No room for Ibrahimovic as Gary Neville names his Manchester United XI
November 15, 2016
Gary Neville, the former Manchester United captain was more lost in Spain than Prince William would be in Benidorm. Still, the right-back trumps any pundit in the beautiful game, despite being more David Moyes than Sir Alex Ferguson when in the hot seat.
With the Sky pundit spouting a more thorough insight on football than Stephen Fry on general shit in a QI episode, the former England international carries plenty of weight when arguing who should be in the United XI.
So, is Jose Mourinho going to take any notice? Or continue to play a washed up 35-year-old up top, and a certain Belgian bloke who makes John Obi Mikel – or whatever his name is – look good.
GK) David de Gea

CB) Chris Smalling
Funny ol' game football; Smalling was the bees knees under van Gaal, but somewhat forgotten under Mourinho. Image Source: Twitter
CB) Eric Bailly
By far the Red Devils best centre-half. Image Source: Twitter
LB) Daley Blind
Ay?! It's official, G Nev hates Luke Shaw more than Jose Mourinho. Image Source: Twitter
CM) Paul Pogba

CM) Michael Carrick
Most underrated player at Man United. But does have a cardiovascular system on a par with Mark Lawrenson. Image Source: Twitter
CM) Ander Herrera
Gives his best pal, Juan Mata, a good reason to keep his blog positive. Image Source: Twitter
RW) Henrik Mkhitariyan
Not sure who's bullied more by Mourinho; Mkhi or Schweni?
ST) Marcus Rashford
The future face of United, the future face of England. And looks less stressed and bothered about it than me taking my GCSEs. Image Source: Twitter
LW) Anthony Martial
Doing his best, Nicolas Anelka, "Le Sulk", impression. Let's hope the Frenchman comes good, just about kept LvG in a job last season. Image Source: Twitter

Agree with, G. Nev? The right-back hasn’t got the best track record on picking teams, be it for England or Valencia, so perhaps it’s a bit far fetched to be jumping through hurdles at this United team.
Still, would definitely like to see more of the OAP, Carrick this season. Ironic how an arm chair boy could carry more influence than a 23-year-old who’s had more hair cuts than a 35-year-old.
