LONDON: Gary Neville described Manchester United as ‘a bunch of odd players’ who ‘didn’t play well as a team’ to win the Premier League title.
The failure of Bruno Fernandes to complete a penalty led United to lose 1-0 at Old Trafford against Aston Villa which was also their first defeat in the league this season.
For the United legend, The Red Devils have many players with individual qualities but no clear style of play needed to win the Premier League.
“Even if they win, even when (Cristiano) Ronaldo scores, they don’t play well enough as a team to win a title, that’s my view. They don’t play well enough as a team,” Neville told Sky Sports.
Neville believes the addition of the high -profile player plays a big part in the lack of unity in the team.
“You have to have a pattern of play, a style of play, and at this point I still see a group of individuals playing with different patterns and combinations at some point but still a new team playing together.
“Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho – they have to be together as a team and start showing a certain way of playing. Then you will get good results even if you don’t play well.”
