United skipper Gary Neville wants a repeat last year’s success after missing out on the Reds’ Premier League and Champions League double.
The 33-year-old had to sit out the Moscow triumph and United’s 17th championship success. But he’s hoping to continue the trophy haul this term.
“It’s great to feel part of it again,” he tells November’s Inside United, in shops on Wednesday.
“That’s the worst thing about being injured – you don’t feel part of what’s going on and you feel you’re not contributing. And I’m not a great substitute, I’m hardly going to come on and change the game!”
Neville is also excited by the prospect of Dimitar Berbatov gelling with United’s array of attacking stars. He says: “I’m excited by Dimitar’s arrival and I’m sure it’s a signing all the fans are excited about. I know he had other offers but, to be honest, they were nowhere near as good as the option he was given of coming here.”
