A very unlikely saviour for Manchester United as coach is snapped with Jack Bauer?

Manchester United 3

Manchester United coach Phil Neville met a TV legend on Friday evening, but even they may not get United a top-four spot.

Manchester United’s season needs some saving, with a place in next season’s Champions League looking unlikely given their current league position and the teams they will have to overcome to win this year’s competition.

But some men are born problem-solvers. Hell, some are even born to save the world! And Phil Neville came face-to-face with one such person in the form of Jack Bauer (or more specifically, 24 star Kiefer Sutherland) who he met on Friday evening.

Posting a photograph on Instagram, the United first-team coach then took to Twitter to say, “Just met Jack Bauer!!!!!!”

That is a lot of exclamation marks, but then Bauer has saved the world eight times now, and he still hasn’t gone to the loo or charged his phone in all that time so he is certainly not your average hero.
