Gary Neville says there is “nothing” he likes about the current Manchester United team after their 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town on Sunday.

United’s hopes of securing a Champions League place were dashed after their loss to already-relegated Huddersfield.

Isaac Mbenza cancelled out Scott McTominay’s first-half opener for United, who twice hit the crossbar through Paul Pogba.

“This is Huddersfield Town who have struggled all season,” Neville said during commentary on Sky Sports. “You watch them, they haven’t got the quality, but I like watching them a lot more than the ones in the red shirts, to be honest.

“At least you can identify with them. There’s nothing I like about this United team at all. It’s just awful. Look at them. They’re the most despondent group of people.

“As a manager, you want to like your team. I look at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I can’t imagine he’s down there thinking he likes watching this lot – I don’t.

“This isn’t a team at all. It reminds me of the Tottenham group Mauricio Pochettino inherited, with Kaboul, Adebayor, Capoue in, a group of individuals without any real spirit – he dismantled it piece by piece.

“Ole will need to do the same, it’d be nice if the club got an experienced sporting director to help him, but the shambles of that recruitment reported in the press this week hasn’t helped.”
