Phil Neville quotes

Oh, by far [it is a regret]. We didn't have success and I think it was purely and simply because of the Premier League. I'll never forget going away with England and, in 1999-2000, United would have had big games in the Champions League. And, at the time, you would probably have said that the league and Champions League were becoming more important than playing international football. I think now playing for your club is more rewarding - and definitely of a better standard - than playing international football and it was becoming that way.feedback

Oh this is a nonsense. Look at Wayne Rooney, there: old school, looking forward, not hugging and kissing. I think Monreal thinks he's going to a christening and not a football match. I can't imagine doing that to Martin Keown ten years ago in the tunnel at Highbury. It doesn't matter if you know them. You see each other in the bar afterwards but before the game you need to concentrate.feedback

It was a game that was clearly a nuisance for him, sandwiched between the two legs of United's Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo that he has made it obvious is his priority. So, for United, Sunday was just a case of survival - to get off that pitch without getting any more injuries - or at least that was how it looked.feedback

It was a match between the teams in fifth and sixth place in the Premier League but it felt more like it was ninth versus 10th, in one of those dead rubbers you get at the end of the season. Yes, Arsenal won, to end United's long unbeaten run, but nobody really cared - including United manager Jose Mourinho. It was the first time Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has beaten him in a competitive game, at the 16th attempt and after 13 years of trying. But watching Mourinho afterwards, it was probably the first time in about six months that I have seen him relaxed and smiling.feedback

For him to come off the back of that week, for all the hard work he has put in, I think it would have set him back. If I was Ross Barkley, I would have questioned 'do I really want to play for England here? I'm in the best form of my career and I don't even get on the pitch when everyone else has'. That was the killer for him. He would have gone into the game on Saturday trying too hard to show the world why he should have got on the pitch. I expected it because I know the kid and I know how much he wants to succeed, but it's one game.feedback

Are we missing something not looking after this kid? Because you speak to everyone and everyone believes in this kid in terms of the talent he has and it's a hammer blow. How many hammer blows can he keep taking in terms of England.feedback

The England thing affected Ross after the Euros too, when he was left out, and he came back because of Koeman. Ronald Koeman kept hitting him with a stick and getting the best out of him by being hard on him.feedback

All the work Koeman has done with Ross was paying off, but then comes another hammer blow with England. England can sometimes be an absolute nuisance because it can catapult you up to stardom and absolutely take everything away from players.feedback

It's happened to me, you go away with real high expectations and you don't kick a ball, and you lose the rhythm and your confidence drops a bit.feedback

I actually expected that performance from Ross on Saturday, I really did after what happened with England. England would have been a massive disappointment for the kid. He's in the best form of his career and you go away with England and you don't even get on the pitch. That's a hammer blow for the lad. Just put him on for five or 10 minutes. For someone who has been out of the squad since the summer, give him a carrot. You don't want to give away England caps, but he had earned the right to play some part in one of the games.feedback

You go away with England, train, stay in the hotel and see everyone else playing. You are better off staying at your club because you'd probably train a little bit harder, you can switch off by having three or four days off and you're fresh. But you've been stuck away with the international team, you haven't kicked a ball and the disappointment can have a real detrimental effect on you.feedback

When I see Sane play I remember Gareth Bale when he went from Southampton to Tottenham. Early in the season you thought 'Sane, oh he's young a little bit weak, he's not used to English football'. Gareth Bale was like that but what I'm seeing now is something similar to Gareth Bale. The way he has devastating pace, the way he goes past people with that power and pace. Simplicity at times, he's not someone who'll do two, three step-overs, it's running behind, pace and devastating finish. He could be a sensational player.feedback

I was at home (on Saturday) and loving all the upsets. Every team's making changes and I think it's making the FA Cup better.feedback

We are all great friends. And we said that now that we are at the end of our careers – there is only Ryan still going – that we should maybe do something. It was the 20th anniversary since we won the Youth Cup in 1992 and we wanted to do something.feedback
