Gary Neville laughs off Manchester United job link

Published Add your comment

Gary Neville wants to be manager of Manchester United one day, but he also wants to have the looks of Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt. And, while the former would appear to be more likely, Neville knows there is no guarantee he would one day end up in the Old Trafford hot seat.

Neville conducted a quick fire Twitter Q&A with his numerous followers on Monday afternoon, during which he was asked if he has the ambition to manage Manchester United, or even England. The Sky Sports pundit, naturally, responded in the affirmative.

This assertion from the Manchester United legend clearly prompted some to assume Neville was launching a challenge on the reign of David Moyes, but the former full-back has since moved to laugh off such a suggestion.

Neville tweeted: “Story on me wanting to become MU / Eng manager is like saying I wish I looked like Brad Pitt! Don't read too much into it!”

While doubts persist about the suitability of Moyes for the long-term future of Manchester United, it would appear rather unlikely that Neville would be considered in the running were the current boss to be relieved of his duties.

Louis van Gall is 4/1 favourite to become the next manager of Manchester United, while current coach Ryan Giggs has odds of 12/1. The best price available on Neville, meanwhile, is 33/1.
