Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has slammed France players following their Euro 2020 defeat to Switzerland on Monday night.

Neville said that the match was a mess for France, adding that they were complacent.

Switzerland defeated France 5-4 on penalties in Bucharest, Romania, after Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe saw his spot-kick saved by goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

The match between the two countries ended in a 3-3 draw after 120 minutes at the National Arena.

“I think it was a mess for France tonight, from the first minute,” Neville told ITV.

“They thought they could turn up, be complacent, I felt the way they set up in their system was all wrong, the players didn’t have a clue in the first half what they were doing.

“That was four out of their starting back five, don’t be fooled by their injuries at left-back, that is one position. They were a mess.”

Manchester United ‘Agree £77Million For Jadon Sancho’

Published

By

Manchester United football club of England are reportedly on the verge of signing Jadon Sancho after finally agreeing to pay Borussia Dortmund’s huge £77million asking price.

The England winger was the subject of a £75m offer earlier in the week from United which was swiftly rejected with Dortmund handing United a ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ offer of €90m (£77m) for the 21-year-old.

Now according to a report by reputable German publication, BILD, United have now gone back to Dortmund with a new offer that has met their valuation and the deal could be concluded in the coming days.

The £77m deal would see Sancho become United’s third most-expensive transfer ever, behind Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire.

Dortmund have been desperate for Sancho’s future to be determined before July 23 and are keen for tbe deal to be wrapped up as soon as possible so they can get reinforcements.

United have long been pursuing the 21-year-old forward, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identifying him as his No 1 target last summer.

Personal terms on a five-year contract have already been agreed, meaning there are only formalities left to complete before Sancho can be announced as a Manchester United player.

Sancho will be United’s first big signing of the summer and could be followed through the doors at Old Trafford by a centre-back, the report adds.

Sancho moved to Dortmund in 2017 from Manchester City in an £8m deal as a 17-year-old.

He has scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in 137 Dortmund appearances since, including 16 goals and 20 assists last season in a difficult campaign for the team in 2020-21.
