Gary Neville sends stern warning to Jose Mourinho about Man United next season
The Red Devils legend warns Jose Mourinho that Manchester United need to win the title next term
Gary Neville has warned Jose Mourinho that Manchester United need to win the Premier League title next season.
The Red Devils endured a mixed second campaign under Jose Mourinho despite significant investment in the transfer market.
Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC.
Mourinho’s side still ended up 19 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City in a one-sided title race.
Manchester United lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last weekend following Eden Hazard’s winner.
As a result, Mourinho and his Manchester United squad ended the campaign without any silverware.
Former Manchester United defender Neville warned Mourinho that winning the title must be a priority next season.
“Go and win the title,” Neville told Sky Sports. “That’s what every Man United player, fan and Jose Mourinho wants.”
Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson won his 13th and final top-flight crown.
The Red Devils suffered a surprise 2-1 loss to La Liga side Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 earlier this year.
Manchester United signed Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
