He believes that Ferguson’s technique of gradually refreshing his Manchester United squad over two decades is far more effective model for success than signing a huge number of players in one transfer window.
Neville wrote for EA Sports: “He (Ferguson) was always massaging the squad summer by summer. There was always two of three in and out..
“But there was always a core of players who’d been there for six or seven years and I think that’s what you really want.
“I think it’s very difficult to integrate so many players all at once when you don’t get given the time.
“Ian Holloway signed a lot of players at Crystal Palace, it was revealed this week they’ve got the biggest squad in Europe’s top divisions, and yet he was out of a job a few months later!”
