Gary Neville believes Sir Alex Ferguson was so successful at Manchester United because of his brutal honesty.

"His management style was very much see it, say it, review it, move on," Neville said at the MEN Business of the Year Awards at the Midland Hotel.

"Everything that he saw, whether it was negative or positive he would say it - because you have to tell the truth. You would review it to take the message and then move on.

"Ultimately that's how I would like to see my management style. He had such fantastic leaders in his dressing Maglie Lazio - room, every one of them was a captain.

"They could say anything they wanted to each other any day and it was forgotten about in 10 mins. A bad pass was a crime and the standards were so high.

"I was privileged to work with him in that environment - it was all about truth. He surrounded himself with people who had the character and personality to accept the truth."

Bastian Schweinsteiger would be welcome at Bundesliga 2 side Stuttgart, according to defender Kevin Grosskreutz.

Schweinsteiger is yet to play for Manchester United since Jose Mourinho succeeded Louis van Gaal in the summer after being frozen out by the Portuguese boss.

But Grosskreutz reckons Schweinsteiger would be a perfect signing to help the German outfit secure a swift return to the top flight.

"He (Schweinsteiger) is going through a difficult situation right now," Grosskreutz told German newspaper Bild.

"But he's coping with it really well.

"He's invited to join VfB this winter. We'd all be happy."

Manchester United have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof.

That is according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, who claim Jose Mourinho is Maglie Juventus - keen on securing a deal for the Sweden international in January.

The Portuguese boss is in desperate need of reinforcements at centre-back, with injuries to Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling leaving him short of options.

Blues boss Antonio Conte was reportedly keen on signing Lindelof in the summer and could turn to him in the winter window - with Kurt Zouma and 35-year-old John Terry struggling for fitness.

Lindelof is contracted to Benfica until 2020 and has a £25million release clause.

The report adds Juventus, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the 22-year-old.
