Manchester United Legend To Be Axed By The Club Despite Loyal Service

Posted by

Neville is expected to be the latest to leave Old Trafford.

After a disappointing first season post Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United are keen to undergo an overhaul this summer and chief executive Ed Woodward has told coach and club legend Phil Neville he has no future at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mail.

Neville was appointed as part of the backroom staff last summer when David Moyes took charge and even when the manager was sacked the former Everton star stayed on to help interim boss Ryan Giggs.

Yet despite avoiding that first cull that came with the dismissal of Moyes, the 37  year-old has now been told by Woodward that he will not be with the Red Devils next season – something that many think is unfair treatment.

Along with Neville, goalkeeping coach Chris Woods has also been told he will be axed this summer, despite being greatly credited with the improved form of No.1 David de Gea.

This double dismissal, along with the news that Rio Ferdinand has also been told he will not be given a new contract with United, is beginning to make Woodward a very unpopular figure at the Theatre of Dreams.

However, after finishing in seventh position with their lowest ever Premier League points tally and no Champions League football for the first time 1995, wholesale changes are certainly needed.

Louis van Gaal is expected to be named as the new manager, whilst former first team coach and Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen is likely to be offered a return to the club alongside his fellow Dutchman.
