GARY NEVILLE PROFILE


Gary Alexander Neville (born 18 February 1975) is a retired English footballer. He is England's most capped right back and was Manchester United's club captain for five years.

Neville spent his entire playing career at Old Trafford, making him a rare one club man. At the time of his retirement, he was United's second longest serving player in the squad, behind his long-time teammate Ryan Giggs. Neville retired in 2011.

Gary Neville has won eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two European Cups, an Intercontinental Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup, and one League Cup, the last of which was his first trophy as captain.

Neville recovered from an injury suffered against Bolton in March 2007 and in his first match back, a reserve game against Everton in January 2008, he scored a rare goal in the 21st minute of the game which helped Manchester United to a 2–2 draw.

Neville made his first appearance for England in 1995 when he was picked by Terry Venables for the friendly against Japan. On 23 May 1996, he was joined in the England team by his brother Phil Neville for a match against China; they had also appeared together in the 1996 FA Cup Final two weeks earlier and thus were the first pair of brothers to play together in an FA Cup-final winning side and for England in the same season since Hubert and Francis Heron in 1877, 119 years earlier.
