Former Manchester United player Gary Neville has compared Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp.

Neville thinks that Solskjaer has inherited a Manchester United squad similar to the one at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal when he first arrived at Liverpool.

“It does take time,” said Neville on his Sky Sports podcast.

“Solskjaer is working more with a squad like the one Klopp picked up at Liverpool than the one Guardiola inherited at City. From that point of view this is going to be a long game at Old Trafford and it’s going to be frustrating at times.

“There are going to be results like Southampton, Wolves and Crystal Palace along the way, but when you watch the team a lot of the principles are correct.

“They seem to be playing the right way. You see Daniel James score that goal (at St Mary’s) and you see the way in which they are trying to play.

“The style of it is right. The bones are there but there’s still a very long way to go, and it’s going to be bumpy along the way.”
