Neville denies quit reports
11 Feb 2008 - 11:13:08
Manchester United defender Gary Neville has dismissed fresh speculation suggesting that an ankle injury may force him to retire from the game in the near future.
The 32-year-old England international has not featured for the Red Devils since March 2007, having sustained ankle ligament damage against Bolton Wanderers.
However, right-back Neville insists that he will return to the United fold as soon as he gets over a number of niggles he has suffered during his prolonged recovery.
He told United Review: "The fact I've been out for so long brings about speculation regarding whether or not I'll make it back. I understand that.
"Ironically my ankle has been okay for the last couple of months, I've just picked up little knocks here and there that have lasted a couple of weeks or so.
"They can really set you back when you've been out for so long.
"I'm training again and I am focused on getting fit. I'm not going to put a timescale on it or name a game when I'll be back.
"Once I get fit and I'm doing the best I can to get to that point, I've no doubts I'll be okay."
