Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson would want nothing more than to have the now-retired Gary Neville remain part of the Red Devils’ family.
Perhaps the greatest supporter of the club, Gary Neville, called time on his illustrious 19-year career with the Red Devils with immediate effect and his last match in a Man United shirt came against West Bromwich Albion on New
Year’s Day. The player suffered an ankle injury following the fixture and claimed that his playing career is now over.
The manager, however, is well aware of the importance of Neville for the club and expects him to stay beyond his playing career.
"We want him to stay in some capacity. Gary will remain with the team. He will train whenever he wants. The next step forward for our club is to retain Gary in a capacity in which he will be satisfied,” stated the Man United manager.
Ferguson added that the player’s contribution towards making the Red Devils what they are is commendable and expects the same energy from the 35-year-old for years to come.
"He has created that family atmosphere in the dressing room time and time again over the years,” he said.
Sir Alex Ferguson is of the mind that his last injury while playing against West Brom proved to be the killing blow for his career. Had he not been injured, Neville may have continued for at least the remainder of the 2010-11 season.
Ferguson highlighted that for the past 4 seasons, Neville has been injured time and time again but appreciated the player’s commitment to come back from it.
Gary Neville has made 400 appearances in the Premier League and in total has made 602 appearances for the Red Devils. He has scored 7 times and is regarded the best right-back of his era. The player was included in the PFA Team
of the Year 5 times in his career and was also a part of the PFA Team of the Decade between 1992-2002.
