Manchester United legend Gary Neville has launched a scathing attack on the club following news that manager Jose Mourinho would be sacked after the Red Devils’ Premier League meeting with Newcastle United on Saturday.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville spoke about his boyhood club to Sky Sports as he added that he was angry at the idea that reports of the manager’s sack will be leaked before an official announcement.
The retired England international right-back further stated that he doesn’t know if the report of Mourinho’s imminent sack is true and that there’s something rotten to the core about Manchester United.
Gary Neville, 43, also questioned the club’s decision not to support Mourinho’s bid to sign a centre back during the summer’s transfer window.
Manchester United were linked with several defenders, including Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich centre back Jerome Boateng, Harry Maguire of Leicester City and Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin.
Gary Neville, who won 16 trophies at the club, was reacting to a report which claimed that Jose Mourinho will be sacked after the Newcastle United game.
In recent years, the dismissals of former Manchester United managers like David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal were made public before any official announcement from the club.
