Neville insists Man Utd will survive Ronaldo departure

Manchester United captain Gary Neville says they will survive the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid.

"The manager has probably built four or five different teams within the period he's been at United, and it's not been a case of being unsuccessful for three or four years in between while he's been creating a different team," Neville told the People.

"It's been a brilliant job. Big players have come and gone down the years but the club's success has carried on - and that's down to the way the manager has adapted to situations.

"There has never been a knee-jerk reaction at this club because the manager doesn't operate that way.

"I've heard fans wonder how the club will replace influential players who have been sold but you have to trust the manager - and his record speaks for itself."
