Neville called for help from the Premier League for future situations like this, that the decisions are not left up to the club to investigate.
He explained: “Of issues of this importance and severity they should be dealt with independently by a panel. Its clear Macnhester United to not have the skill and the ability to deal with their ability properly.”
Jamie Carragher added: “However Manchester United have got to the decision, it is right. The right decision has been made that he doesn’t play for Manchester United again.
“But I do feel the public opinion, a story being leaked in the past couple of weeks come out caused a big stir as well, that has almost forced Manchester United’s hand.
“You are almost thinking what decision United may have come to if the stories hadn’t been leaked.”
Carragher was referring to reports via The Athletic last week which detailed United considering re-integrating Greenwood into the first team squad.
Indeed the language in the statement from United, suggested that the club were disappointed not to be able to bring him back, citing external pressures making it impossible to do so.
Greenwood himself issued a statement in which he expressed regret for the situation, accepting United’s decison, while maintaining his innocence.
