has questioned ’s decision to sell Anthony Elanga after the winger impressed against his former club, starring in a 2-1 victory.

The Sweden international was deemed surplus to requirements in the summer, despite having featured prominently during the early months of ’s tenure.

Elanga, who cost Forest just 15million, was keen to leave in search of regular first team football and has enhanced his reputation despite his new side’s struggles.

The 21-yerar-old’s rapid improvement has only served to place extra focus on United’s decision to invest so heavily in the likes of Antony and Jadon Sancho, while letting an academy graduate depart for a relatively modest fee.

England international Sancho has spent the majority of the season in exile having refused to apoligise to his manager.

Antony, meanwhile, lasted just 54 minutes at the City Ground before succumbing to injury and finished 2023 with just one club goal to his name.

Elanga, by contrast, played a crucial role in both of Forest’s goals in what was Nuno Espirito’s first home win in charge of the Tricky Trees.

‘You have to question whether he’s better than some of the ones he’s left behind,’ Neville told Sky Sports.

‘The money they’ve spent in wide areas. Sancho was £70-odd million, Antony £90m and Elanga gone!’
