Gary Neville has explained the anecdote from when he told Sir Alex Ferguson that he wanted to stop being captain of Manchester United. This is how the former English footballer told Sky Sports: “I was injured a year after I was made captain and I felt that I could not contribute as a captain should. I went to Sir Alex in a preseason and told him that I did not see myself practicing captain with the great level of footballers we had. He said, ‘You keep that fucking bracelet. You and Giggs will take turns. If I give it to Cristiano, Rooney will be mad. If I give it to Vidic, Ferdinand will be mad. ‘ We were like cops in that locker room, keeping everything in order. “ “I had Roy Keane as captain for 10 years and Roy left unexpectedly and very quickly in the middle of a season. It was a big shock and Roy is irreparable. I’ve had captains like Bryan Robson or Steve Bruce and they had a special character I wanted to be honest with myself, I was the representative of the Soccer Association at 23 years old, I believed that soccer players had to be united, “he added.“I think Sir Alex chose me ahead of Giggs because he was in and out of the team, since Sir Alex did a lot of rotations, and I always played. In the five or six years that I was captain, I alternated with Giggs and Scholes. But it was different than when Keane or Robson were captains. Roy Keane has been the most influential footballer I have ever seen on and off the pitch“he finished.Gary Neville played a total of 598 games with Manchester United and won eight Premier League titles, two Champions League, one Club World Cup, three FA Cups and two League Cups.
