Do Utd Take The FA Cup Seriously?

Do Utd Take The FA Cup Seriously?

Gary Neville has hit out at press media that say Man Utd don't take the FA Cup seriously.

United took the decision not to play in the competition six years ago and instead take up an invitation to play in the World Club Championship in Brazil. The first team to turn down the chance to play in the competition, and that seems to have stuck like glue.

Neville: 'Manchester United are the most successful club in FA Cup history. People who say we do not take the FA Cup seriously do not have the facts to back it up.

'I don't know where these rumours start. Maybe it was when we didn't play because of the World Club Championship but I don't believe any other team in the same situation could have done it any differently.

'I know we were criticised but the players would have liked to do both - and so would the manager. There was huge pressure to play in the World Club Championship and I don't see how we can be criticised.'
