Former Manchester United captain and right back Gary Neville has officially retired from club football with immediate effect according to reports today. Neville made over 600 appearances for the Red Devils in a career that started in 1992 and ended in 2011.
Now 35 and the victim of multiple injuries over the course of the last few years, Neville spoke candidly about his career upon his retirement as seen on the BBC:
I have been a Manchester United fan all my life and fulfilled every dream I've ever had. I am disappointed that my playing days are at an end, however it comes to us all, and it's knowing when that time is and for me that time is now".
Not a goal scorer but a staunch defender and a good leader on the pitch, Neville walks away from Manchester United just a few weeks away from his 36th birthday with no regrets and with the distinct privilege of having played for one club during his entire career.
