Everton utility player Phil Neville will leave the Goodison Park club at the end of the season.
Phil Neville has announced he will leave Everton at the end of the season.
The utility player very rarely features in the Toffees side at present, and has not done so for quite some time.
The 36 year-old Neville last started in the Premier League in February, in a 0-2 defeat to former club Manchester United at Old Trafford, and was culpable for both goals.
Interestingly, he was heavily criticised by older brother Gary for his performance against the Red Devils – and with Everton manager David Moyes present in the studio too.
Perhaps it was Gary Neville then that played a surprise role in Phil Neville’s exile from the first team at Goodison Park.
Regardless, the younger Neville brother had a fine career both with Manchester United and Everton.
He won six Premier League titles, three FA Cups, one Champions League and one World Club Cup at Old Trafford, before moving to the blue half of Stanley Park and skippering Everton to some impressive finishes in the top flight.
Neville always set a fine example for his team-mates in training, and will leave Goodison Park on good terms.
“It’s been an honour to play for and captain Everton Football Club. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time on Merseyside and will leave with immense pride,” he told the Everton official website.
