Mourinho should not be sacked, despite 3-0 Spurs defeat – Neville

Despite the seeming crisis engulfing Old Trafford at the moment, Gary Neville thinks that Manchester United should stick by beleaguered boss Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start with a 2-1 win over Leicester, but have since shipped six goals in their last two games, slipping to defeats against Brighton and Tottenham.

The 3-0 defeat to Spurs on Monday Night has ramped up the pressure on Jose Mourinho, with some fans and pundits calling for his head, but one man who thinks that United should stick by their manager is former club captain Gary Neville, who wants Mourinho to see out the remaining two years on his contract:

“We saw Louis van Gaal sacked after an FA Cup final victory, we saw David Moyes sacked with four games to go of a season, so we are no longer talking about a club that is behaving as it has historically done,” he told Sky Sports Monday Night Football.

“I accept these are different times and I accept the difficulties and challenges, but my honest view as I stand here now is that Ed Woodward gave him a contract last season … he should see that contract through to the end and do the job.

“You can’t keep jumping around with managers.”
