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.
When Louis van Gaal arrived as the official manager of Manchester United at Old Trafford, the Dutch coach outlined some of the actions and plans he wants to fulfill with one of them being keeping all of those veteran and experienced players in the club.
Van Gaal said: ‘’Nicky Butt is already assisting us. We will find a role for Paul Scholes and Phil Neville. That is what we want. We have to adapt to the qualities of these people and we’ll have to speak to them personally and wait and see’’
After playing for 8 years at Old Trafford, Phil Neville made his way to Everton where he worked alongside with David Moyes and it was Moyes the man who decided to bring him back to Manchester United as a first-team coach but now that David Moyes has been sacked, it still remains unclear as to what Louis van Gaal wants to do with Phil Neville.
