Neville reacts to the brilliant newest Liverpool arrival
Gary Neville has claimed that Man United didn’t need to sign another attacker this January window after missing out on Liverpool signing Cody Gakpo
Gakpo is one of the most exciting young players in world football and a man that both Liverpool and Man United wanted to battle each other over.
But The Netherlands international sealed a move to Liverpool before the transfer window officially opened up in a deal worth £37million – and has been hailed as a greta signing for the Reds.
Neville however insists ten Hag’s side simply don’t need another attacker in the Mould of Gakpo, with United already stocked with players who thrive coming in off the left.
‘I think it fits the profile of what Liverpool have tried to sign in Mane, Salah and Jota,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
‘That kind of £40m bracket of signing, what Jurgen Klopp said over there we normally get good value out of our signings and improve them and that’s the most important thing, when he works with potential.
‘Nunez is different in terms of the fee but we talked about that the other day, the raw attributes, speed, agility, willingness, great ethic and you work with Jurgen Klopp for two or three years he’s developed players who have been good at others clubs, in Salah and Mane, into world class players so he’s coming to a club with a proven track record of that.
‘In terms of the Manchester United side of things, I saw him at the World Cup I actually didn’t think Manchester United did need [him], I know a lot of fans have been disappointed.
‘But with Rashford, Garnacho, Sancho, Antony, Jurgen Klopp said himself he’s better off that left side, you can say Martial as well so from that rivalry, I think Liverpool do need him.
‘I wasn’t as disappointed as a United fan from watching in the World Cup because I thought he was a similar player to what they had.’
