The Old Trafford club captain has not appeared for United since suffering an ankle injury against Bolton over a year ago, and despite the fact he is back in full training - and has played three reserve team matches this year - he admits this is not the best time for manager Sir Alex Ferguson to ease him back into the fold.
"I´ve played three times for the reserves since the turn of the year and this is the longest run I´ve been on in terms of training and playing games," Neville told Manchester United Radio. "It´s going to take time for me to get back to full match sharpness after being out for so long."
