Gary Neville addresses Man United speculation

Gary Neville rules out becoming Manchester United manager in the future

Gary Neville has ruled himself out of the running to become Manchester United manager in the future.

The former England defender was appointed as the Valencia boss earlier this month until the end of La Liga season.

Louis van Gaal is currently under pressure after the 20-time English champions suffered a 2-1 defeat by newly-promoted Bournemouth at Dean’s Court on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils also crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday night after a 3-2 defeat by Wolfsburg in their final group-stage game.

And Neville, who was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s side that won the Champions League in 1999 and 2008, explained why he doesn’t plan to manage in United in the future.

Neville told Sky Sports: “”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.

“From my point of view, this is important for me and a valuable experience. I’m aware I need to succeed.”

The Red Devils are in fourth place and eight points behind surprise leaders Leicester City.
