Neville hails Manchester United victory over Liverpool: Mourinho showing faith in kids

Manchester United legend Gary Neville was impressed by their victory over Liverpool yesterday.

United boss Jose Mourinho has faced criticism this season for the style of play employed at Old Trafford but Neville thought United ticked plenty of boxes during the last week in terms of what he wants to see from a United team.

He told The Gary Neville Podcast: “When I think of Manchester United I think of entertainment, young players and winning.

“Mourinho has always been accused of not bringing young players through. Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard all played today. Not many managers would have given McTominay a chance today after Monday night.

“Mourinho is showing faith in the youth team. There was entertainment today and excitement in the way United went forward. Mourinho is still coming to terms with the club – not in terms of the size of it, he knows how to handle a big club, just in terms of this squad and trying to mold them into something he likes.”
