Louis van Gaal has questioned Gary Neville’s credentials as a pundit after the Manchester United legend questioned his former side’s performance at Southampton.

The Red Devils edged to an unconvincing 2-1 victory over the Saints courtesy of strikes either side of half-time from Netherlands international Robin van Persie.

Former United right-back Neville claimed that Van Gaal’s side managed to get “away with murder” after collecting three points despite a lacklustre performance.

But Red Devils boss Van Gaal, who signed a three-year deal at Old Trafford in May, raised doubts over Neville as a pundit.

“The former player of United?” said Van Gaal when asked about Neville’s comments.

“That’s an English expression? Hmm: maybe (United got away with murder).

“He can say everything because he is an ex-legend, but as an ex-legend, or a legend, you have to know what you are saying.
“You can interpret: make an interpretation of that.

“It’s not so difficult to make an interpretation, when I say he has to pay attention to his words.”
