"I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the day before a cup final and finding out from other people".
Mourinho's job is said to be on the line, and he was the focus for criticisms in yet another disastrous showing at Old Trafford.
"Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support of his life tomorrow and I'll be there to give it to him. For me, one win will change the atmosphere around the club".
"Because", Neville added, "if this is true and it's broken the day before it's going to happen and he's going to be sacked after the game or at the weekend it's an absolute disgrace". Senior club players called for his sacking in December itself but the owners chose to stick with him until Manchester United mathematically failed to enter the Champions League.
Mourinho has alienated players, fans and staff alike this season - he has been at loggerheads for weeks with World Cup victor Paul Pogba - and it seems the United board, led by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, now want to make a change. I don't want that, and if I could tell them to not do it I would, because it is not about me, it is about the football club they love and the football club we represent with honour and dignity. I absolutely love it to death, it's been my life.
"The people overseeing the football operations are nowhere near good enough". It's given me everything.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly likely to be sacked after a poor run of form
While it is understood that patience is wearing thin among the United hierarchy, the immediacy of Friday's report sent ripples around the football world.
'After 20 years of football, I am still naïve and I still don't believe that a player is not honest, ' he insisted on Monday.
Mourinho made another switch at the break - taking off McTominay and bringing on Marouane Fellaini, with another midfielder Nemanja Matic asked to partner Chris Smalling at the back.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville slammed the club without naming names, saying that the problems at his former club ran higher than the manager.
"[We have had] recovering time for the players that played against Valencia and good work for the others that obviously were in ideal condition to train", Mourinho added.
