Gary Neville insists that he has absolutely no interest in becoming Manchester United manager, and neither do the club.
The 44-year-old made 602 appearances for United from 1992-2011, winning eight Premier Leagues, two Champions Leagues, three FA Cups and two League Cups in the process.
Since retirement, the former defender has mostly been known for his punditry work with Sky Sports, but has also taken roles in coaching and management.
The England international worked as a coach with the England national side and surprisingly took over as Valencia manager for 28 games from December 2015 to March 2016, winning just 10 of them.
Neville appears to have no plans to return to management, and when conducting a Twitter question and answer session on Sunday, he confirmed that it certainly would not happen at Old Trafford.
He was asked, If the opportunity ever arose would you take the United managerial role?
Neville replied: That call isnt coming and if it did, I would run a mile.
The co-owner of Salford City is adamant that United should back current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the foreseeable future as he builds a new, young team at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have made a mixed start to the season, but their 1-0 victory over Leicester City on Saturday took them to fourth in the Premier League and Neville believes Solskjaer deserves time to build the squad he wants.
He should get the transfer window in January, into the summer and next season, Neville told Norwegian outlet TV2.
Then there has to be a progression, you have to see improvement, but look at Jurgen Klopp. It took four years before he won anything, but it started to get better after 12 months.
It is a young team, and I as a Manchester United supporter believe he should get this and next season.
Give him three to four transfer windows to clean up the trash in the dressing room, because there is trash in there. You have to weed out the weeds, and thats not his fault.
He has to create his winning team, but it takes time. LiverpooRead More – Source
