Gary Neville has never had any problem delivering in-depth analysis of Premier League football games.

But the former Manchester United defender showed off his more succinct side with a tweet in the wake of the Red Devils’ 2-1 loss to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Neville, who had been working alongside Jamie Carragher for Sky Sports‘ coverage of United’s game, kept his post-match views on the game short and sweet.

Speaking live on TV after the loss, Neville urged manager Louis van Gaal to seriously consider bolstering his squad before the close of the transfer window at 18:00 BST on Tuesday.

The former England defender feels that the Red Devils are in dire need of attacking reinforcements to help Wayne Rooney, and also urged the Dutchman to finalise the David De Gea situation once and for all.

Neville said on Sky Sports: “They’ve not got enough cutting edge. They haven’t got players who can beat players in the final third, they don’t create enough.”

He continued: “They need to sort the goalkeeper situation out. That’s a big problem.

“Manchester United need to sign a new striker, keep De Gea and now that Jonny Evans has gone, ideally a centre back too, in the next few days.”

Sunday’s loss left United fifth in the Premier League table
