Manchester United fan favourite Gary Neville has insisted Jose Mourinho will be successful again, backing him to recover from a poor start to the season.
The Portuguese manager is under tremendous pressure to turn things around as his side are currently mid-table.
United lost to the likes of Brighton, Tottenham and West Ham whilst drawing with Chelsea and Wolves and now find themselves well below initial season expectations.
Neville though believes it’s not an unsuccessful period in the club’s history and that Mourinho prove his worth once more if given the time to do so.
Fans are quickly losing their patience however and if matters remain as they are then the former Chelsea man could end up losing his job. regardless.
According to Goal, Gary said: “Forget everything else. If Jose Mourinho left Manchester United today then in his two-and-a-half years he will have won two major trophies, lost an FA Cup final, finished second in the league and qualified for the Champions League two seasons running.
“And had the best finish in the Premier League since Sir Alex retired. It is only a period in a 20-year management career and I think Jose will be successful again.
“If you look at the last five years since Sir Alex finished, an FA Cup, a Europa League, a League Cup, and FA Cup final, that’s three trophies in five years since Sir Alex Ferguson left.
“Liverpool haven’t won a trophy, Tottenham haven’t won a trophy, Arsenal: two cups. Manchester United are more successful than all of them.”
It had seemed as though Jose sparked the Red Devils into life after a superb comeback win vs Newcastle and then a subsequent draw with an undefeated Chelsea.
However, the loss to Juventus was as poor as any performance supporters have witnessed all season and so the previous two matches could have been false dawns.
Manchester United face Everton next and have to grab all three points if they want to have any hopes of squeezing into the Champions League spots before the season ends.
