GARY NEVILLE claims the Manchester United board would face mutiny if they fail to give interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the job full-time.
Former Old Trafford skipper Neville says his old team-mate has “completely transformed” the mood since taking over in December – especially during Sunday’s 0-0 Premier League draw at home to Liverpool.
Solskjaer became the Prem first chief to earn 26 points from his first ten games as injury-hit United frustrated the leaders.
And Nev told Sky Sports: “Three months ago if it was 0-0 at home they would have been singing attack, attack, attack.
“They were singing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer all the second half. The mood has completely transformed. He has the crowd with him.
“I think at this moment in time if you’re the board you are in a position where you could give it to someone else. I think there would be mutiny.
“The fans love him. They were getting behind the team in the second half, but mostly they were singing for him.
“That’s one of the best atmospheres I’ve witnessed at Old Trafford for years in a 0-0 draw.
“If United had scored, it would have been absolutely incredible.”
Instead Neville believes the Norwegian, 45, picked up invaluable tips from his side’s resilient display.
Nev said: “He learned a lot more about his team in the second half.
“The character and the personality was there. Manchester United dug in today to get the job done.”
