Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, said the club’s owner, the Glazer family, have committed an ‘unforgivable’ offence over his lack of investment in Old Trafford, adding that it has permitted Liverpool and Manchester City to surpass the Red Devils.
Neville said he ‘used to laugh’ at the possibility of Anfield outperforming Old Trafford however presently feels Liverpool’s stadium will be viewed as the ‘more modern ground’ in 12 months’ time.
As per the former defender, decades of mismanagement among the owners and directors has ‘spoiled’ Man United, particularly in comparison with their unpleasant rivals Liverpool.
The Glazer family are persevering through serious pressure from Man United fans to sell the club, and Britain’s richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe on Thursday intends to launch a takeover bid.
“I used to laugh when I went to Anfield and compared it to Old Trafford,” Neville said on Steven Bartlett’s The Diary Of A CEO podcast.
‘I would always think “they can never catch up, they are too far behind.
“They are building that second stand now behind the goal where the away fans sit. The main stand now is towering up.
“Anfield will be a more modern ground than Manchester United and Old Trafford in 12 months. That is unforgivable.”
He added, “Manchester City are lightyears ahead on and off the pitch.”
“Tottenham have invested £1.3billion in a new stadium that is out of this world. It is a museum, it’s the best in the world.”
