Neville, Butt admit Man Utd futures on the line

Manchester United pair Nicky Butt and Phil Neville will soon learn their future.

Neville, who was brought back to Old Trafford in a coaching role by David Moyes last summer, has admitted he has no idea whether he'll be kept on at the club.

And Butt, who was working with United's under 21s before Moyes' arrival, shares a similarly uncertain future.

Neville said: "I am still at United, I think my future will be resolved in the next five days.

"I am speaking to the chief executive in the next five days and it will all be sorted.

"It might be the case that I might have to go and pursue other areas for next season. That is football.

"But I think I will always be involved in some capacity at Man Utd. Once you are a part of Manchester United you are part of it for life.

"I came back into football 12 months because David Moyes asked me to come back.

"I probably wouldn't have come into coaching if it hadn't been for the fact I was working for David Moyes at Manchester United. The opportunity was too good to turn down.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my 12 months in coaching. It is something I really want to do and it will be something I do in the future."

Butt said: "It is a bit unstable at the minute because the manager has not been with us.

"He has had bigger things on his mind with Holland but hopefully over the next couple of weeks he will be in training and we will sit down and discuss what role, if any, I have got."
