Manchester United legend Gary Neville has accused the Glazers of being “out of a job” after Old Trafford was ruled out as a venue for Euro 2028.
United’s home has been abandoned as the host venue for the UK and Ireland’s Euro 2028 bid.
Manchester City’s Etihad played their last game while Old Trafford were out of the game.
The Daily Mail reports that insiders believe the Etihad is a more modern stadium, while Old Trafford has the biggest capacity and needs major upgrades.
People’s Person reported the decision this week and the club’s excuses for the failure.
Potential infrastructure changes to the Red Devils’ iconic home are currently on hold as the club takes control.
Neville told the Daily Mail: “The Glazer family have been alarmed by the lack of investment in Old Trafford for years. They have been in decline for almost 20 years, from one of the best stadiums in the world to one that doesn’t even make the top 10 in England and Ireland.
“This is an all-time low. It’s a joke to say it’s not in the top 10 for setting up a tournament. No investment has been made. It is a rusty stadium. This is dereliction of duty. It’s a shame.”
The former defender has laid down the law and says there is no place for the Glazers to remain Manchester United’s keeper.
They have called for the process to be fast-tracked to have new owners before the start of the summer transfer window. The People’s Man details Neville’s thoughts on the Glazers’ third-round bid.
“There are still suggestions they won’t sell and will instead take a part-investment. They need to get out as soon as possible to get new owners in and bring United back to where they are – on and off the pitch.”
The selected English venues include Wembley, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Villa Park and St James’ Park.
Whoever replaces him at the helm of the Glazers is thought to be working to either refurbish Old Trafford on a grand scale or build an entirely new stadium.
