‘Look at me when I’m talking to you’ – Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville in FURIOUS Sky Sports bust-up over Man Utd loss
GARY NEVILLE and Jamie Redknapp were involved in a FURIOUS Sky Sports bust-up following Manchester United’s embarrassing defeat to Brentford.
United lost 4-0 to Thomas Frank’s side in a gutless and appalling manner.
And Neville and Redknapp allowed the heat to get to them as things quickly turned red-hot after the game as the pair clashed live on air.
Neville, a former United captain, asked for the Glazers to take responsibility at the club and showcase their plan for United, but as Redknapp interjected to argue the blame should be on the players Neville bit back.
Neville said on Sky Sports: “No no, you had a go at the players before the break though Jamie,” though his fellow pundit continued to talk over him.
“When you’re a player, and we didn’t win the league for 30 years at Liverpool right – just look at me when I’m talking to you – we didn’t win the league for 30 years but we went through it.”
When the pair finally calmed down, they were able to more eloquently express their thoughts.
Neville said: “These players have proven with three different managers now that they don’t work as hard as the opposition.
“They don’t work hard enough, they don’t run fast enough and they are drained of confidence.
“They need something. That’s got to come from above. Today was a new low.

“Continually it seems United can surpass their previous low and things get lower and lower. This is really, really bad.”
Redknapp then added: “If I were in that dressing room, I’d be embarrassed.
“You’ve got to run around and win 50/50 challenges.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more abject performance from a club so highly respected.
“You’ve got to show you care and I don’t think they did today.”
Today’s result was a day of many firsts for United.
It is the first time United have been bottom of the Premier League since 1992, when they lost three games at the start of that season under Sir Alex Ferguson.
It is the first time since 1936 United have lost seven consecutive away games and the first time 1979 United have lost four games on the bounce.
And most importantly for today it was the first time United have ever conceded four goals in the first half of a Premier League game.
