Gary Neville tells Jose Mourinho to sell players who do not fit club’s profile

Mourinho signed Bailly, Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan and Pogba in his first transfer window at United.


Man U legend Gary Neville has urged Jose Mourinho to sanction the sale of players, who do not fit the profile at Old Trafford. He also went on to explain that his former employers failed to utilise the funds at their disposal in making quality additions to the squad, since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

The Scot stepped down from his post after guiding the Red Devils to their 20th league title in May 2013. David Moyes and Louis van Gaal were at the helm in the last three seasons and the latter spent heavily in the transfer window during his time at the club.

Van Gaal was sacked in May this year and was replaced by Jose Mourinho. The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager helped United make four quality additions, including the likes of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba. The latter arrived at Old Trafford from Juventus for a world-record fee of £89m ($115m) in August.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has allowed only Paddy McNair to leave on a permanent transfer. Neville claims there are players at the club, who need to be shown the exit door following some "bad spending" since Ferguson’s retirement.

"He’s unravelling what’s gone on here in the last three years with what I think has been bad spending by the club, simple as that. Now he is trying to correct it," Neville explained, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

"I do like two or three players that he has signed this time. I like Pogba, he will come good, I like the fact Zlatan’s got a big character, I like Bailly.

"I think there are players there that have got the profile that fit the Manchester United stature but there are still some here that haven’t got the profile," he added.
