Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville wishes to retain his coaching post at Old Trafford amid the appointment of new manager Louis van Gaal.
“I was first-team coach last year. I'm not sure what my role will be next year, but over the next couple of weeks, I'll find out about my role and hopefully I'll be involved at Manchester United.” - Phil Neville
"I hope so. It's business as usual as far as I'm concerned," the 37-year-old told Sky Sports.
"I was first-team coach last year. I'm not sure what my role will be next year, but over the next couple of weeks, I'll find out about my role and hopefully I'll be involved at Manchester United."
"The most important thing is that the club and team improve from last season. The results weren't what this club is expected of. Regardless of my position, the most important thing is the team and us challenging for league titles."
Meanwhile, the 62-year-old former Bayern Munich boss still has his hands full at the moment as he is still in charge of the Holland squad that will compete in the World Cup in June, and Neville knows that it won't be until after the quadrennial tournament that the club affairs will be ironed out.
"He'll have his processes, his structures and his team and you just hope you're a part of it," he added.
"He's obviously a busy man with Holland at the World Cup. It's good to get the new manager announced and the club can start looking forward again and looking to improve on last season."
