Phil Neville reckons Manchester United will have an upper hand in the game versus Everton.
The Toffees will be in action at Old Trafford this weekend. They have just returned from Russia where they had gone to play in the Europa League. According to Neville, the tiredness of that game might reflect on their outing at United.
Previewing the upcoming match on a television channel, Neville said, “To return from a tiring trip and then, to get into action straightaway, is never easy. I can tell you that being a former player. So, there is a chance for United surely. But, they will have to catch it by the scruff of the neck. They will have to go hard at the start and get Everton down on the mat straightaway.”
Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt all are players that were recruited during the time when Sir. Alex Ferguson was in charge of Manchester United as all of those performers were developed by the Premier League club from a very early age this was way back in the 1990’s. All of them still remain playing an important role at Old Trafford as Ryan Giggs is the assistant manager of the club while Nicky Butt is the coach of the youth teams.
They have already reached an age where experience plays a huge part in their careers which allows them of taking up a managerial position at the club instead of just performing in the squad.
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.
As each season progresses on, the Mexican forward Javier Hernandez continues on being unable to snatch a consistent starting berth in Manchester United.
Sir. Alex Ferguson typically used Hernandez as an impact substitute player and on occasions it gave him positive results.
With the arrival of David Moyes to the Premier League club, his playing time is even less and according to the head coach of Mexico Miguel Herrera; the young forward is growing increasingly frustrated by his lack of time on the pitch.
“He seemed well but he is a bit frustrated because he doesn’t play despite training well and the truth is that when he does play, he makes a huge effort on the pitch,” he told Raza Deportiva.
Phil Neville has said that Manchester United’s defensive stalwart Phil Jones can go on to become a leader for club and country.
The youngster was signed from Blackburn Rovers for £ 16 million a few years ago. United did not hesitate to pay this extravagant fee for a youngster, who had been proven at the top level. They had to beat the competition from several clubs in order to secure his signature. He has slowly become a regular first-team player for the club, while previous manager Sir Alex Ferguson used him extremely well in various positions due to his versatility.
Manchester United’s first-team coach Phil Neville has said that he feels that the club are heading in the right direction after their 1-0 win over Arsenal. This was an eight match unbeaten in all competitions for United.
This good run of form comes after a tough start to life under David Moyes. United are open to the season with three defeats in eight matches, which meant that they were sitting in a lowly league position. They have since made up a lot of ground and are just five points behind Arsenal.
They are the current holders of the competition and this victory is a right step towards retaining the title according to Neville, who joined the club as a coach only in the summer.
David Moyes has made it quite clear that nobody is a certainty in the starting XI of Manchester United at this point of time.
This season is proving to be a tough one for the Red Devils. They have already lost 2 out of the 5 Premier League games that they have played so far and they are currently not even in top 5 in the points table.
Moyes is being heavily criticized for United’s poor performances this season. But, the 50 years old Scot is confident that his team will be able to bounce back.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Moyes said, “I am not going to get frustrated by the criticism. We have got the ability to be able to come back and we will surely do that.”
“This is a great side. They were the Premier League winners last season. There is no lack of potential.”
When asked about United’s win over Liverpool in a Capital One Cup game a couple of days back, Moyes said, “It was certainly a big relief for the entire camp. We had been defeated by them at the start of this month and then, we lost against City too. So, we certainly needed something going our way. I think both the teams played exciting football.”
When asked if resting the seniors in that game against Liverpool was a risk, Moyes said, “I don’t think so. Our squad doesn’t have reserves in it. All the guys are international players. So, there was no risk involved in resting some of the regulars.”
“Nobody is certain to be picked in the starting XI at the moment. It all depends on form. You will have to perform well, otherwise, you are out.”
United’s next Premier League game is against West Bromwich Albion. That match will be played on Saturday at Old Trafford.
Manchester United coach Phil Neville has said that he is very much impressed with the training methods of new manager David Moyes at the club. This is the first time Manchester United will be experiencing a new manager at the helm of a Premier league season.
Sir Alex Ferguson retired from duty after 26 years in charge of the club. Moyes has brought in Phil Neville from Everton after the midfielder retired at the end of last season. He has made no secret of the fact that he would one day like to become a manager.
United is not new to Phil Neville as he played at the club along with his brother Gary Neville for several years before moving to Everton in 2005. Now back at Old Trafford, Neville is looking to win the league title as a coach. Moyes has received praise from Neville, but he has warned that the Scot should adopt attacking football as soon as possible because United fans demand it. They have gone over the years to love the attacking football of Manchester United, which is also synonymous around the world. Moyes has so far been a pragmatic manager with Everton.
“I think he has really impressed the lads with his training methods. We have worked them hard and we think we have got them really fit for the start of the season. But he has remained true to himself. He has been the same person that I have known for the past eight years. He has treated the players the same as he treated the Everton players – I think that is really important. He has not come in and tried to be someone he is not,” said Neville. United started the season with a 4-1 win over Swansea on the opening weekend.
Former Everton midfielder Phil Neville, who retired from football at the end of last season, is widely expected to go into coaching after being part of the England under 21 set up along with Stuart Pearce.
The former Manchester United midfielder has been linked with a coaching role at either one of his former club’s – Everton or Manchester United. Manchester United recently appointed former Everton manager David Moyes as the replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson. His connections with David Moyes is widely expected to land him a coaching role at Manchester United.
Neville has spoken of his admiration for former Manchester United assistant manager Steve McLaren, who has managed to form a managerial career of his own since leaving the Red Devils. The 36-year-old Neville recently completed his A-licence and he will be taking the other UEFA coaching badges as well. He has praised the tactical brilliance of former England manager Terry Venables. Over the course of his stellar career, Neville managed to make 59 appearances for the national team since making his debut in 1996.
Aside from Terry Venables and Steve McLaren, he has also spoken in glowing praise of our performance England managers like Glenn Hoddle. An extremely versatile player, Neville was capable of playing either in midfield or in defence.
“Terry Venables was brilliant. In terms of the whole management thing, he was the most rounded. He had man-management. He had a fiery side. The players respected him. Tactically he was brilliant. I liked the ways he had coaches around him who challenged him, Don Howe and Bryan Robson. The fact that the No 2 and No 3 were not afraid to express an opinion would make the senior coach even better. Glenn Hoddle’s training sessions were brilliant, really enjoyable,” said the 36-year-old, who is weighing up offers from Manchester United and Everton.
Everton manager David Moyes has said that the current lofty position of the club cannot be maintaining next season if the club do not bring in at least five new players in the summer. Everton are currently sixth in the Premier league table with an outside chance of finishing in the top four, which would guarantee them Champions League football next season.
However, Moyes has pointed to the fact that there are several players coming to the end of their careers at Everton, and the team needs injection of fresh blood in order to maintain the pressure against the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool.
The future of Moyes has been under great speculation over the last few months, as he has refused to sign a new contract before the end of the season. Everton midfielder Phil Neville has already announced that he will not be extended his contract with the club, as he is going to search new challenges. The likes of Sylvain Distin and Leon Osman have been great servants to the club over the years, but they do not have many years ahead of them in football. Moyes has said that the club needs to bring in at least five young players in the summer if they are to maintain open for the top four positions next season.
“I do think there is a big rebuilding job to go on. We have a little bit of an ageing team. With Phil going, that is a big piece of the jigsaw which will leave and, if we make Europe, we are going to have to find a way of bringing in five or six players because of the way your squad is affected. We have a few players in their 30s and we have to start looking to replace them but supporters also want us to continue playing at the top of the league,” said Moyes.
