Manchester United legend Gary Neville says his former club needs to 'react fast' following their defeat to Liverpool and bring in new players in order to compete at the top of the Premier League.
United suffered a 2-0 loss in the hands of Liverpool on Sunday and Neville thinks the Red Devils need to sign five or six players. The loss left United staggering 30 points behind their rivals Liverpool who took a step forward towards their first league title in 30 years. And Neville thinks the club needs to react fast and bring new players.
"They have really got to react fast and that means that they have to make good decisions," he said.
"There has been a real frustration in the last few years at Man Utd, the board have been U-turning all over the place when it comes to strategy. They've made some terrible investments in terms of recruitment and it's all coming home to roost and nothing brings it home more than seeing Liverpool right back at the top of that league, that is the most painful thing."
"I hope that everyone in that Man Utd executive boardroom team that they've got here today is feeling the pain of those fans and everyone else watching who is associated with the club because this is going to get bad."
"These next six months is going to be really, really difficult. I can't believe that the investment that has been put into the squad over the last five, six or seven years, and you end up with that out on the pitch. I cannot believe it."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, who are currently fifth on the log with 34 points will host Burnley on Wednesday 22nd at the Old Trafford.
