‘Nonsense’ to think Mourinho is finished

Goal.com

Ex-Manchester United man Gary Neville feels the suggestion that Jose Mourinho is finished at the top of the game is “nonsense”, reports Goal.com.

The Old Trafford side have endured a testing start to the season under the Portuguese, losing two of four matches in the Premier League amid reported unrest within the club.

An alleged breakdown in the relationship between Mourinho and Paul Pogba has been the topic of much debate, while the manager is also said to be at odds with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over transfers.

The current drama surrounding the club has led to questions – including from club legend Eric Cantona – as to whether Mourinho is the right man for the job, but Neville feels that it is far too early to write off such a decorated figure.

“He’s having a difficult time, but finished? I genuinely think that’s a nonsense,” he told.

“Even Sir Alex Ferguson, from 2003 to 2006 when we didn’t win the league and people said he had lost it, end of an era, he’s finished.

“I think Jose is a brilliant manager and, in a 25-year career, young managers will emerge, people will ask questions if you aren’t successful.

“Believe it or not I liked the Tottenham game (United lost 3-0), certainly the first 40 minutes. I watched the win over Burnley and thought it was really good.

“I think they’ve turned a corner.”

Having ended the 2017-18 season in second place, 19 points behind cross-town rivals City, the pressure is on the Old Trafford side to mount a serious title challenge this campaign.

Neville, however, is not confident that the Red Devils have what it takes to close the gap – or even finish as well as last season.
