him on the spot. They haven’t dealt with the rusting football field.

‘They need a billion for the stadium and probably a few hundred million for the training facilities. A few years ago they were cash rich, now they are struggling. Something has to give.
After losing their first game at home to Brighton 2-1, the search for new players became a little more frantic, with United linked with Marko Arnautovic, Adrien Rabiot and Mauro Icardi.
Both fans were quick to criticize the club’s transfer policy, with the ex-Arsenal and England pundit calling these targets “primark players” when United should be chasing players from “Harrods”.
De Gea’s error set the tone for what was to come as United went 4-0 down after just 35 minutes.
And with failed approaches for players deemed below the team’s standards, the 47-year-old admitted the club is in urgent need of change.
He said: “I think these players to be fair, Eriksen was new, Martinez was new. It’s very difficult to be a 5ft 9in center back at Brentford.
“I can’t believe it was 8 or 9 months ago that Rangnick said United needed open heart surgery. Nobody wants to take their money, it can’t be spent because nobody wants to come here.

“It’s a huge football club, it’s the most important thing in my life. I couldn’t be more proud to support Manchester United. But now he’s desperate.
Neville’s comments mark the second time the former player-turned-pundit has publicly criticized the Glazers in less than a week.
Speaking after United were beaten 2-1 by Brighton in their first game of the season on Sunday, Neville called on the controversial American owners to sell the club immediately.

“The time has come for the Glazer family to sell the football club. It’s now. They’re the easiest team to play against in the league, that’s a huge concern. Their opening is unbelievable. It will have been a shock to he (Ten Hag) after a promising pre-season.
“The people above him should have known it was an unacceptable situation to hand Erik ten Hag this team. Ten Hag will be disappointed… the reality has hit home. The manager needs time, so don’t I’ll go. And there comes a time when I won’t even have a chance with the players.
“If you have a business and the people in that business can’t do the work for you, then you put them out of business. It’s an abuse to keep them on the job any longer because they don’t enjoy it either. The reality is that these players need to be replaced or supported more by better players. These things have been known for a long time.’
