Man Utd captain Neville: Finance issues none of players' business

Manchester United captain Gary Neville says the club's financial doubts is of no concern to the players.

Neville is adamant the whole thing is none of his team-mates' business and could not be used as an excuse for failure on the pitch.

"All the speculation about the finances at Manchester United does not affect the players," he told the Sunday Times in Malta.

"We are always very well protected and never get involved in the financial side of things.

"There have been talks and rumours over the years going back to when the Glazers took over, and even when Michael Knighton nearly took over in the 1980s.

"As players we never get involved in those things; our job is purely on the pitch and we allow people who are paid to do jobs in other areas of the club to do their job.

"It is nothing to do with us at all."
