Gary Neville has backed plans to renovate Manchester United’s home stadium, Old Trafford. He believes the current structure has fallen behind the curve and needs to be upgraded.

 

Last year, Joel Glazer confirmed at a Fans Forum that plans were being implemented to redevelop Old Trafford. According to reports, the plans were now being finalized, and the entire stadium could be demolished and rebuilt.

 

He said:

 

“There is a story emerging from Old Trafford that they might rebuild the entire stadium and I have just been asked what I think of it. I actually think that it would be the right move. I think by the time that they have spent money on Old Trafford, the existing one, then I think you would be better off building a brand new, better, super stadium.”

I do think that Manchester United should always be at the forefront of stadiums, have the best facilities and they have fallen behind,” he added.

 

“Not particularly, no. I do think it is time for them to sell. They have overstayed their welcome. I think the fact that they said they would engage with the fans about three, four or five months ago and they haven’t since is not good enough,” said Neville.
