Gary Neville quotes

Aguero has been the best striker in the Premier League for the last five or six seasons. Since Thierry Henry left he has been the best striker for me. A fantastic player and wonderful to watch. Then also Carlos Tevez, who on his day was

You look at Manchester City over the last 4-5 years and they have been littered with fantastic players and should have won more titles in my opinion. They have only won two, which is fantastic considering where the club has been, but they should have been better and could have had three or four. You could put him in the Keane, Gerrard, Lampard, Vieira category for around 3-4 years when he was sensational. Toure, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Kompany will go down as one of the best spines you will see in the Premier League. They were fantastic

The three at the back suits David Luiz perfectly… He doesn't suit playing in a back

He knows he can't go up and down all the time now. He knows he can't go past players all the time. He'll become a goalscorer, a poacher and a good

I was thinking the other day, what's the long game for him? And I wonder if he's going to go on and play into his 40s. I wonder if he's building up for a long career as a centre-forward, where he can still score two goals and live off moments. He's living off moments more than his all-round performance now. Since he's gone to Real Madrid he's contributed enormously to everything they've done but he's living more off moments rather than a contribution through a whole 90

I think he'll go on for a long, long time. And in this game, he's becoming a goal-scorer, he's getting in the box more, he's coming across the near post, his heading is incredible

He'll be thinking Pele. Those numbers. Those scandalous numbers you think you can never achieve, the appearances, the goals, and that to me is where it's going. I think he'll play for longer than Lionel Messi, I think he'll score more goals in the end and will go on to do incredible things. I think we've seen the transformation of a player. We've seen Ryan Giggs go from a flying winger to someone who played more centrally as a midfielder. We're seeing Cristiano now as a

The news of Terry leaving is incredibly strange timing, I don't get it at all. I'm not really sure who it suits, maybe John Terry a little bit, but I'm not even sure about that. It may be a distraction for the dressing room, the club and the fans will be sad today especially after the big game they lost yesterday. Maybe he's signed a pre-agreement with somebody and they couldn't keep it quiet any longer. They haven't kept a clean sheet for quite a bit now and I think he could be quite useful for

If they needed someone with experience in this last month to get them over the line, he might be the man they need to call on. He's got the experience, the resilience, the robustness and that toughness which would get his team-mates over line. He may be Chelsea's most important player in the next few

I'd like to see Zlatan stay in a different role to what he's had this season where it's him or

Why can't you have three or four strikers and pick from a pool? It's not like Zlatan plays or nothing. On Sunday he looked delighted when the team scored and he worked when he came on. I don't see why it has to be an either or, they can play together potentially. I'd like to see him phased over another season whereby [Anthony] Martial, Rashford and maybe someone else comes in and you see a changing of the guard, but you still have the experience that is required

Would Zlatan have done to Chelsea what Rashford did? Absolutely no chance. But would Rashford have done in that EFL Cup final what Zalatan did? Probably no chance, it would be very difficult. There's still a place for Zlatan. I used to like being part of a squad that had four strikers. Actually you had a Zlatan, you might have had a Chicharito to come on and you had a

I think there's quite a few who would be able to play in that team. You have to remember, these players now it might be that they're not as good of a team yet as the 1999 side but individually there are some outstanding players in the current squad that could play in that team no doubt. There are some outstanding players. Ibrahimovic, [Wayne] Rooney, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, Pogba, [Eric] Bailly, [Antonio] Valencia, De Gea. They are all top players who can play at the highest

Individually, you could definitely get to a point whereby one or two individuals could come into that team and still be very, very

Azpilicueta, when I watch him, he's as near to perfect as possible when it comes to defending; he's

Singapore was an obvious choice (to expand their business) because of our partners, Rowsley and Peter Lin, whom we've worked with and is a good friend. So this looked like a good place to expand

They aren't United fans really. They can't be if they are against a kid that's been at the club since he was

They need quality, more subtlety and more killer instinct in the final third. The positive is he knows where to improve. He needs players capable of winning matches for him. The ones currently up top are not doing that. There's talk of Antoine Griezmann and I'm sure other clubs will be after him as well, but Jose must be lining up for another big summer. It's not just the attack because there are some shortcomings in defence too. They need a centre-back, they need a holding midfielder. I think five or six will come in, with two or three

I think he's lining it up. You think about the sales of Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay for around £

Ozil goes for a ball and bottles the challenge when his manager's life is on the line. Arsene Wenger deserves Ozil to go in for that

There is three instances and I'm being harsh, but if you are talking about throwing the cat among the pigeons, let's do it. Let's throw it out

Theo Walcott should sprint off the pitch and shake the manager's hand and say, Thanks very much for giving me a game today. I'm

He might have a bit of a problem with his Achilles and I might be being very harsh, but he went off against Bayern Munich and went off in this big game. Arsene Wenger deserved for Koscielny to at least have a go for five minutes in the second half. Go on mate, have a go for us. No, he didn't. Walcott trudges off the pitch. He hasn't played well, but his attitude is, I have scored a goal, you shouldn't take me off.' Yes you should, because you were poor and that is a matter of

Arsene Wenger has touched on the chance Mesut Ozil had and I might be being a bit harsh with three things here, but I'm going to say them anyway. Mesut Ozil goes through on goal and bottles out of a challenge when his manager's backside is on the line. Go for a 50-50 or nick in front and get the penalty – win the ball. Mesut Ozil should go for a 50-50 with the goalkeeper. That would help, wouldn't it. Koscielny – he always goes off. He is a centre-back. He plays to half-time and then goes

When you set off at the start of the season with a manager then he has to be your manager for the entire season. Football would support it, in terms of the professional side - I'm not sure whether the owners would. But it would mean the players would know you're going to be the manager until the end of the season, they'd have to get on with it. There have been examples where it's worked when managers are sacked and where it hasn't. I'm not sure there is a distinction between

It seems to be more the done thing where you do sack the manager at the earliest point as the players respond. We have seen that at Leicester - what an incredible bounce they have had. It's happened at Swansea and

He is going through a period of his career where obviously the performances and appearances aren't the same as they were. People tend to forget what happened previously. All he needs to do is retire and all of a sudden everybody would remember the greatness of him. We are seeing it with [Arsene] Wenger, Rooney, Steven Gerrard, you see this approach towards them and then they retire and people respect and enjoy what they've seen for the last 15

He will get the credit he deserves eventually because he's had a magnificent career. He deserves a tremendous amount of credit for what he's achieved in terms of club and country appearances, goals, commitment and leadership. He is just going through a natural period that most players

Him being there next season is doubtful just because of the noise. I hope he's there next season. I think Wayne still has a lot to offer, but he wants to play more often. There's definitely some doubt, but there's still two to three months left in the season. United have plenty to play for, including qualifying for the Champions League. My view would be, maybe his mind can be changed by what happens in those months. With Ibrahimovic missing it is an opportunity for Marcus Rashford, but also for Rooney potentially. Look at life nowadays and social media, we're so quick to judge

I'd say yes. Because of the professionalism, the training and his commitment to the club. I think United needed personalities and characters after what happened in the previous few seasons. A lot of United's success has revolved around him. It will be impossible for him to play every single match in that period. There has to be a dip at some point. Ultimately, it's how Mourinho manages him over a two-year period because he wants to play every match. The reality is, I'm not quite sure that will be able to happen as he continues to get a little bit

I was talking to Giggsy on the way over and saying this development game is like playing away at Liverpool every week. There is no doubt we have not pleased everybody. We have tried to listen and made many, many changes. We have currently asked Manchester city council to not determine our application because we are going to make further refinements to the project. There is no point in me pointing to underused streets and then in six to seven years we deliver this project and still have underused streets, so we will

There are going to be two big clubs and big managers to drop out of that top four. They could potentially be the weakest in some ways, but the fact they've got a really good run does give them an advantage to get in there. But it's so tight and it changes week by week. We've seen some incredible performances from them in big games where teams have come at them and are open and expansive. But when Liverpool play a team who sit back and go into their shape, they don't seem to have a Plan

They don't have a Plan B in terms of being able to control the game in a different style, and when teams don't allow them to use their energy to press they're far less effective. They have a great chance of getting into the top four, but they do have to overcome this style

This current Liverpool are held back by the fact they haven't got the strongest squad, but they have been helped this season by the fact they've got a good

The challenge at United was probably bigger than what everyone thought. When I look at it now, I don't think anyone could've won the league with United this

It comes down to what Mourinho prioritises. The FA Cup could be a competition that United sacrifice because they have to try and get into the Champions League. Obviously the only two routes are the Europa League and Premier League games. It will be a big challenge mentally on Monday. It might be the one, at this moment in time, that they can sacrifice in terms of trying not to complicate the fixture congestion any

There is still a bit to go, they [Chelsea] still have some work to do. It won't be as comfortable as we think, there might be some dropped points in the next few

I thought United would have a chance at the start of the season. But when Diego Costa and Eden Hazard turned up and they corrected their defensive problems by going three at the back, it became pretty apparent quickly that the old Chelsea were back. There's a lot of Premier League winners in that Chelsea team. The issue has been you don't know which Chelsea will turn up from one season from the next. Once the real Costa and Hazard turned up and you had David Luiz in defence and [N'Golo] Kante in midfield, you have a championship-winning team, or the makings of

Wenger deserves an incredible amount of respect. I accept the arguments around why some people think his time has come to an end. But what I would say, there is a way to do that and not to do it in terms of what he has achieved at the club. I suppose it's traditional principles, there is nothing more I'd like to see than a club stand by a manager and Wenger. In a time when managers get sacked every five minutes, when you think of the Claudio Ranieri sacking this season, I'd love Arsenal to stand by him and somehow prove everyone wrong in the next few

I accept in this moment in time, the ground is very

He doesn't need to justify himself for winning his team a penalty!feedback
