"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".

However, his style might be too attritional for a club looking to move on from a manager who picked fights with most of his squad and with the board. Now, if Pogba starts thinking that he's bigger than Mourinho, there's your next problem.

Darren Fletcher backed up Neville's criticism of Pogba, as pundits centred on the France World Cup winner's behaviour at Old Trafford this term. That's a big concern for me.

"Somebody needs to get control of Paul and say, 'Listen, this hasn't been a battle between Mourinho and Pogba and you've won, you've got to go and prove yourself now'".

The club are to make an external appointment as interim boss until the end of the season.

Neville has been one of the club's former stars disappointed with Mourinho's approach, and admitted that he believes Tottenham manager Pochettino is the ideal man to resurrect the Reds.

Pogba's management have since claimed the post was scheduled well ahead of the Mourinho news and was unrelated.

Mourinho won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first season at Old Trafford, before steering the club to a second-place finish a year ago, the highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson won the league in his final season in charge 2013.

'I do worry about the fact you're basically writing off two seasons, ' said Fletcher. As a result, Manchester United will be looking for its fourth manager since 2013. And it's mismanagement at the top level.

"Pochettino has had issues with players and he's dealt with it fantastically". And he seems to have sorted that out. A Premier League victor with the Blues, he is of similar character to Mourinho, which won't play in his favour.

When contacted about Solskjaer's potential return to United, a senior figure at Molde told Metro.co.uk: "we will not comment on this" before adding a smiling face emoji. "In my mind as well, I never thought for one second Jose would leave without winning a title".

Neville hailed Pochettino as the "outstanding candidate" to replace Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Brian McClair, who was with United from 1987 to 1998, said that the changes should only begin with Mourinho.
