Man Utd Need Defensive Revamp After Barcelona Thrashing

Manchester United legend Gary Neville is certain that his former club needs defensive reinforcements after the thrashing handed out to them by their Champions League opponents Barcelona.

Both teams met in the quarterfinals of the competition but the Spaniards showed their clash at the expense of Manchester United with a 3-0 victory and a 4-0 aggregate win to secure a semifinal berth.

While speaking on the disappointing loss suffered by Manchester United, former Red Devils right-back Gary told BeIN Sports that his former club will have to improve their squad defensively.

According to him, Manchester United need a defensive revamp to be able to compete with big clubs like Barcelona.

Gary Neville also said that current Red boss and former Manchester United teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a lot of work to do in terms of squad reinforcement ahead of next season.

The Manchester United defence was not able to withstand the star quality of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi who scored a first-half brace to set his team on their way to victory.

Messi scored the first goal on 16 minutes before he added a second goal some four minutes later.

Philippe Coutinho wrapped up the dominant win over Manchester United with a fine goal in the second half.
