Neville: City are getting old

first_img The former Manchester United full-back reckons the age of the City squad and the impact of Financial Fair Play mean the chances of success in Europe for Manuel Pellegrini’s men are decreasing every season. City lost their opening game of this season’s Champions League 1-0 in Bayern Munich on Wednesday. Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Neville said: ” Two championships in three years marks them out as a great English side who sit alongside the title-winning teams of Arsene Wenger, (Jose) Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson. But just looking at them now, and where they are in their development, I feel this team is in a dangerous position. “Before Wednesday’s game I said: ‘For this team the time is now.’ I looked at the line-up and felt they were growing old together. Football allows that less and less. The fruit is ripe – but you had better eat it quickly, because it’s going to go off. “The value of those players will drop quite sharply in the next 18 months because everyone will know they are going over the edge. People used to say of Ferguson: ‘Why has he sold this or that player when he’s still performing really well?’ Answer: because he knew what was coming. “There is a trace of that now with City. Their problem, though, is that Financial Fair Play is chasing them down the road. So their option is to sell big now and buy young replacements in the next 12 months. “If they wait any longer they will be in trouble on the saleable value of the current players. Another route would be to bring through academy graduates.” Manchester City are running out of time to win the Champions League, according to Gary Neville.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Boo me not the players – Van Gaal

first_imgManchester United boss Louis van Gaal has told fans to jeer him, not the players, after some in the Old Trafford crowd demanded a more attacking style.United have scored one goal in their last four games and fans chanted “we want to attack” during a narrow 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday.”I can only advise the fans to criticise the manager and not the players,” he said.”I can cope with it. I have had a lot of experience in my life as a manager.”Van Gaal added that the atmosphere at Old Trafford could be hindering his side’s creativity.He said: “When you play for Manchester United you believe that you have to be top of the league. That’s the culture of the club.”All the players who are coming here feel that, but it is also a pressure. You have to cope with that pressure. “It’s very difficult to play for Manchester United with a lot of pressure and you can taste that in Old Trafford because of all the yelling, then it’s not good for my players.”The Dutchman believes the club is “more stable” than when he took over as manager in the summer of 2014, after he had guided the Netherlands to third place at the World Cup, but says scoring more goals is essential.”We still have to play a lot of matches, but we have many more points, we are more stable, we are having less goals against us than last season.”We have to score more goals, but only one more than the opponent.”And, of course, we still need players with more creativity and pace on the wings. That I have said five months ago, three months ago and now I am saying it again, but we need that, so we are still in a process.” Manchester United play West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday.The Baggies, who have won the last two Premier League games they have played at Old Trafford, have kept clean sheets in four of their five away matches in the league this season.last_img read more
