When did Gary Neville retire?

Twenty years after debuting for Manchester United, Gary announced his retirement from the sport on February 2, 2011.

He made 602 appearances, won eight Premier League titles, three FA Cups and one European Cup.

Gary also played 85 times for England's national football team.

Former manager Sir Alex Ferguson said that Gary was"the best English right-back of his generation".

In 1992, Gary debuted for Manchester United with an appearance in the UEFA Cup against Torpedo Moscow.

He'd captained United earlier that year to the FA Youth Cup over Crystal Palace.

The squad consisted of other legendary football names including David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Keith Gillespie, Robbie Savage and Paul Scholes.

In 1995, he started in Manchester United's FA Cup final loss to Everton and later played for England's squad for the first time in a friendly against Japan.

Gary had taken the captain's armband from Roy Keane in November 2005 but within 18 months had sustained a broken ankle against Bolton.

Despite returning to Manchester United and repeatedly battling against muscular complaints, he lost his automatic place on the team.

In 2020, Gary revealed how he was still haunted by his final displays in a United shirt -particularly the very last one in the 2-1 win at West Brom on New Year’s Day 2011 when he was subbed after 71 minutes.

“My last three-and-a-half years were disrupted heavily by injury and I was nowhere near the level of the other players.

“I was amongst an incredible team and I felt every day in training I was inferior.

“In the last six-to-eight months I was at the club I felt embarrassed. I didn’t want to be picked. I knew I was a risk if I went out on the pitch.

“In training every single day I was looking at Rafael and the other lads - the energy, the speed of the game had shifted beyond me and it was obvious for me to see."
