Phil Neville has named the biggest lesson he was taught during his time at Manchester United.
Neville came through the club’s academy ranks and was part of the Class of ’92. Neville went on to make just under 400 appearances for the club during an 11-year stay after making his debut, in which he won multiple major honours under Sir Alex Ferguson.
The former full back is currently in management with David Beckham’s Inter Miami and he’s now reflected on his experience of making his breakthrough at United. Neville has admitted he was taught a winning mentality in the United dressing room.

“The senior players in the team just taught us how to win games of football,” Neville told BT Sport.
“They taught us what winning was all about – win at all costs. You die on the pitch, for the badge, for the team and we just went on to win, win and win. We went up to Newcastle [March ’96] and in the first half, we could have been five down at halftime.
“Peter Schmeichel was incredible. It was 0-0 at half-time and Sir Alex Ferguson ripped out heads off really. Second half, we played well and Cantona scored the winning goal. It just felt amazing [95/96 Premier League win].
“It felt as if a dream had just come true.”
