“No wonder Valencia fired you”. Fans react as Gary Neville names his preferred Manchester United XI

“No wonder Valencia fired you”. Fans react as Gary Neville names his preferred Manchester United XI

Neville’s controversial lineup

Gary Neville hosted a Q&A on Twitter this lunchtime, taking questions from his followers. However, what stood out to readers was one particular answer, where he was asked who his chosen starting XI would be for the Red Devils if everyone was fit.

Neville opted to partner Scott McTominay with Paul Pogba in central midfield, while Mason Greenwood and Cristiano Ronaldo were stationed either side of Edinson Cavani.

Fans react to Neville’s decisions

Jamie Carragher was quick to react to Neville’s side, pointing to a discussion that they had on Monday Night Football about Pogba playing on the left-wing.

He also noted the omission of Jadon Sancho, who joined the club just this summer to play on the right-wing.

Carragher was joined by other Twitter users in trolling his Sky Sports Colleague, who mostly had the same concerns as the former Liverpool defender.

Clearly then, United’s best XI continues to divide opinion, a tale of the wealth of options available to the Red Devils.
