Fergie denounces Neville talk

08 Jan 2010 - 11:50:22

Sir Alex Ferguson has described as "nonsense" a flurry of reports claiming that Gary Neville has decided to retire at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old Manchester United captain has made almost 600 appearances for the Old Trafford club during 18 years in the first team, but his much-criticised performance in last weekend's FA Cup defeat to Leeds United has led to suggestions of an impending retirement.

Neville's battle with injuries during the past three seasons has added fuel to the fire.

However, Ferguson has rubbished the retirement talk surrounding his skipper and further suggestions that he had already lined up Wayne Rooney to take over the armband.

"There has not been a decision about Gary Neville," he said.

"Why make a decision about his future when we don't need to? You don't make decisions like that in the middle of the season.

"It is a load of nonsense."
