Gary Neville Feared Career Was Over

The Manchester United defender told reporters how he feared his career was drawing to a close towards the end of last season.

The former England full-back has been hampered with injury problems during the last few seasons.

“I turned round during training one morning and said ‘I have three games to go at Manchester United’,” said Neville.

“I had not spoken to the club and I genuinely felt it could be the last three weeks.

“The club didn’t owe me anything and I was more than happy. I was enjoying myself.

“In some ways, my best football came in a period I thought I was just going to enjoy.”

Neville is just two games away from reaching 600 appearances but reveals this could be his last season in football.

“Two years ago I thought it would be my last season. Obviously last year I felt the same. I recognise this one could be as well.

“I am on a one-year contract. If I don’t perform or I feel the club don’t want me anymore I will be gone.

“That is life. In the 19 years I have been here, it has happened to better players.”
