Luke Shaw’s reputation rests on proving José Mourinho wrong, says Gary Neville

• Neville backs Shaw to prove he has the talent to thrive at Old Trafford

Luke Shaw has been warned by Gary Neville that his reputation will be damaged if he fails to respond to José Mourinho’s scathing assessment of his commitment to Manchester United by showing he belongs at Old Trafford.

Shaw was not even a substitute during Saturday’s goalless draw with West Bromwich Albion and his future looks uncertain after Mourinho said that he cannot compare his attitude to United’s other left-backs, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young. The manager said Shaw was a “long way behind” in terms of commitment, focus and ambition.

Karius, the Nevilles and the worst of football’s established hierarchies | Marina Hyde

Liverpool’s young goalkeeper is free and welcome to say what he wants, even if it does upset Sky Sports’ thin-skinned prefect of punditry

As someone who has never played the game of football to the highest level, I wonder if I dare even giggle at Gary Neville? The hierarchies of English football and the various industries that surround it – including Her Majesty’s sports press – frequently remind me of some failing post-war minor British public school, where bumptious members of the Remove are always being slapped down by the bigger boys, for reasons as bygone as the empire. Pointless rules, desiccated conventions, rigid systems of deference – what is any of it for, except propping up the establishment for the same reason establishments always demand propping up?

Hang on, where on earth was I? Ah, yes. Gary Neville, prefect of punditry over at Sky Sports. In the course of a wide-ranging interview last week, malfunctioning Liverpool keeper Loris Karius, 23, had the mildest of digs at Neville, 41, from whom he has absorbed at least his fair share of unsparing criticism.

Gary Neville believes Roy Hodgson deserves England contract extension

• ‘I think Roy can be proud of an excellent piece of work. It needs a good finish’
• Neville praises the England manager’s faith in youth over experience

Gary Neville has admitted the perception of Roy Hodgson’s tenure as England manager will be determined by the team’s performance at Euro 2016, but remains convinced the current setup’s “excellent” work and long-term vision warrant a contract extension beyond the finals.

Hodgson’s side will complete preparations for the tournament with Thursday’s friendly against Portugal at Wembley with the intention to select a strong side that is likely to provide the basis of the team to start the opening Group B game against Russia. The manager will travel with the youngest 23-man squad of any of the 24 nations involved in France, maintaining the side’s evolution over his four-year spell in charge, and determined England will make amends for their dismal results at the World Cup in Brazil.
