Man Utd's lack of investment in Old Trafford 'unforgivable' with City 'miles ahead on and off pitch', rages Gary Neville | The Sun

GARY NEVILLE has blasted the "unforgivable" manner in which Manchester United have been allowed to fall behind rivals City and Liverpool "on and off the pitch".

Protests against the Glazer family's ownership have intensified, with more demonstrations planned for their next match against Liverpool on Monday.

Appearing on Steven Bartlett's The Diary of a CEO podcast, Neville blasted the Glazer family for allowing United to "rot" over the last two decades.

He added: "Manchester City are lightyears ahead on and off the pitch.

"Tottenham have invested £1.3billion in a new stadium that's out of this world. It's a museum, it's the best in the world.

"And if you go to their training ground, it's an amazing, brilliant facility which is far better than Carrington where we moved to in 2000.

"In 20 years, Manchester United have not invested in the stadium, and they've not invested in the training ground that much. It's a club that's really struggling.

"And I've said in the last couple of years that the only thing I think can change it now is the ownership.
