Manchester United Defender, Gary Neville

Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has announced his retirement from professional football with immediate effect, according to news reported by BBC yesterday.

He started his professional career with the Red Devils in 2001, and won the Youth FA Cup in 2002, with a group of youngsters – David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. Along with those players, he became a first-team regular at Old Trafford, winning the Champions League, 8 Premier League trophies, three FA Cups and two League Cups in his time at United.

Gary Neville was appointed the club captain in 2005, and eventually stepped down in 2010. Without a doubt, he always has the club’s interest at heart. Moving on, he could continue his career into football television punditry, or pursue the coaching side of the game.

Either way, he remains as a iconic legend of Manchester United.
