Gary Neville has told Sky Sports he believes Manchester United could try to fast-track the managerial process to quell growing restlessness on and off the pitch.
United were poor against Leicester on Saturday night, turning in a disappointing 1-1 draw.
The team were uninspired and lacked direction, and at this point, have very little to play for now between the end of the season.
Neville said: “Over the next week I suspect after that performance we might see a PR spike, and the manager might be named.
“That was a really tough watch today. It was flat, we are bored.
“That was really bad out there today. This is going to be a long two months for United players and fans if they continue to play like that. ”
United were fortunate not to lose the game, with Leicester having a late winner disallowed. Fred scored United’s goal, his fourth of the season.
The Telegraph report Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is the managerial favorite. Even if he is named, however, he will not be joining the club anytime soon, as he has a job at Ajax.
But it would give a sense of clarity, to fans, and to players. It is much needed, to show the club there is another new beginning on the horizon.
Neville warned however that the real change would come from the top, accusing the Glazers of ‘trying to run a football club via Zoom before Zoom existed’, making reference to their hands-off approach.
Asked if the club’s Champions League qualifying hopes are over, Neville added: “I think so. I think the run in started today they had to get off with a win, they drew the game. ”
