“For me the next manager of Man United should be Mauricio Pochettino,” Neville told Sky Sports
“When I look at values at Man United, I look at his belief in young players.
“His performance levels, style of play, the way he’s carried himself.
“I was fortunate enough to spend two or three days at Tottenham’s training ground.
“My view is he is somebody who brings the three key principals of the club: style of play, promotion of youth and winning football matches.
“He is the person who is the outstanding candidate.”
