Manchester United have had an extremely tough time of things in the Premier League recently, with Jose Mourinho without a win in that competition since before the international break. I’ve no doubt things will turn around sooner or later, and it’s clear Gary Neville has that same thought process.
The United hero reckons that things are going bad at the moment, and the self-proclaimed Special One is under some heavy pressure. However, he believes Jose will get it right, and a couple of wins on the spin will definitely ease things up significantly.
“I think at the moment he’s the one that’s getting put under pressure, but nothing that two or three wins won’t change,” he said.
“I have to say I thought they deserved to win (against Burnley), they didn’t play badly at all. It wasn’t an ‘oh they’re not playing for him, they’re not with him’. There’s none of that.
“I think when he was at Chelsea there’s all that talk he’d lost the dressing room. There’s nothing like that happening at Manchester United.”
At the end of the day, we all know just how talented of a manager Jose Mourinho is. He has won everything there is to be won in the game, and you suddenly don’t become a bad coach overnight.
Yes, the results haven’t been quite what we wanted recently, but we have to stay behind him and get behind his players and squad. The Burnley game could’ve been about five or six nil, and it’s not his fault that Zlatan Ibrahimovic couldn’t hit a barn door with a banjo.
