Man United

Neville states ‘fact’ that ‘Man Utd will win again’ as ‘established’ and ‘history’ claims made

The Red Devils “will start to win again,” according to Manchester United icon Gary Neville, because they are “too established” not to.

After Monday’s 4-0 drubbing at Crystal Palace, the absentee-hit Red Devils are currently in ninth place and need to win three more games to avoid having their lowest finish and point total since the Premier League’s inception.

The FA Cup final between United and neighboring Manchester City is more significant now because United’s dismal results and performances have put further pressure on manager Erik ten Hag, who is already under fire.

Whatever happens at Wembley, there will be significant changes as Ineos aims to return to the top of the Old Trafford hierarchy; nevertheless, former captain Neville thinks that the match on May 25 may serve as a spark for better things to come.

“As sure as the sun will rise, Manchester United will start to win again,” he told the PA news agency. “It’s a fact.

“When that is, I don’t know. It can be no guarantee, but I know that these things go in cycles.

“I lived my whole childhood watching Liverpool, Everton and Arsenal win trophies, win the old Division One, and was patient.

“I had to wait until I was 18, 19 when Manchester United first won a league title in my life – and then we won a load of league titles, and now we’ve not won one for 10 years.

“I know full well that in my lifetime – hopefully – Manchester United will win trophies, but they will win trophies again. We will get it right, just as Liverpool will, just as Arsenal will.

“You can’t keep these great clubs down. I’m sorry, they’re too big, they’re too established, they’ve got a great history, they go through lean periods.

“Look, I hope in three, four weeks that this FA Cup final against Manchester City, which is such a tough game, we know how good City are, but if they can just defy the odds who knows where that might lead to.

“You know, in 1989-90 Sir Alex Ferguson won an FA Cup that put belief into him, into a group of players.

“They then went onto win a Cup Winners’ Cup, then went onto win the League Cup, then went onto eventually win a league title.

“It was building block by block, step by step and that could be just around the corner, or it could be a few years away, but they will win again Manchester United. It’s inevitable.”

The FA Cup final is a rematch of the highlight match from the previous year, which City won 2-1 to win the Champions League and become the second English team in history to accomplish the treble alongside United.

The competition between the rivals takes place the day before Ferguson’s team celebrates the groundbreaking achievement 25 years later with the premiere of a new documentary series on Prime Video on Friday.

At the world premiere of “99” in Manchester on Thursday night, Neville was present alongside the United triple heroes and relished the opportunity to reflect on their incredible season.

“I remember saying to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that night ‘you don’t know what you’ve just done’,” he said.

“Honestly, it hit me the minute that goal went in. I lay on the floor and looked up because I was a United fan. I knew that what we’d done was monumental.

“Not just to get the treble, but just the actual winning the Champions League, so to look back on it is great.

“We obviously want to achieve things in our post-football careers, but nostalgia’s good every so often and I think this was the right time to do it.

“It’s the last time this story could be told, I think, by the group of players that took part in it.”
