Garry Neville insists that Mourinho should remain at the club, despite his been humiliated by Tottenham on Monday night. The Red Devils were humbled for the second consecutive game, as Mauricio Pochetinno’s men ran riot 3-0 at the Theatre of dreams. The Spur’s supporter did not help matters as chants of “you are getting sacked in the morning” was heard to pile more pressure on the under fire manager.
Mixed feelings were felt at the end of 90 minutes as the club record a back to back loss, and this have raised uncertainty over Jose Mourinho’s future at the club. Garry Neville however, believes the former Chelsea tactician have a huge a job to change the fortunes of the club.
“We saw Louis van Gaal sacked after an FA Cup final victory, we saw David Moyes sacked with four games to go of a season, so we are no longer talking about a club that is behaving as it has historically done,” he told Sky’s Monday Night Football. “I accept these are different times and I accept the difficulties and challenges, but my honest view as I stand here now is that Ed Woodward gave him a contract last season … he should see that contract through to the end and do the job”. “You can’t keep jumping around with managers”.
Neville however admitted the Portuguese faces his biggest challenge in his managerial era.
“Jose Mourinho has been the most successful manager along with Pep Guardiola in the last 20 years in football and he is going through a difficult moment now over the last couple of seasons with Manchester United”.
“This is now the biggest task he has had in his life and the biggest challenge he has had in football”. “He has got to come out of it because I have to say I look at the squad and the team and I’m not sure what the best XI is”. “He is going to have to back certain players and just stick with it because at the moment they are changing every game. “The buck stops with the manager, it always does and it has to. At the moment there doesn’t look to be a balanced outfit there at all.”
