Gary Neville sends Man United warning to Jose Mourinho
The Manchester United legend admits Jose Mourinho needs to win the Premier League title next term
Gary Neville has warned Jose Mourinho that he will need to lead Manchester United to the Premier League title next season.
The Red Devils made an improvement in the Premier League this season after Mourinho’s side finished in the runners up spot following a sixth-placed finish last term.
Manchester United secured a place in the Champions League and finished in second place ahead of Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur.
However, the Red Devils ended up 19 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City to highlight the gap between the derby rivals.
Manchester United can still finish the season with some silverware if the Red Devils manage to beat Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley next weekend.
Mourinho guided Manchester United to the Europa League and League Cup trophies in his first season in charge of the Old Trafford outfit.
Former Manchester United defender Neville challenged Mourinho to win the Premier League title with the Red Devils next term or risk his future at the club.
“These two managers have been at Real Madrid and Barcelona and both won leagues there,” Neville told the Daily Mail.
“Ultimately at the end of next season if Pep wins another league that will be a big problem over a three year period but if Jose was to win the league next year you could actually argue Jose has done the better job. Next season will be critical.”
Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when the Red Devils won their 13th top-flight crown under Sir Alex Ferguson.
The 20-time English champions were 2-1 winners against Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final.
