Fergie Praise For Neville

Last updated : 21 July 2008 By Sam
Neville is keen to reclaim the right-back slot for United this coming season after an injury plagued 2007-08 campaign and he played his second pre-season game against The Chiefs at Newlands.

"I'm very pleased. He played his first 45 minutes in 16 months against Aberdeen and a week later he's managed another 60 minutes," Fergie said.

"Gary's a remarkable man and, as everyone who's played football will tell you, when you're in your 30s and you're forced out of the game for 16 months, the comeback is very difficult.

"But he showed tremendous enthusiasm and the speed of his play was quite phenomenal."
