Gary Neville blasts Manchester United for playing like Under-9s against Brentford

Manchester United F.C.

Manchester United went into half time four goals down following a terrible display against Brentford

Gary Neville described Manchester United's four-goal first-half drubbing at the hands of Brentford as a "men's team playing against the Under-9s".

Neville, who was on commentary for Sky Sports, watched his former side make multiple mistakes in a dire showing with goalkeeper David de Gea liable for two of the goals.

"You just need organisation and fight to dismantle this Manchester United side. Get 1-0 up and they're flaky like you wouldn't believe. They're like jelly."

Brentford caused Erik ten Hag's side numerous problems from set-pieces and Neville questioned his defensive selection.

"If you'd said to me before the game Brentford might score from a free kick, I would have said yeah.  

"Ten Hag has picked the smallest team he could, hoping they would out play Brentford. You have to deal with the physical side of the Premier League. 

"Last Sunday didn’t surprise me. I thought they would do better today away from Old Trafford. But they have been mauled. Bullied. 

"Brentford are slapping us up….my phones going off….my head hurts….my heart…HELP NEEDED," Ferdinand wrote. "We are bottom….I’m going off grid."
