Gary Neville showed his bias while speaking on Sky Sports’ The Big Debate by saying that he believes Manchester United will win the Premier League again before Liverpool.
Liverpool are eight points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table and are a mind-boggling 15 points above United.
This would be impressive enough if it were the end of the season but only eight games have passed. In fact, the Reds finished 31 points above Solskjaer’s side last season and are likely to repeat that feat this season as well.
Neville insinuating that Manchester United are likely to win the league before the Reds is simply biased and born out of bitterness at seeing Jurgen Klopp’s side reach heights that United are light years away from matching.
“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,” he told Sky Bet’s The Big Debate.
“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.
“I can guarantee you as clear as day, Manchester United will win again. They’ll probably win the league before Liverpool, in my opinion. And that’s not being disrespectful, they’ll probably win the league before Liverpool.”
