‘A waste of space’ – Gary Neville launches FURIOUS attack on ‘hopeless’ Man Utd as Liverpool maul bitter rivals

GARY NEVILLE branded Manchester United a ‘waste of space’ and claimed they’ve reached a new low as Liverpool destroyed them 4-0.

Old Trafford legend Nev was staggered to see the ‘broken’ Red Devils outplayed so painfully in an Anfield annihilation as Mo Salah’s double put Jurgen Klopp’s men top of the Premier League.

The former England defender labelled United a ‘joke’ as Luis Diaz and Salah struck early, then he labelled their whole display ‘horrible to watch’ after the Egypt star and Sadio Mane netted in the second period.

Neville told Sky Sports: “The demise today and all season has been alarming.

“These are the easiest fixtures in the league at this moment in time.

“I’ve been watching Manchester United for 42 years. This is as bad as it gets in my time watching the club.

“This United team are a waste of space. They’re hopeless in front of David De Gea.”

The Red Devils were desperate for a positive result in their bid to squeeze into the top four – but Liverpool were streets ahead for class and tempo.

Nev added: ”This is just a nothing. Hide behind the new manager, blame the old. (There’s an) excuse mentality running through the club.

“Manchester United are fit, but they’re walking – at best an amble, a jaunt.

“Look at the space between the front and the back, it’s unbelievable. Then they get in shape and walk.”

Ralf Rangnick‘s beleaguered visitors at least kept Liverpool to just two goals at the break.

But other pundits backed Nev’s scathing verdict.

Sky Sports colleague Jamie Carragher said: “United are all at sea.”

And ex-Everton striker James McFadden told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Liverpool are in so much control. Some of their attacking play has been outstanding.

“Manchester United have no answer and they are yet to have a shot on target. It doesn’t look as though that will change in the second half.”

Neville was also in no mood for relenting as the pattern was resumed after the interval.

And he suggested Rangnick had to fight to control his own frustration.

Nev said: “They’re so passive. He’s ready to go here.

“His own professionalism is stopping Ralf Rangnick from going for them.

“It really is a low. There’s quite a few of those United fans that have gone.”

And as Liverpool rounded off the demolition, he added: “This is a broken Manchester United squad at this moment in time.

‘It was horrible to watch. It’s on the edge, that’s for sure.

“A decade of repeated failure, and that’s not good enough.”
