Jose Mourinho Sent A Message To Gary Neville After 2-2 Draw With Arsenal

Jose Mourinho mentioned Gary Neville's name in his post-match press conference after the 2-2 draw with Arsenal last night, but he wasn't having a pop at the Sky Sports' pundit.

Instead, he was showering praise on Diogo Dalot's performance and says Neville should be pleased that United have found the young right-back.

"The kid Diogo, fantastic," Mourinho said after the game, as per Football 365.

"I think Gary Neville must be thinking now that Manchester United has a right-back for 10 years."

Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw were all injured for the game at Old Trafford, while Ashley Young's suspension further complicated United's defensive options.

Dalot came into the side for his first Premier League start and though the former Porto man did have some difficulty, the general consensus from United fans was that he had a solid game.

With Valencia and Young both getting on, United need Dalot, a £19 million signing in the summer, to really come into his own.

Thoughts on Dalot's display?
