Gary Neville thinks Manchester United must sign five players following their 2-0 loss to West Ham over the weekend.

The Red Devils have only picked up eight points from their first six matches of the Premier League season, falling ten points adrift of leaders Liverpool.

And following United‘s unconvincing performance against the Hammers, Neville has claimed that the club need to invest heavily in five positions.

“Ole will realise that that’s a really poor performance and that he has a lot of work to do,” Neville told the Gary Neville podcast.

“I shouldn’t be surprised. This team is not ready. There will be lots of pain and it was painful today.

 

“They were lethargic. When you let games drift and pass by, other teams gain confidence. I’m not panicking but they need to really quickly and efficiently identify five or players to go alongside De Gea, Maguire.

“They need a couple of midfielders, a striker to carry the frontline, a wide player and a left back. They know what they want and the fans know that.

“But they have to be of the right type. It could take 18 months to find the players you want. I wanted United to win today but I’m not surprised. I’m not surprised West Ham did a job on them.”
