"Gary Neville is doing okay," explained Ferguson. "What we're trying to do with him is not exhaust him training session after session.
"We want to get him into the momentum so he has no more niggles as it's proving to be the main problem.
"Gary can't do anything by three quarters or half. He's got to be 100 percent, full out so we're trying to slow him down in that department and combat that problem with the one or two niggles and get him back."
