Gary Neville has told Manchester United to employ a coach who has the ability to manage the dressing room if Jose Mourinho is sacked.
It was reportedly suggested that the former Chelsea boss would be sacked last weekend after United’s Premier League clash with Newcastle United.
The pressure on Mourinho was now relented by his side’s 3-2 win over the Magpies on Saturday evening.
Meanwhile, United legend Neville has addressed club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward telling him that the problem is in the dressing room.
The Red Devils icon said: “It comes to a point where this would be the fourth manager in six years.”
“You have to look at who is bringing them in. The dressing room is leading what is happening. The tail is wagging the dog.”
“Get some control back. Get some leadership. Undermining Jose on the eve of the season on why he couldn’t sign those centre-backs – who is qualified in that football club to tell Mourinho he cannot get them?”
“It’s difficult running a football club, playing in a team but you have to operate in the right manner. But right now it’s rotten to the core and it has to be coming from the top.”
“The people in the boardroom at this moment in time are nowhere near good enough. They are playing football manager with the biggest club in the world.”
“I hope Jose is there next week because I actually like him. I am sad if he goes and I have to say looking at his face he looked tired, fed up and beaten. The players look like they have had enough and I know some of the players. They aren’t bad lads.”
“They knew what they were getting when they signed Mourinho. He doesn’t back down from confrontation and he wants a team that can win now. They undermined him in the summer and you cannot undermine the manager, simple as that.”
