Neville eager for United spot

14 Jun 2009 - 16:03:16

Manchester United's veteran full-back Gary Neville is determined to try and regain a regular starting spot with the Premier League champions.

The 34-year-old has been linked with a possible move to Middlesbrough, but insists that he is not about to end his illustrious career at Old Trafford.

He told the People: "I played a good number of games last season and I hope that continues next season, because playing for this club is as special to me now as it was when I first pulled on the shirt as a schoolboy.

"Full-backs have an important role, particularly at United, in terms of the way we attack and the way in which there's a transition from defence through our full-backs to attack.

"We have always set up play and been part of the extra-man situation and we always play with width.

"The way you see guys like Patrice Evra and Rafael Da Silva attacking, they are more like wingers who can defend - they aren't just full-backs any more.

"Before I got injured a couple of years ago you'd say I was running forward nearly all the time during the game.

"Don't get me wrong - I don't do that in the same eye-catching way as they do, but you understand the changes and development in the game and the way I've had to adapt."
