Neville Dismisses Quit Reports

Last updated : 11 February 2008 By Sam
The 32-year-old United right-back has been sidelined for almost a year with an ankle ligament injury sustained against Bolton Wanderers last March and has suffered niggles in his bid to return to the first team squad.

However, Neville has denied that he is about to quit the game: "The fact I've been out for so long brings about speculation regarding whether or not I'll make it back. I understand that," he told United Review.

"Ironically my ankle has been okay for the last couple of months, I've just picked up little knocks here and there that have lasted a couple of weeks or so.

"They can really set you back when you've been out for so long.

"I'm training again and I am focused on getting fit. I'm not going to put a timescale on it or name a game when I'll be back.

"Once I get fit and I'm doing the best I can to get to that point, I've no doubts I'll be okay."
