It Will Take More Than Money To Fix Manchester United's Problems [OPINION]

Gary Neville, a fellow Sky Sports pundit, has been ridiculed by Jamie Carragher after the latter left Jadon Sancho out of his first-choice Manchester United starting lineup. Sancho was benched for Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani, and Paul Pogba during a Q&A with football fans, and Neville was asked to identify the perfect lineup he would want to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pick for the rest of the season.

Another point of view that surprised Carragher was Pogba's selection as a central midfielder rather than the wide role he has played for the Red Devils in recent weeks. Cristiano Ronaldo was also selected as a left winger rather than a center forward, while Edinson Cavani was promoted to Neville's starting eleven despite the fact that the 34-year-old has yet to score this season.

'So is Pogba not a left winger anymore @GNev,' Carragher tweeted, interjecting in the fan Q&A. You mentioned that the club was desperate for a right winger, yet he doesn't play. You've also got Ronaldo out wide. That's not a team Ossie Ardiles would choose.' 'Just having fun with the fans James,' Neville responded directly to Carragher's criticisms.

New £73 million deal Sancho has fallen out of favor with Neville following a dismal start to the season, in which he has yet to score or provide an assist. The 21-year-old, who has 20 assists in his past two seasons at Borussia Dortmund, has made seven appearances for United this season but is yet to make an impact at Old Trafford. Sancho has been benched for United's next two Premier League games against West Ham and Aston Villa after being sent off in the first half of their Champions League clash against Young Boys. David de Gea was kept in goal following an impressive start to the season by Neville's ideal Manchester United squad, with Dean Henderson having to settle with a spot on the former Manchester United defender's bench.
