Neville was one of the most important players in Manchester United’s Premier League dominance over the last two decades, winning eight titles between 1996 and 2009, two UCL trophies, three FA Cups and two League Cups.
He appeared under national flag at two World Cups and three European Championships, making a hat-trick of appearances in football’s greatest international event and gathering 400 Premier League appearances.
“I have been a Manchester United fan all my life and fulfilled every dream I’ve ever had,” were Gary Neville’s words.
“Obviously I am disappointed that my playing days are at an end, however it comes to us all, and it’s knowing when that time is and for me that time is now.”
Gary started his career on September 1992 Uefa Cup tie against Torpedo Moscow and ended on 1st January 2011 against West Bromwich Albion.
Ferguson: “Gary was the best English right-back of his generation.”
“He is an example to any young professional, hard-working, loyal and intelligent.”
Arsene Wenger: “If you look at his record, he has won absolutely everything and with the number of games he has played, he is without a doubt the best.”
Well done Gary Neville!
