Gary Neville: Man UTD will be Champions again. Perhaps when Klopp and Guardiola leave

Former Manchester United player Gary Neville has shared his opinion on the red devils ‘ prospects in the fight for the English title in the coming years.

“The only thing I can guarantee is that Manchester United will be Champions again. It may not happen this season or next. But it will be great when it happens. The longer the wait, the better the feeling of triumph.

I’m not talking like a United fan and I’m not saying we should win this season. Yes, I would like to, but you usually feel it when it’s your time. Now this feeling is not there. Perhaps United will become Champions, Klopp and Guardiola will leave Liverpool and city. I hope this will happen within a few years. This will be a chance, because they are both outstanding coaches who have built great teams. But they will be gone in a year, two or three. This will be the moment when United can come back. I’m sure Chelsea think the same of themselves, “Neville was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
