Gary Neville has claimed that he has a ‘clear idea’ of who the club’s next manager should be.

After having enjoyed decades of success and dominance under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devils have genuinely struggled on the pitch since the Scot’s retirement.

Both David Moyes and Louis van Gaal were handed the chance to get the Old Trafford outfit back amongst the elite, but the duo failed to do well enough to revive Manchester United’s fortunes.

However, the case seems to be different under Jose Mourinho. With the Portuguese at the helm, United managed to win three trophies – including their first ever Europa League title – in his debut season, and the team has only improved in quality in the ongoing campaign.

With the 20-time Premier League champions improving steadily, their former right-back and current Sky pundit Gary Neville has had his say about Mourinho as well as the man he thinks should take over from the ex-Chelsea gaffer.

The Englishman stated (via Yahoo Sport): “The idea of sitting here as a pundit and ex-professional and saying ‘I think he should be the next manager’ [doesn’t interest me].

“I do have an opinion on my own club, but I’m not willing to share it with you because I want Jose Mourinho to continue. I have a very clear idea of who I think the next Manchester United manager should be, but I want Jose Mourinho to be successful first before that happens.

“I believe he will be successful because he’s always been successful wherever he goes. However, I believed that David Moyes and Louis van Gaal would be successful, because I am a fan of the club and I have to believe in the club’s managers as a fan.

“You sometimes lose that faith over a period of time watching them, but on the other hand, from a point of view of Jose, now that he’s been supported with a new contract and he’s been supported with investment in the transfer market, the club need to now go the whole hog and make sure they support him in the future, for the next year or two, to be able to win that league.”
