Gary Neville’s career epitaph “I did my best”

And that came straight from the horses mouth. Red Nev was never the most pretentious footballer during his 20 year career with Manchester United and England. He always knew his limitations but sheer determination, undiminished will to win and a good old fashioned work ethic provided a career which genuinely earned him the often overused term of a legend. In an exclusive wide ranging interview with the clubs Inside United magazine last week, Neville was asked to sum up his career in one sentence – his prompt reply was a simple “I did my best”, a typical, understated response from a man who never held any airs and graces about himself. Neville also remembers his many career highs in a fascinating one on one interview.
