Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher disagree about Van Gaal on Twitter

Jamie Carragher

The former Manchester United right-back has backed the current boss. The former Liverpool defender, however...

Gary Neville has defended Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal on Twitter - but former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is less sold on the Dutchman.

The two former Premier League footballers and current Sky Sports pundits were discussing the 63-year-old after comments he made during a pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon.

"It's not good enough," Van Gaal told reporters, discussing his side's recent form. "But on the other hand, we are in a process, as I have said from the beginning.

"The process shall take more than one year; it shall take three years."

And former United defender Neville feels the Dutchman is being 'sensible.'

Ex-Liverpool man Carragher, however, took a more sceptical stance, questioning Van Gaal's sudden change of stance after earlier claiming he should be judged after three months.

Those who side with Neville believe the Dutchman's firm approach will restore the Old Trafford outfit to their former heights. Those who agree with Liverpool legend Carragher, though, are less than impressed with his constant chatter about 'philosophy' and failure to deliver any actual results thus far.
