Man United legend Gary Neville warns his former club that full-backs Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles will be ‘EXPOSED’ under Ralf Rangnick’s system and will need ‘a few months’ to adjust before facing either Man City or Liverpool
- Gary Neville believes Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles will soon get ‘exposed’
- United edged past Norwich City on Saturday but were far from convincing
- Neville says United are not tough to play against and need to make adjustments
- He feels full-backs will be pinned down by the quality of Man City or Liverpool
Gary Neville has voiced his concern over certain Manchester United players still being some way off being able to cope in Ralf Rangnick’s system.
The German has now taken full charge of United on an interim basis and has won two of his three games in charge, though Saturday’s recent slender 1-0 victory over strugglers Norwich has not inspired confidence.
Speaking via Sky Sports, Neville outlined that he was not convinced by his former club, while highlighting that players like Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles in the full-back positions are going to take some time to adapt.

Neville feels United must use the few months they have before next facing Man City or Liverpool
‘It wasn’t a good performance,’ Neville admitted.
‘Against any other team in the league that would have caused them problems. If they go to Brentford and play like that they’re in trouble. He’ll take that week all day long, two 1-0 wins.
‘It was Norwich’s lack of quality. Today I thought that any other team in the league that had any sort of quality about them would have caused real problems.
‘The one thing that Ralf Rangnick had to try and fix first was the defensive problems, and make them tougher to play against. I don’t think they were tough to play against today.
Rangnick is already making adjustments and has two wins from his three matches so far
‘The big mystery of today for me is why Manchester United were so lacking in energy. I thought they would be a lot better than that after having a free week to prepare. We’ll know a little bit more on Tuesday night.
Rangnick is still finding out about his players. I do think there will be a problem with this system when they play against a team with good full-backs who have got more quality. Dalot and Telles will basically get exposed.
‘Fernandes and Sancho won’t be able to get out in time by the time a Cancelo or a Robertson or an Alexander-Arnold are running down the wing. But they’ve got a few months before they play those types of players.
‘I think by then they would’ve changed things around a little bit, he’ll have got to know the players. I think it’s been a good start from the fact they’ve won both games, they needed to win games and build confidence in the new coach
