Gary Neville disagrees with Paul Scholes about Mourinho’s actions after Juventus win

Not everyone agreed with Jose Mourinho’s reaction to Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Juventus on Wednesday.

The Portuguese coach cupped a hand to his ear, later claiming that it was a message to the Juventus fans who had insulted his family during the match.

Yet some felt that Mourinho had taken the attention away from his players and the desire they showed to come back from 1-0 to record a memorable win.

Indeed, Paul Scholes said Mourinho’s actions lacked class.

“This is everywhere he goes. You need to win with a bit of class,” Scholes said on BT Sport.

“Shake the managers hand, go over and clap your fans. I don’t think there’s any need for it but that’s the way he is.”

But one person who is loving the 55-year-old’s renewed enthusiasm is Gary Neville.

NEVILLE REACTS TO MOURINHO
Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Man United defender admitted he “loved” Mourinho’s reaction at the end of the Juventus match.

Neville also says he’s seen a big difference in Mourinho in recent weeks.

“Some people might may not like that but I love that about him,” Neville said.

“I think there should be reaction and passion at the end of a match. I even like his reaction at the end of the game against Newcastle, which the FA have appealed against.

“To me, Jose’s best qualities were always that he was impossible when he was losing and impossible when he was winning and it was always enthralling to watch and he always brought everyone along the line.

“When I think of him in the press conference after the Juventus game and some of the one liners he came out with, compared to where he was a few weeks ago, and the day before the Newcastle game, that’s a massive difference.

“He has hung in there and shown determination.”
