Former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville has ruled out on a managerial career amidst speculation of being the next boss at Old Trafford.
Neville, 37, retired from professional football at the end of 2010-11 season and joined SkySports as a TV pundit. However, he was drafted into Roy Hodgson’s coaching staff just prior to the Euros on a four year contract and had a positive impact on the squad during the Euros until they got eliminated by Portugal on penalties in the quarter finals.
The former United captain is however, quick to play down his desire to manage a team someday. Neville insisted that he is enjoying the job of a coach and wants to continue at the job for years to come.
‘I really enjoyed it,’ he said of his Euro 2012 experience.
‘Who would not enjoy being part of a tournament? It was an incredible experience for me.
‘But I am acutely aware it is only the very beginning.
‘I am ambitious and young and I want to learn more.
‘I have no aspiration to be a football manager. I want to do what I am doing and make as big an impact as I can.’
