Neville: Man Utd headed in right direction

Phil Neville believes Manchester United are slowly getting back to the winning mentality they need to claim silverware.

The former Red Devils defender expressed his view after the club progressed to the English Football League Cup final with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Hull City, despite their 2-1 second-leg defeat on Thursday.

Neville was not impressed by United's performance at Hull, which he called "average", but he was pleased to see that the players were not satisfied to simply make the final.

"When you watch United now they are 100 per cent going in the right direction. They are playing with a better style, they are playing with more confidence and they've got determination about them," he told Sky Sports.

"They've lost tonight, but qualified for a major final and those players didn't really celebrate at the end of the game.

"That shows how far they've come. The standard has been risen at that football club back to where it should be."
