Ex-Red believes Jose Mourinho will lift Manchester United.



Former England international Phil Neville is convinced Jose Mourinho will guide Manchester United to Premier League success, and the United fans should enjoy the "adventure" journey".

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss was hired by the Red Devils last week to replace Louis van Gaal, after two campaigns under the Dutchman.

However, Neville who is excited about the appointment said Mournho is the perfect man to lead United.

"I'm excited for the season ahead. With Jose, win, lose or draw, it's going to be an adventure and a journey," Neville told the official United website.

"Maybe the United fans need that now. They need lifting, they need a spark and someone who will keep them on the edge all the time.

"This club keeps you on the edge; you don't know whether it's going to go one way or the other in games. That's what was so great about Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Whatever ride Jose takes the United fans on, I think they'll enjoy it.

"This club has always had that mystique and specialness about it where you're not quite sure where you're going, but you're going to aim for the best.

"He's the best manager and his record tells you he gets results and wins championships, and it's probably about time United started winning championships again."
