Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville has urged Manchester United to start fast against Everton if they are to come out with the needed victory on Sunday.
The defender who is a brother to former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville ended his football career playing for Everton which leaves him on the edge as to the team he would like to support.
Although he played for Everton, he is a breed of Manchester United and he has been monitoring the recent performances of both teams even though he thinks the trip to Russia to face FC Krasnodar on Thursday could hamper Everton’s ability to repeat last season’s win at Old Trafford.
The defender also highlighted the fact that Everton have conceded too many goals this season but also feels their performance away at Anfield last weekend is commendable.
Manchester United’s injury problems is seen as the main issue with the Red Devils and the former player believes the team should not be judged till all the injured players are back with the team.
Additionally, Ji-Sung Park has returned to Manchester United and was delighted to be back at Old Trafford on Saturday following his appointment as Manchester United’s new club ambassador.
The former midfielder took advantage of the Everton match being played a day later to have a private look around the stadium he called home for seven years.
He also paid a visit to the Aon Training Complex where he caught up with the club’s retired kit manager Albert Morgan, a good friend during his time as a player.
The former United player never thought he will return someday but he is pleased to be with the club.
Park was the first Asian to play for Manchester United and remains an iconic figure for many United fans around the globe, not least in his native continent.
Manchester United’s brand of football and history makes them a club to beat in sponsorship deals and revenue.
The recent use of club legends in different capabilities is also adding to the club’s stature.
Park’s return to Manchester united will help the team in increasing their followers in the continent of Asia and may as well increase their revenue.
This also will leave a standing legacy about the club and will help growing players dream of achieving the same.
Phil Neville and other legends are good examples to follow for the youngsters and Manchester United’s culture and tradition may be back soonest with the legends all coming back to fill a position or the other.
