Neville no longer a Man Utd coach

Phil Neville has ended speculation over his role at Manchester United by revealing that he is not on Louis van Gaal's coaching staff. reports the Manchester Evening News. The former Reds utility man was brought back to the club by David Moyes, and stayed on under Ryan Giggs as part of a team also including Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.

The arrival of Louis van Gaal and Giggs' appointment as his No.2 had led to uncertainty over whether Neville, Scholes and Butt would be retained.

However, on the day it was confirmed that the 37-year-old would take up a role as a pundit on BBC's Match of the Day, Neville has explained that he will not be part of the Dutchman's staff.

A fan tweeted: "Phil, are you still on the coaching team at United? #legend", to which Neville simply replied: "No".

Alongside his role with the BBC, Neville is set to focus on his commitments with Salford City FC.

The semi-professional local club was purchased by Neville, his brother Gary, and their fellow United academy graduates Giggs, Butt and Scholes.
