Duncan Castles has criticised Gary Neville once again for failing to sufficiently address the problems at Manchester United during a recent interview with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
This isn’t the first time the pair have locked horns, and we doubt it will be the last either.
At the beginning of the month, following United’s not-so-shocking defeat to Newcastle, the Sunday Times journalist took issue with Neville’s analysis of the current state of the club. Castles’ main point of concern was the former United defender’s unwillingness to address Solskjaer’s culpability for the club’s demise, and quite rightly so.

It’s worth noting that Neville was never overly keen to criticise Jose Mourinho either, so it was always going to be unlikely that he’d be willing to grill the man that helped immortalise the Class of ’92 with his iconic goal in the 1999 Champions League final.
This doesn’t hide the fact that United have only won twice in their previous 13 Premier League games under Solskjaer, as Castles has expertly pointed out…
‘I think the reason I’ve been critical is that I’ve seen a new manager come in and get rid of the previous manager’s players, as well as the previous strategy and style of play.’
Yet still zero criticism of the actions of a Manchester Utd manager who has won 2 of 13 PL games? https://t.co/OXI7R3cbra

At one stage of the interview, Neville asks Solskjaer: “What message have you got for the fans? At the moment, they’re a little concerned with the position in the league and not necessarily the performances but the results.
What would you say to them to settle them down in terms of what is going to happen over the next 18 months? When are United going to be challenging again?!”
The inclusion of ‘little concerned’ perhaps being the understatement of the century.
