Neville on Ronaldo’s absence
Man United missing Cristiano Ronaldo through injury for this afternoon’s crunch derby is ‘not a huge loss’, according to Gary Neville
Speaking of Sky Sports, Neville said: “United for the last three or four years, especially under Ole [Gunner Solskjaer] were a counterattack team.
“[They were] really comfortable recline, punching through [Marcus] Rashford and others at the break.”
“And I think it’s going to be the same today and since Cristiano isn’t in the team I could never say it’s positive, but actually I don’t see it as the big loss I could make in other games.
“Because actually I think Manchester United must be dangerous today if Rashford counterattacks up front and they’re better off than if they were with Cristiano I think.”
