Gary Neville believes Erik ten Hag has had a "10-year career" at Manchester United in his first season as manager.
The Dutchman's Red Devils beat Chelsea 4-1 on Thursday evening to secure their place in next season's Champions League.
It has been a difficult debut campaign for the ex-Ajax boss, with uncertainty regarding club ownership and setbacks on the field, including a 7-0 thrashing at fierce rivals Liverpool.
Neville said: "I think he has proved he has the confidence and authority to be able to make big decisions.
"That is one thing he has hammered home to everybody. Harry Maguire has not been an easy situation.
"The takeover constantly going on with the Glazer family dragging it out right to the very end. Big defeats at Liverpool, 7-0, Brentford, 4-0, recruitment, massive question marks.
"He has a had a five, 10-year Manchester United managerial career in one season and dealt with it really well, he has proven he has got the capability to deal with it.
"What he has to do now is jump forward next season with new owners, hopefully progress like Jurgen Klopp did with Liverpool to hopefully one day a title."
Borussia Dortmund have released their new home kit for 2023-24, which they will debut in the final match of the Bundesliga season against Mainz on Saturday.
A victory will see Edin Terzic's side pip Bayern Munich to the domestic crown.
The suave yellow and black shirt is the result of a fan design contest that attracted more than 15,000 submissions.
Team captain Marco Reus was part of the panel that narrowed it down to nine entries, with the winner then decided by a public vote.
The PUMA jersey has a striking silhouette of the club's iconic Signal Iduna Park stadium and is made with 100% recycled polyester.
Dortmund managing director Carsten Cramer said: "We're proud to offer our fans the chance to design the club's kit for the 2023-24 season and involve them in this process.
"The iconic stadium silhouette and the great number of submissions exceeded our expectations, and we‘re looking forward to seeing our fans in the Yellow Wall wearing the jersey next season."
Jamie Redknapp has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham after the club's tumultuous 2022-23 season.
The England captain has enjoyed a stellar campaign from an individual perspective, scoring 28 Premier League goals.
But ex-Spurs midfielder Redknapp believes now is the time for the striker to jump ship amid interest from Manchester United, with his contract expiring at the end of next season.
He said: "It's the facts, Spurs are a shambles. If you are Harry Kane with one year to go this is the time to leave. He has to push now.
"United might get someone, he missed Man City a few years ago, right now he needs to push with one year on his contract to go somewhere.
"Tottenham are like a social experiment of how far you can push your fans before they completely lose it. They need to do something, no one wants to lose Harry Kane, he has been incredible but deserves better."
Carney Chukwuemeka was very honest in his assessment of Chelsea's season after their 4-1 thrashing at Manchester United.
The 19-year-old started in midfield alongside Enzo Fernandez and Conor Gallagher as Frank Lampard named the Blues' youngest ever Premier League starting XI.
After the match at Old Trafford, which leaves the West Londoners sitting 12th in the table, Chukwuemeka said: "We're in a difficult period.
"There’s been a lot of transition and change but it's clear we aren’t playing well enough at the moment. We need to give a lot more for the badge.
"We’re in a difficult period and we need to pull ourselves from this and improve. We've got one game left this season and we need to give the fans something to smile about.
"We need to finish this season on a winning note to take into the summer, then come back in pre-season with a different approach and a different mindset to do better."
Fabinho has admitted the Liverpool squad were taken aback by Roberto Firmino's decision to leave the club at the end of the season.
The ex-Hoffenheim forward bid an emotional farewell to Anfield after the Reds' 1-1 draw with Aston Villa last weekend.
Sunday's match against Southampton will be his last for Jurgen Klopp's side following eight years of service, where he scored 110 goals and won seven trophies.
Fabinho said: "We were always asking Bobby: 'When do you sign your new contract? Come on we want you to stay here with us'.
"We didn’t really expect him to go. Bobby is still only 31-years-old so he has a lot to do. He can still play his best football at that age, he's young.
"So yes, we didn't really expect this decision to be made but (we accept) he has to go."
