Papers: Neville to return

Adam Crafton writes in the Daily Mail...
Neville back at Old Trafford
Phil Neville has returned to Manchester United as David Moyes's new first-team coach. Former United defender Neville was photographed arriving at Carrington early this morning, where he is expected to be announced as Moyes's latest backroom appointment alongside four former Everton colleagues in Chris Woods, Steve Round, Robbie Cooke and Jimmy Lumsden. Moyes took charge of his first training session at United's Carrington training ground today and Neville was thrust straight into action, along with Lumsden and Round. Neville, 36, ended his 18-year playing career last month. But it was at Old Trafford where the ex-England defender made his name after emerging with the much-celebrated Class of ’92. He made over 250 appearances for the current Barclays Premier League champions before spending eight years at Goodison Park under Moyes.

Meanwhile, in the Daily Express, an alleged conversation between Sir Alex Ferguson and Spanish journalists at Wimbledon is relayed. The former United boss was apparently 'chased up the stairs' and asked for a word before replying: 'Yes, adios!'
