News on Man Utd: Gary Neville reveals what the UK players really think of Jose Mourinho Football | Sport

Mourinho is often critical of his Manchester United players in interviews and press conferences. But Neville says he talks to some of the team and is a fan of the Portuguese boss. Neville was discussing the impact of Paul Pogba, who helped France win the World Cup this summer, could have on the spirit in the locker room. And he revealed what the players really think of Mourinho, who saw his team seal a 2-1 victory over Leicester in their opening game of the new season last night. "It was a great example that we saw on social media how he (Pogba) connected the French team to the locker room, he was driving them," said Neville on Sky Sports. "If he can do it and create that spirit in that preparation of the Manchester United room, is what they need. "They do not have a good spirit those players, there's no doubt." I still talk to a couple of players and there's no doubt that Jose Mourinho, this idea about people says "he has no players" – he has players, players like him. "These players are happy in that dressing room, Paul Pogba is really back, really happy this week, excited." Pogba was named captain for the opening of the season of United against Leicester and Neville believes He will hold this role for many years. "He has a great opportunity to captain this club for many years," added the expert. "Forget Barcelona, Forget to go elsewhere, dive nta the leader of this club that brings them back to the top.

A few weeks ago, when Jose Mourinho said he had delivered that list to his CEO to bring those purchases, he was calling him, he was pressurizing the board. "From that moment, obviously, they did not bring these players and I think particularly in the central areas, where it was clear to everyone for 12 months that Manchester United needed an exceptional center -back or two, they did not get that." The last week was a little scab to say the least, "I think the only people who can remove those clouds are the players – they have this opportunity to do it tonight." It will not remove everyone's doubts in terms of what will happen in the coming weeks, but it is certainly a beginning. "
