“United don’t need a big name manager”

Gary_3031711Gary Neville has insisted United don’t need to replace David Moyes with a “big name” manager, as the club’s aura should in itself be enough to attract world class players at Old Trafford.

Ryan Giggs has been appointed as interim manager until the end of the season and will take charge of his first ever game as Manchester United manager on Saturday when Norwich visit Old Trafford, but the club is looking to appoint a world class manager ahead of next season, with Louis Van Gaal and Carlo Ancelotti seemingly among the favourites to replace Moyes.

Neville, who attacked the club for the way they handled Moyes’ sacking, has said that United don’t need a “figurehead” in the form of a high-calibre European manager, despite for one between Ancelotti, Van Gaal, Diego Simeone, Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp to be appointed.

“The suggestion that they need a big manager to attract players to the club, I find that a bit sad to be fair,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“The idea that Manchester United Football Club need to have a sort-of figurehead to be able to attract players is a nonsense as far as I’m concerned.

“Manchester United, as a football club, is big enough in its own right to be able to attract players – and they should be.
“It seems to be pointing in that direction and I suppose at the start of next season, if they can spend the money that they have wisely and there’s a new big-name manager then times will be exciting again.
“The reality of it is that it doesn’t really matter who the manager is. What matters most to Manchester United fans is that they actually win football matches and get back to where they belong.”
