Man Utd hero Gary Neville makes worrying Premier League title prediction about Liverpool


That’s the view of Manchester United legend Gary Neville, who was speaking on Sky Bet’s’ Big Debate.

Liverpool tried and failed to win their first English league title in 29 years last season, missing out to Manchester City by one point.

The Reds did end their season with a sixth European Cup, however, after beating Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid.

United, meanwhile, finished sixth in the league and endured a largely dismal domestic campaign as Jose Mourinho was sacked and replaced with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But despite United’s run of six years without a league title, having previously won it 20 times, Neville believes his old side are closer to winning another one than Liverpool are.

“I can guarantee you as clear as day, Manchester United will win again. They’ll probably win the league before Liverpool, in my opinion,” he said.

“And that’s not being disrespectful, they’ll probably win the league before Liverpool.”

Quizzed on concern that United were being overtaken by their Premier League rivals, Neville shot the notion down.

“No it doesn’t concern me,” he added.

“It genuinely does not concern me because it can be corrected by a little bit of money on the stadium and good decisions in the boardroom and good decisions in the recruitment department.

“What I’m saying is, Liverpool, City, Tottenham, all these clubs have had poor recruitment policies over the last 25 or 30 years at times.

“So United are going through one at the moment.

“Eventually they will stumble upon the right recruitment system, the right recruitment people, they’ll get a great manager – hopefully that’s Ole – and they’ll start to win again. That’s going to happen.”

Neville’s Sky Sports colleague and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher then joked that United wouldn’t win another European Cup.

But Neville replied: ”Maybe not, but I think they’ll win a league before Liverpool.

“They’re more ripe, they’re closer than you think and it’s not as bad as you think. That’s always the way it is.”
