Gary Neville has launched another scathing attack on the Glazers after Manchester United’s humbling defeat against Brighton. 

Erik Ten Hag’s men were well beaten in the 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford meaning United have lost three of their opening five games for the first time in a Premier League season. 

It all comes amid a backdrop of ownership uncertainty with it still unclear what stage a potential takeover of the club is at.

Nearly 10 months on from the Glazers announcing they were seeking ‘strategic alternatives’ which could include a sale the process has stalled with offers from Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al Thani and Sir Jim Ratcilffe on the table. 

And Neville believes that is where the finger needs to be pointed. Initially addressing the result on X, the United legend and pundit said: “I’ve just got back from Old Trafford and you always have to be optimistic pre-match but the most concerning thing is what we ended up watching wasn’t a surprise. 

“This wasn’t a lack of effort or a group of players not interested. This was a team well-beaten by opponents that were well drilled and knew what they were doing. Simple as that.”

And then in a second post he added: “Oh and yes the Glazers are responsible. It’s how it works. You own a business and everything good and bad sits with you! 

“They inherited the best in all areas. They’ve overseen 10 years of mediocrity off the pitch and on the pitch. They set the culture of greed, ill-discipline, indecision and uncertainty that runs right through the club. 

“It would be best if they sold the club with some speed and efficiency and allowed at least the off-the-pitch items to be corrected properly that re-set the tone and culture. 

“Football is volatile so results on the pitch can be erratic and cyclical but if the off-the-pitch stuff including the owners direction and leadership are spot on it gives you a better chance to succeed on it.”
