The departure of David Moyes from Manchester United will not affect Phil Neville’s position in the Premier League club even though he was appointed by the Scottish coach.
Unfortunately for the assistant manager Steve Round and the coach Jimmy Lumsden they will be following behind Moyes seeing their way out of Manchester United.
During Neville’s 10 years’ time playing at the Old Trafford club he managed on lifting the Premier League title on 6 occasions as well as a number of other accolades but the defender has never witnessed the club suffer such a disappointing string of results and it has been difficult for him to watch other teams run over them.
“It’s been difficult watching other teams above us do well and to even look at a league table. I find it difficult to watch Match of the Day on Saturday night; I find it almost impossible because we’ve suffered this season. We are not hiding away from the fact that we have underperformed. We have not fulfilled any levels of expectations this season.”
“We’ve not had a lot of positivity this season. When you get to this stage of the season, it’s been quite foreign for this group and this football club, to be out of all the competitions and not challenging for a trophy. There’s a really empty feeling and there is an empty feeling in my belly.
On occasions it has been even hard for the former player of Manchester United to even see the Premier League tables as they have been knocked out of every single tournament played in this campaign.
Neville made over 350 appearances for Manchester United until he transferred to Everton and when the English defender decided to hang up his boots, Neville made his return to Old Trafford as part of David Moyes’ coaching staff last summer.
