Manchester United legend Phil Neville has urged his former side not sacking manager Jose Mourinho despite club’s poor performances.
Mourinho future at Old Trafford has been under pressure this season following his side’s poor run in his third year at the club.
United have managed just four Premier League wins and one in the Champions League as they lost 1-0 to Juventus on Tuesday night at home.
However, former Red Devils defender Neville has claimed that the club should not sack Mourinho insisting that it’s not the right answer.
“United are tenth in the Premier League,” Neville told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“And you are not tenth in the Premier League if you are then going to go on and win the Champions League.”
“So I think there has to be some realism in terms of where United are at.”
“It is disappointing, it is not something that I think the supporters will accept but sacking Jose Mourinho isn’t the answer.”
“What will that achieve? Someone else will come in and they will have to work with this set of players.”
“I actually think they have got to say: ‘Jose, we are going with you, we are sticking with you, you have to get us out of this, you have got to get us up to the top four, you have got to build confidence’.”
“At the moment I don’t think we are at that point where it is a crisis, it is panic.”
“These players I think over the last three games have improved their performance levels.”
“Tonight they came up against a side that was far superior.”
“Go back to the Premier League at the weekend and I still think United have got the quality to get into the top four, I firmly believe that.”
“But sacking Jose is not the answer.”
Following the 2-2 draw at Chelsea last weekend, United will back in the Premier League action on Sunday afternoon as they will host Everton at Old Trafford.
