Gary Neville joins Cristiano Ronaldo & Bruno Fernandes after the Newcastle draw

7

Ex-Manchester United captain Gary Neville was extremely unimpressed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to ignore the traveling fans after Monday night’s miserable 1-1 draw against Newcastle, while also criticizing Bruno Fernande’s “whining” and bad body language.

An equalizer from Edinson Cavani and a big late save from David de Gea ensured that United fled St James’ Park with a point they probably did not deserve.

Speaking of Sky Sports coverage after the match, Neville expressed his contempt for Ronaldo’s action after the final whistle, which was not a first and suggested that both he and Fernandes should do much more to lift the team’s mood and lead.

Cavani, meanwhile, came in for praise for how he behaved and tried to encourage others.

“At the end of the day, I love that guy [Ronaldo], he’s the best I’ve ever seen in my life sometimes, but do not run away like that. I do not have that “, said a visibly frustrated and annoyed Neville.

“I do not care how you have played, you have to go over and pat the fans at the end of the match. Come over to them, especially when you are the best player in the world, one of the greatest of all time.

“We talked about body language. We talked about it earlier in the season when Ronaldo ran away at the end of the Everton game. He has escaped again. He ran at Watford, when everyone knew the manager would be fired, and at Norwich.

“And there are Fernandes who whine too. They are the two senior players. It’s devastating for younger players when the two best players look at every other player as if they are not good enough.”

Neville said such behavior had “irritated” him over the past two months, using his own experience of having more senior players to guide him through mistakes and difficult times.

“Cavani removes it,” the savvy also explained, pointing out the veteran striker for praise. “I do not think Cavani is withering in Ronaldo’s or Fernande’s presence, I think he is standing up to them and helping other young players on the pitch. He has to be on the pitch.”

At half-time in the match, Neville had not held back in his scathing criticism of the whole team, but dubbed them for a “bunch of bastards”.

“Look at them on that pitch, with their arms in the air, complaining about everything! Honestly, they are absolutely shocking out there in the first half,” he said.

“They fired the last manager! Ralf Rangnick will not be fired, he has only had a few weeks with them, but they will get many managers fired, so much, if they continue like this.
