I play hard, but…”I’m not good enough to play at Manchester United”

The first half ended 0-0 after a close game. The opening goal did not come until the middle of the second half. It was for Newcastle. In the 20th minute of the second half, Alain Saint-Maximin headed a cross from the right side, and Joe Willock finished it with a header to split the net. United pulled the reins of the attack for an equalizer, but rather, Callum Wilson scored an extra goal at the end of the second half. The match ended in a 0-2 defeat for United.
It is Manchester United who lost an important game. Manchester United are competing for the top four with Newcastle and Tottenham Hotspur. A win in this match would have given them a competitive advantage, but United missed this opportunity.
After the game, Neville criticized his former team. He especially pointed out that Verhost’s lack of skills. Verhorst caught the eye of Manchester United, who wanted striker resources, and transferred to Manchester United in the transfer window last winter. Although he is showing a good figure in the situation of his vigorous activity, defensive participation, and competition with the opponent’s defense, he is not performing well in terms of scoring that Man United expected.
Neville told the UK’s ‘Sky Sports’, “Verhost plays at his best, but he lacks the skills to play for Manchester United. He fills the vacancy of the injured Anthony Martial. We really don’t have a striker in the team because we sent you away. You have to have good strikers to get good results.”
Consistently plagued by criticism, Verhost is expected to leave Manchester United at the end of the season. United still want a striker and plan to sign players other than Verhost. Currently, with Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimen emerging as strong candidates, there is little talk of extending Verhost’s contract.
