Gary Neville Will No Longer Be Club Captain

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed right back Gary Neville will no longer be club captain of Manchester United. Gary Neville replaced Roy Keane as captain in 2005 when the Irishman left to play for Glasgow Celtic. This isn’t really a huge surprise seen the last three seasons for Neville have been ruined by injuries.

In past three years while Neville was absent the armband was more then likely to go to either Ryan Giggs or Rio Ferdinand. But it now looks like Namanja Vidic will take the honour of being the captain of Manchester United which I reckon could of been apart of his new contract.

“Gary is still club captain but I have been looking for someone who is going to be playing consistently every week,” said Ferguson.

“Over the last two or three years we have had to pass the baton along the line a few times.

“We have not had a consistent captain because Gary’s injuries have prevented him playing all the time.

“If he was available all the time he would be the captain. He would have been on Saturday. But I have to look at the overall picture.

“With all due respect to Gary’s time at United, he knows and I know, we don’t play him every week and I am looking for someone who does.”
