Phil Nevile decided to hang up his boots and retire from playing football professionally on April of 2013 and only a few months later, he took on a managerial position at Old Trafford as he became the first-team coach of Manchester United as he worked alongside David Moyes.
Coaching the first team of Manchester United was something that Phil Neville used to do over 2 years ago and now Neville has other things planned to do as the retired footballer is has turned into the assistant manager of Valencia but he wants to turn into the full time coach of the Spanish team.
BBC pundit Phil Neville says that he expects new Chelsea signing Juan Cuadrado to make the club even better in the Premier League.
Chelsea sold Andre Schurrle for £ 24 million on the final day of January transfer window. The German international returned back to the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg.
The Premier League table leaders wasted no time in announcing his replacement after managing to secure the signature of Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina for around £ 23 million. The league knows little about the Colombian, but Neville says that the 26-year-old is a very exciting player who can light up the league.
Former England international Phil Neville says that Manchester United should consider signing Palermo striker Paulo Dybala before anyone else.
The Argentine is regarded as the next Sergio Aguero and he has already caught the eye with some impressive performances in the Italian Serie A.Dybala is one of the top scorers in the league with seven to his name. He has also created three goals in the 14 league appearances. At just 21, he is just starting to establish himself in the Palermo team. Despite his impressive form, Palermo are struggling in the middle of the table due to a weak defence.
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.
