Neville ready to return


Neville ready to return

Gary Neville has admitted it would be special to return against Man City for Man Utd on the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster. Neville has not appeared since last March.

"It means the world to me every time I go out on the football pitch, but on a day like this it would be an incredibly proud moment," said Neville in the Mail on Sunday.

"It was an awfully tragic event, but the sense of feeling runs through the club - we owe them so much. The way they played the game, the way the team play now, comes from that era.

"They (shirts) will be numbered 1 to 16, no names, no sponsors. To wear one of those shirts would be so special.

"Everyone is desperate to play every single week, but on that particular day they will be absolutely desperate to play."
