Gary Neville was left fuming at Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s defending after the Manchester United right-back’s naivety nearly cost his side dearly in Saturday’s derby at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were already trailing as a consequence of Eric Bailly’s early own goal when the Ivory Coast international wildly sliced Joao Cacelo’s cross into his own net.
That goal allowed City the opportunity to dominate possession for the remainder of the opening half, bide their time and wait for the perfect opportunity to strike.
Despite the escape, Neville was rendered nearly speechless by Wan-Bissaka’s indiscipline which mirrored the mistakes United’s defenders made in the recent 5-0 drubbing they suffered at the hands of Liverpool.
Neville said: ‘I have to say it’s a terrible piece of defending from Wan-Bissaka on this side, watch what he does, how can you leave Phil Foden to go and run towards Cancelo. I
‘t’s absolute madness from the right-back. Once he does that Foden’s in.
‘It was a replica of what United were doing against Liverpool, leaving their positions to go and press unrealistically.
‘It’s absolute madness from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, leaving Phil Foden. He didn’t give Bailly a chance.’
