Neville considering retirement after Everton departure

Phil Neville has admitted he could retire once he leaves Everton at the end of the season, Sky Sports has reported.

It was confirmed in April that former Manchester United player Neville would leave Goodison Park this summer, when his contract expires, but the 36-year-old does not know if he will seek another club or turn his hand to coaching, having worked under the outgoing United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, and his replacement, Everton boss David Moyes, throughout his career.

Neville added that he will speak with his family before coming to a decision. He said: “ I am not so sure whether I will be playing football next season. I will sit down with my wife, and my mum and dad, and I will look forward to the next chapter in my career.

Beginning his career with United, Neville moved to Everton in 2005 and spent eight years with the club, replacing David Weir as captain when the Scot moved to Rangers. Neville will be succeeded by Phil Jagielka has Everton skipper, and was afforded a guard of honour and standing ovation after Everton’s final home game of the season, a 2-0 win over West Ham.
