Phil Neville had only two clubs over an 18-year career playing nearly 700 games. He came through Manchester United’s academy as part of the famous youth team known as ‘Fergie’s Fledglings’ and captained them to FA Youth Cup glory in 1995. He made his United debut the same year and during a ten-year spell at Old Trafford he won six league titles and three FA Cups, plus a Champion League winners’ medal from that famous night in Barcelona in 1999. He ended his illustrious United career with a move down the East Lancs Road to Everton in 2005 and became captain at Goodison as he made over 300 appearances. Known for his versatility, he could play anywhere in defence or midfield. In total he made 59 appearances for England and was selected for three European Championship squads.
