Gary Neville insists David de Gea needs fans support amid torrid run

Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Gary Neville has said that David de Gea needs the support from the fans and teammates amid the recent run of poor form. The Spain international has been guilty of making numerous goalkeeping mistakes in the past month and the most recent of those came during the 1-1 Premier League draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Neville said that De Gea has been the standout performer for the Red Devils over the years and the faithful are unlikely to turn on him on the basis of the recent showing. He added that he requires as much support from the fans and teammates to overcome the current patch of form.

Gary Neville heaps praise on Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford

Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Gary Neville has heaped praise on the performances of Marcus Rashford and believes the Englishman would be the player to transform the club’s fortunes in the future. Rashford had been in-and-out of the first-team under the guidance of Jose Mourinho earlier in the summer but the Portuguese’s dismissal has meant that he has regularly led the line ahead Romelu Lukaku.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville highlighted that the United graduate has enormous potential within himself and he could set the example for the club’s success in years to come, he quipped: “The spring in the counter-attack is there and Rashford playing up front is fantastic – I love him to bits. He’s played nearly 150 games at the age of 21 and his potential is enormous. It’s actually now stepping up beyond the potential to where he will be a top-class player. People will talk about Romelu Lukaku and how is he getting back in the team – don’t worry about that, worry about the kid that’s playing that’s going to devastate teams.”

Gary Neville unsurprised by Anthony Martial’s contract decision

Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Gary Neville has said that he is not surprised by Anthony Martial’s decision to snub a new long-term contract with the Red Devils. The France international has recently found form for United with three goals scored from as many matches and this has encouraged the board to open talks regarding a contract extension.

However, according to Sky Sports News, the Frenchman is said to have turned down the latest contract offer from the club and Neville is not surprised with the decision, he said: “I’m not surprised he’s turned down a new deal. I think it’s probably the general answer of everybody that gets offered a new contract nowadays, that they turn a new one down. He probably wants the same level of money some of the other players in the squad are on, he is probably looking at his options externally. From that point of view, at this moment in time, it doesn’t surprise me at all that he’s turned it down.”

He would be in any conversation for best natural striker in the world at the moment.
