Manchester United are in a world where they need to compete with those teams to get the best players into the club.‘Who is rebuilding this squad for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and for the Manchester United fans? I’ve asked that question since Christmas and from the start of the season.‘I don’t think there’s anybody there at this moment in time to rebuild that club from a football point of view, in the way that it needs to be built.‘I might be proved wrong, I might be completely out of order, but at this moment in time the evidence is there that something is fundamentally wrong.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityNeville has not only backed Solskjaer, but went on to say that the previous three Manchester United managers were not to blame for their failures either.The 44-year-old believes the current boss desperately needs some help from above him at the club if he is to improve their fortunes.‘I never wanted David Moyes, Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho to be sacked because I never fundamentally believed it was a managerial problem,’ continued Neville.‘I certainly don’t want Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be sacked because I love him to bits. So to protect him and get the club back where it needs to be, he needs to be supported by good recruitment and good support on the football side, he won’t be able to do it on his own.’United are sixth in the Premier League and out of all competitions, ahead of the Manchester derby on Wednesday at Old Trafford.MORE: Alan Shearer mocks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Everton thrash Man UtdMORE: Man Utd suffer humiliation at Everton as top four hopes take major hitlast_img read more
