Where is Gary Neville now?

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

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

On the international scene he was also a regular for the England senior side winning 85 caps and representing his country at the 1996, 2000 and 2004 UEFA European Championships as well as the 1998, 2002 and 2006 FIFA World Cup finals.

Upon retiring from playing Neville went into coaching and swiftly obtained his UEFA A and B coaching badges.

He also released his autobiography which documents his United career under Alex Ferguson that went onto become a best-seller.

In May 2012 he was appointed as a coach for the England national team by new manager Roy Hodgson but stepped down from the role in June 2016 after they were knocked out of that summer’s European Championships tournament by unfancied Iceland.

During his time coaching with the national side he also had a brief spell as head coach of Spanish giants Valencia in 2015, but he was sacked after four months with a record of only three wins from his 16 La Liga games.

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 the company’s umbrella was the football themed restaurant Cafe Football in Stratford, London which has since expanded with sites in Manchester and one in Singapore.

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

In 2014 Neville along with his brother Phil and former Manchester United team-mates Paul ScholesRyan Giggs, and Nicky Butt embarked on a huge project when they purchased non-league side Salford City.

A substantial investment by the ex-footballers included completely renovating the ground and investment in the team which has since enjoyed four promotions since they took over.

The group have also opening a university called UA92 which is backed by Lancaster University and Trafford council.

An extremely well-respected figure in the game, Neville has worked as a pundit on the Sky Sports Monday Night Football show since 2011, working with former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher on it since 2015.

He also works as an occasional co-commentator for the channel.
