Mini Bio (1)

Gary Neville rose through the youth ranks of Manchester United and established himself as the club's first-choice right-back under its most successful manager, Sir Alex Ferguson. Neville won many honours with the club, including the treble (Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League) in 1999. He was named Manchester United club captain after Roy Keane left in 2005 and lifted his first trophy as captain of Manchester United by winning the Carling Cup at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

He also played 85 times for England between 1995 and 2007, becoming the country's most capped right-back. He established himself in the England team before his Manchester United contemporaries (and subsequent England regulars) David Beckham and Paul Scholes, and he was the only one to play under Terry Venables, making his England debut in 1995 and playing in every minute of England's first four games at Euro '96 (against Switzerland, Scotland, the Netherlands and Spain). However, after being booked in the games against Switzerland and Spain, he was suspended from playing in the semifinal against Germany, which turned out to be England's final game as they were beaten in a penalty shootout. He also appeared at the 1998 World Cup, Euro 2000, Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup.

After retiring from his playing career, Neville served as England's assistant manager under Roy Hodgson between 2012 and 2016 and made an unsuccessful attempt at launching a management career of his own at the Spanish club Valencia in 2015, but was sacked the following year.

On 18 July 2018, Neville was interviewed for over an hour by the UK Parliament's "Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee" about the future of English football and the Football Association's proposed sale of Wembley Stadium. Neville criticised the proposed sale, instead advocating a 25% cut of agents' fees to fund grassroots football instead.

Personal Quotes (1)

[in 2018] English football over the last 20 years has taken a bit of a battering in respect of coaching standards and the success of the national team. We've actually lost faith in ourselves. The top managers in the Premier League, none of them are English. You would never get, I think, an English coach being appointed at a top club anymore. I can't think of a situation where it will occur in the near future either. Same with players, we now only have 30 per cent of our Premier League, I think it's 32 per cent, is now from English football. 20, 30 years ago, you think of Bobby Robson, Terry Venables, these were managing Barcelona, not just the top clubs in England, they were managing the top clubs in Europe.
