Neville: Reds set for big month

Gary Neville believes this April could be the biggest month he has known in all his time with United.

The recently-retired defender is fully aware that the coming weeks will make or break the campaign for his friends and former team-mates. Speaking on MUTV's Live at the Red Cafe, Neville stated the league title is the priority but he's confident the Reds can continue to compete on three fronts with key clashes coming up against Chelsea in the Champions League and Manchester City in the FA Cup.

When asked what Sir Alex Ferguson will be doing to maintain his squad as the games come thick and fast, he replied: "I think it's just simple things, there's no complication. Keep the players fit, make sure they're fresh and not over-trained, make sure they're prepared.

"You really have got games now every weekend and midweek - it's probably as big a month as I've seen in my 20 years here when you look at the matches coming up in the next four or five weeks and the scale of them. From that perspective, it's just about making sure the preparations are the same and keeping the players fit and you don't get sendings off. So discipline is important - they're the ones out of your control a little bit as the manager needs his full squad at this time of the season."
