"Ole is under massive, massive pressure but the first thing that has to happen is that he needs a team with courage," said Neville.

"Up to the end of last season, the feeling here [at Old Trafford] was that there was progression because they finished second in the league. Everyone then thought that they got their recruitment right in the summer.

"So the club has not planned for this. I know there are some United fans who think the club should have acted two weeks ago because Antonio Conte was available but this club was never going to appoint Conte and they are not prepared for this moment because they have the plan behind Ole.

They are 11 points off the top of the league if Chelsea win today and this United squad should not be 11 points off the top. Nobody has expected this. Nobody would have expected United would sink so low at this point in the season.

"I think he has a few weeks to sort it out."
