Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville has thrown his height behind under-pressure manager Louis van Gaal.
The Dutchman was put under more pressure at the weekend when Red Devils dropped to fifth on the Premier League log following a run of six matches in all competitions without a win with the latest result a 2-1 loss at home to Norwich City.
“United are having a tough spell at the moment and they’re finding it difficult,” he told BreatheSport. “But there’s a long way to go, it’s such a big club.
“I have total faith that Louis Van Gaal can, and will, bring success to Old Trafford.”
The current assistant to brother Gary Neville at Valencia also spoke about their family relationship and his plans for the future.
“Me and Gary have a very clinical relationship. We both know what we want, we trust each other and we work really well together,” said Phil, who retains ambitions of his own to be a number one in the future.
“At some stage I’d like to manage, that is the long-term aim,” he added.
“However, I know that I’ve got a lot of time, so I see no need to rush. When I feel I’ve got the right experience and there is a job that I think suits me, I’ll think about it.
“For now, I want to focus on doing a great job as a coach and an assistant here at Valencia.”
