Manchester United news: Gary Neville defends Jose Mourinho and criticizes Ed Woodward

Manchester United succumbed to yet another defeat in the Barclay’s premier League with a 3-1 lose to West Ham on Saturday.


Following the humiliating defeat, reports from the old Trafford camp are already suggesting that Mourinho could be axed anytime for his role in what is now the club’s worst start to a season for 29 years.


But it is not all bad news for Mourinho and his men as one of the most influential voices in Manchester, Gary Neville, came out publicly to defend the team.   


Replying to a suggestions  that Murinho is to blame for the current crisis at United, the former red devils insists the club’s chiefs should be in the spotlight instead of Mourinho. He tweeted:   “It’s not the manager it’s the lack of football leadership above him. They are bouncing all over the place with no plan!”


Neville believes United are yet to find a leader to instill the values that Alex Ferguson built, insisting United’s woes can be traced back to the 2014 shambolic sacking of David Moyes as the club’s manager. He wrote on twitter:  “This mess started when United sacked David Moyes after 8 months and we lost all sense of the values that the club had been built on for 100 years,”
