‘Manchester United need Bale or Ronaldo to win Premier League’ – Neville
Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has claimed that the team need two world-class players like Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo to make them Premier League champions again.
Neville believes that his former club are not far away from being capable of title glory, despite manager Louis van Gaal facing plenty of criticism for his style of play.
United are currently third in the table, just one point behind leaders Manchester City after 14 games. Neville has claimed that the Red Devils are just two world-class players away from being title winners.
“If you put two more players into Manchester United’s team, say a Gareth Bale or a Cristiano Ronaldo into that team, that team could win the league because the structure that is being built at this moment in time is solid,” Neville said on the Gary Neville Podcast.
“But they need that matchwinner, that Neymar, that Luis Suarez, the one that is going to light up a game and score one or two goals to take it away, then all of a sudden they would look like a Barcelona, because they’re dominating possession, making teams look foolish.”
United last won the league in the 2012-13 season.
