“His influence in the dressing room is not something you will understand unless you’ve been in there with him. At times, he was almost the glue that connected it. You talk about the British players and the foreign players, and he had equally good relationships with all. He’s so vibrant around the dressing room, a huge character. He has a fantastic personality. He’s a leader, somebody who would really get everybody going before a game. What surprised me, when I first started hearing him talk in the changing room, he was really passionate about the things he was saying to the team. ‘Come on boys, this is our game today.’ That’s not something you often hear from somebody who has come to the club, rather than coming through the ranks. Sometimes it actually has more impact coming from somebody who has come in rather than from somebody who has been at the club for a long time. It did with him, and I think that’s when Sir Alex Ferguson and the players first saw the leadership side of him and that would ultimately make him a regular captain.” - Gary Neville
We have had some fantastic times together, we lifted all of those trophies together and that night in Moscow will live with us all forever. Every single time I stepped out in that shirt I knew I was playing for the badge and for a very special club.
