Neville blasts Man Utd wall for ‘never being big enough’ after costly Crystal Palace draw

Gary Neville slammed Manchester United’s wall for not being ‘big enough’ to stop Michael Olise’s stunning free-kick.

WHAT HAPPENED? Olise robbed Manchester United of two points with the goal of his life to secure a 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park on Wout Weghorst’s debut. David de Gea placed just three players Casemiro, Fred and Alejandro Garnacho in his wall but and Olise’s strike flew over the trio and dipped just in time to nestle into the top corner. Neville was frustrated with the Red Devils’ wall and took to social media after the match to express his annoyance.

WHAT THEY SAID: “That wall was never big enough. Always going to shoot,” he wrote on Twitter. “Put the taker off !!! A massive wall with big players in makes it more difficult for a taker! That wall lacked presence and made it look inviting!”
