Gary Neville makes prediction about Man United next season

Gary Neville looks ahead to Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at Manchester United

Gary Neville believes that the arrival of Jose Mourinho and the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba will give Manchester United a significant boost ahead of the new season.

The Red Devils are currently preparing for their first campaign under Mourinho following his appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.

United won their first piece of silverware under their new manager on Sunday as they beat Leicester City 2-1 to lift the Community Shield at Wembley.

Pogba is set to be United’s fourth summer signing as Mourinho moved quickly to revamp his squad at Old Trafford.

And former United defender Neville has given his seal of approval for what he has seen from the Red Devils in the summer months.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ, Neville said: “It’s important, not just for United, that they sign players of stature and personality.

“With Mourinho going there, and now with Zlatan and Pogba, they have players who can fill the shirt, they will stick their shoulders out.

“They will have the strength and personality, which is what Manchester United haves lacked for two or three years.

“Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra among others left, they had big personalities and they were propping the club up in the changing rooms.

“You need big shoulders and guts to play for Manchester United. The idea of Zlatan and Pogba returning there is big on the personality front.”
