Gary Neville Believes No One Should Tweak With Manchester United's Philosophy

Gary Neville feels no one shouldn’t tweak with Manchester United’s philosophy ever.

There had been growing concerns during Jose Mourinho’s reign at the club as the Portuguese seemed to have done extensive damage as he had tried to instil a different mindset at the club.

His defensive approach lacked the cutting edge and his famous third season syndrome led to his dismissal from the club finally. Former United forward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was given the charge to turn the tide and the Norwegian has done wonders guiding the club to sixth consecutive victories since he took over.

Being a Red Devils himself the interim manager does understand the values of the club very much and Neville believes it should remain like that. The former right-back said, “No one should ever be allowed to enter Manchester United’s training ground or Old Trafford ever again to shape their own philosophy. That is done.

“Manchester United’s philosophy is so deep and so meaningful, it’s like Barcelona’s and it’s like Ajax’s. At Manchester United you play fast, attacking football in an entertaining way. You bring young players through and give them belief. And you win.

“To be honest with you, the third one sometimes goes in cycles. The winning actually comes as a result of doing the first two right. The third one doesn’t always happen. Sometimes you can go years without winning trophies. You can go years without winning things and picking up titles.

“I supported David Moyes, I supported Louis van Gaal and I supported Jose Mourinho. I thought they would win at the football club and I said it at the time. I’m not sitting here backtracking, thinking Manchester United made a bad decision by appointing Jose Mourinho.

“What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done in a month, irrespective of the how the club do this season, has shown Manchester United that.”
