The former Red Devils full-back sees a resurgent side heading in the right direction as they seek to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City
Manchester United have “cause for optimism” again, says Gary Neville, with the transfer talk that has raged around Paul Pogba starting to quieten while the emergence of Mason Greenwood has offered a welcome shot in the arm.
The Red Devils have found themselves stuck in reverse for long periods since Sir Alex Ferguson headed into retirement back in 2013.
Forward momentum has been established at times, with the odd trophy triumph taken in, but progress has often stalled and led to regular changes in the dugout.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now calling the shots and, after facing some uncomfortable questions of his own , appears to have United heading in the right direction once more.
A resurgent Red Devils outfit have gone unbeaten through their last 17 games in all competitions, keeping themselves in the hunt for a top-four finish and major silverware.
Shrewd business in the transfer market is being richly rewarded, while ongoing faith in youth and home-grown stars is also helping to rekindle a spark that was in danger of fizzling out.
