Do you think Gary Neville will ever give anyone an easy ride?“I sat next to Gary for 11 years in the dressing room and he is different class. He is paid to be a pundit now and I think he is fantastic at his job. Gary is unbelievable.“But he has been a manager as well. He was caretaker manager at Valencia, so he knows what position I’m in. He’s been a player, he’s been a manager, and now he’s a great pundit.“There’s also Scholsey, Rio, Keano. They all have strong opinions and are entitled to those opinions. But they know me as a person. They know how I work and how the club works, so they understand the decisions I will make. They understand that results don’t just come with a flick of my fingers.“But for me this job is about getting better performances and getting the team to improve. If the performances improve then the results will come. If not….then we’ll see.“Results have been mixed this season, but the Premier League has changed. When I played here we maybe had one challenger in Arsenal for a period and then Chelsea. Now there are five or six teams challenging, so it is a completely different competition.“I never thought I would be manager here so I’m just going to enjoy these five months and do the best I can. It’s about getting the fans smiling.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img
