Gary Neville

Where is Gary Neville now?

Regarded by many as the finest English right back of his generation, Gary Neville finally retired from playing in 2011.

A one club man, Neville was captain of Manchester United for five of his 20-year playing career winning a total of 20 trophies during his time there including eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the UEFA Champions League twice.

In 2012, Gary Neville released his autobiography which documents his United career under Alex Ferguson and went onto become a best-seller.

In May 2012 Neville who holds both UEFA A and B coaching badges was appointed as a coach for the England national team by new manager Roy Hodgson.

He stepped down from the role in June 2016 after England were knocked out of the Euro 2016 tournament by Iceland.

Away from football Neville is involved in a number of business interests and has formed a management company called GG Hospitality with former United team-mate Ryan Giggs.

The first business they opened under this company’s umbrella was football themed restaurant Cafe Football situated in Stratford, London.

A huge success, the Cafe Football chain of restaurants has now expanded with two sites in Manchester and one in Singapore.

They have also opened Hotel Football a 133 room hotel situated right opposite Old Trafford which boasts a five-a-side football pitch on the roof. 

In 2014 Gary Neville along with his brother Phil and former Manchester United team mates Paul ScholesRyan Giggs, and Nicky Butt purchased non-league side Salford City.

A substantial investment by the ex-footballers including renovation of the ground and investment in the team which has since enjoyed two promotions since they took over.

In October 2015 Neville, along with Ryan Giggs, was inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame, according to their website, ‘aims to celebrate and highlight the achievements of the all-time top talents to grace the game in England’

An extremely well-respected figure in the game, Gary Neville was a pundit on the Sky Sports Monday Night Football Show with former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher for four years before leaving to manage Spanish side Valencia in December 2015

In a move that shocked many, Neville was appointed as head coach of the Spanish giants until the end of the season with his brother Phil working as his assistant.

Unfortunately it didn’t work out for Neville and he was sacked after four months with a record of only three wins from his 16 La Liga games.

In August 2016, Gary Neville returned to Sky Television as a pundit for their live Premier League games as well as returning for their Monday Night Football show.

Along with his ‘Class of 92’ team-mates, Neville will be opening a university in 2019 called UA92 which is backed by Lancaster University and Trafford council.

Th institution will aim to attract students who otherwise might not go on to higher education and plans to offer “broader courses than traditional degrees, designed to enhance life skills as well as employability”.
