Gary Neville disagrees with Paul Scholes’s assessment of Jose Mourinho’s celebration and has revealed he "loved it".

The Manchester United boss came under heavy criticism for his actions following his side’s late win over Juventus on Wednesday.

At full-time Mourinho turned to the crowd that had been booing him all match and held his hand to his ear.

The Portuguese angered Leonardo Bonucci and Paulo Dybala before eventually being shepherded down the tunnel.

Among those to criticise Mourinho was former United midfielder Scholes.

"This is everywhere he goes. You need to win with a bit of class," Scholes said on BT Sport.

"Shake the managers hand, go over and clap your fans. I don’t think there’s any need for it but that’s the way he is."

Fellow Class of 92 star Neville has disagreed with his pal, however.

"Some people might may not like that but I love that about him," he told Sky Sports.

"I think there should be reaction and passion at the end of a match. I even like his reaction at the end of the game against Newcastle , which the FA have appealed against.

"To me, Jose’s best qualities were always that he was impossible when he was losing and impossible when he was winning and it was always enthralling to watch and he always brought everyone along the line.

"When I think of him in the press conference after the Juventus game and some of the one liners he came out with, compared to where he was a few weeks ago, and the day before the Newcastle game, that’s a massive difference. He has hung in there and shown determination."

Mourinho’s attention will now have turned to the Manchester City game which takes place at the Etihad on Sunday.
