Manchester United’s rich history has plenty of heroes and fan favourites, but one man who is close to the top of that list is Gary Neville. The former right-back has taken his first managerial job at Valencia, but admitted he never sees himself managing at Old Trafford.
“No, I don’t see myself managing Manchester United at all. I know what I want to do in my life, and that’s not something that’s in my mind.” Neville began.
“From my point of view, this is important for me and a valuable experience. I’m aware I need to succeed. Succeeding for me would be knowing these players have improved dramatically.
“Results come and go, I know we’re in a results-driven business, but I have never looked at football like that since I’ve finished playing. I did when I was a player. As a part-owner, I think about moving forward in the next five, ten years.”
Whether or not he just doesn’t fancy it, or perhaps he doesn’t think he’ll ever be good enough to do so – Gary Neville firmly believes he’ll never be in the Manchester United hot-seat. I’d love to see him as gaffer one day, but he seems pretty clear that this won’t ever happen which is a real shame.
