Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville defended the club's beleaguered manager Jose Mourinho on Sunday but accused those above him of having no long-term plan to restore former glories.

Since their last Champions League match, the Red Devils have drawn with Wolves, been beaten by West Ham and been knocked out of the EFL Cup by Derby.

Asked if he was anxious about his position if the side's poor form continued, Mourinho replied: "No".

United are now on a three-match winless run and Rodrigo said: "It's a team that's not used to going through situations like this, but also the way they're made up, they've got some great players, first-class players".

Mourinho said: "Exactly, (it) is a collective thing, the reason why we don't win is responsibility of everybody".

Mourinho brushed aside concerning statistics and perceptions in Spain, while also refusing to say whether he had spoken to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in the wake of Saturday's defeat. Sometimes it can help but the most important is on the pitch. "I think individually and as a team we were bad".

The match is the first of two consecutive Champions League home games for United with Juventus visiting Old Trafford on 23 October. He's there to put a team out and put a team out that he thinks can win the game.

"I don't know what happened before but when I arrived immediately I had a feeling he is a very good player for my way of football as he is a very technical centre-back".
