Gary Neville wields one of the most authoritative voices in football media when it comes to his thoughts on Manchester United.
The former Red Devil enjoyed a 19-year career at Old Trafford, winning eight Premier League titles en route to establishing himself as a true club legend.
However, while defending on a football pitch might be his first and foremost quality, he certainly has an intriguing way with words, too.

Neville has offered his take on the make-up of the current United squad amid all the discussion surrounding who fits into Mourinho’s best starting line-up.
However, what came out of his mouth will likely leave the United faithful even more confused about the state of the playing group.
Speaking about the the team on Sky Sports ahead of the clash between his old club and Leicester, Neville said: ”It sounds good but put it altogether and it doesn't look right, Mourinho has a big job and it's ridiculous to judge so early.
"Mourinho has a squad from 4 different managers. It's like a [bolognese] with tikka masala and a roast dinner with curry sauce.
“In the last few years there are players who have been bought who should never have been bought for this club.”
From what can be deciphered from his comment, it would seem Neville believes Mourinho has inherited a squad of several individually brilliant yet incompatible players.
It is hard to agree the Portuguese could have thrown out the balance of his entire playing group after a single transfer window in charge.
Hoping for a first Premier League victory since United downed Southampton on 20 August, Mourinho is under serious pressure to discover the right formula and guide his expensive team higher up the table.
