So the idea that Manchester United can become an emergency team with Cristiano in advance will never come true. He didn’t put pressure 10-15 years ago, “Neville said.
The former Manchester United captain has described the Red Devils as a “counterattack team”. Neville also warned that despite the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo, his former team could fight semi-decent teams that play on their own on the counter.
