Gary Neville turned down Man United job before becoming a pundit

Published Add your comment

He’s busy making his own inroads into football management at the moment, but Gary Neville has revealed he turned down a role with Manchester United before he became a pundit for Sky Sports. The former right-back told how he had been offered a youth team position to do with nurturing talent in the academy when he initially hung his boots up from playing back in 2011. However, though becoming a pundit wasn’t the safest of choices, Neville chose to go down the TV route. It looks like it’s paid off for him, we have to admit. Now, Old Trafford is the most boring ground in England to watch football this season, if you’re judging based on goals scored. The Theatre of Dreams has only seen 13 goals all season and ranks 92nd in a new list published involving the grounds of all 92 professional English teams.
