Zidane Warned Over Taking Over At Man United After Mourinho’s Sack
Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has issued out warning to former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane over taking the Red Devils job.
Neville issued out the warning after United sacked manager, Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.
Zidane has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the past few months.
Neville has now warned Zidane to make sure he has “his own ground rules” and the “correct” support at the club if he eventually takes United job, else he will not succeed.
“Zinedine Zidane has won three European Cups in the last four seasons,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“From that point of view, I don’t think anyone could argue with his pedigree.
“He’s been world class on the pitch, he’s been world class in the dugout at Real Madrid. He wouldn’t be my choice in the sense I would choose Mauricio Pochettino… but on the other hand you couldn’t argue with the introduction of Zinedine Zidane because of his record in the past four years.
“What I would say at this moment in time, any manager coming into that football club needs to make sure they come in with their own ground rules. Make sure the support around them is correct or they won’t succeed.
“If Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are buying better players, getting the first in on players, a better recruitment department and better support network, then they’ll still do better.
“Clubs outspent United for many, many years 10, 12 years ago and Manchester United were still winning leagues. It’s not always about the amount of money you throw at it, there needs to be something more than that.”
Man United will now tackle Cardiff City this weekend in the Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.
