[Gary Neville names Bryan Robson as his hero] I always think of him giving everything for the cause at the defensive end of the pitch and then throwing everything at the ball to get it in the back of the net at the other end

[Gary Neville says wanted to see agents out of the game] [Players] need good advice, from a solicitor or an accountant – but they don’t need people taking hundreds of thousands off them

[Quote from Gary Neville’s Autobiography RED] Steven Gerrard is undoubtedly a world class player and I wish he’d played for United. I went on a tapping-up mission at Euro 2004 when I knew Chelsea were trying to take advantage of Liverpool being in turmoil. ‘Come play for United’, I said one day to Steven when we were in the hotel. ‘The fans will take to you in no time’. He just laughed, and said: ‘I’ll do it if you go to Anfield’

[Gary Neville on Paul Scholes] I wouldn’t swap Paul Scholes for anybody. He is quite simply the most complete footballer I have ever played with. He is the best

[Gary Neville on Thierry Henry] We were blessed in this country to see Thierry playing at his peak, potentially one of the greatest players in the world, and even if you supported another team you couldn’t help but enjoy watching him play. It’s always a shame when such a career comes to an end

[Gary Neville talks about coaching Valencia] I am absolutely thrilled to be given this opportunity with Valencia. Valencia are a huge football club of immense standing and I know from my time as a player the passion and dedication of the Valencia fans. I am really looking forward to working with the club’s talented group of players and am excited about the challenge ahead [Note: Valencia is owned by Peter Lim, the Singaporean businessman who also has a 50% stake in Salford City which he co-owns with The Class of 92 – Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes]

[Neville thanked Sky saying] they have fully supported and understood the decision that I have made to go to Valencia for the next five months

[Gary Neville talks about the Paul Pogba who was just signed by Man Utd] I think it is a big fee, but the Premier League was losing players left, right and centre to Spain - all the grade A players

We couldn’t entice players to come here and we couldn’t keep them when we had the best ones. At least now it looks like we are signing a player who would be regarded as a top signing of the summer

[Gary Neville explains his confusion at Chelsea’s decision to re-sign defender David Luiz] I’m very surprised to see him with Conte as a manager. I think of Conte centre-backs, the last few years in Italy with Juventus, very solid, know how to play in a zonal system, dependable, and I think David Luiz is obviously a big talent. But I would have never of put those two together. There’s something bizarre about it. It’s a bit strange. I’m trying to think of an analogy to describe it. It’s a bit like me with a Miss World

[Gary Neville on Harry Kane’s current performance] I don’t think he’s near his best. He’s not in the same situation he was. He said himself he’s not played his best in the last few weeks and some of his work [against Watford] was inconsistency

There were moments in the game where you thought he’s still coming back from an injury and not quite right, but there were parts of the game where the confidence was coming back. For instance, the composure to be able to sweep the ball home for his goal after just slipping as well, it takes some doing

[Gary Neville compares Harry Kane with Alan Shearer] He’s not the type of striker you drop because he offers too much. I always used to think about Alan Shearer when I was playing against him and with him all those years ago. He’ll have had moments in his game where he wouldn’t have been at the top of his game but you’d never consider dropping him because you know full well the guy is gold

Kane is like that. These are players that perform every single day at the highest level. It’s just about biding your time with him

He has dipped below his best in this last few weeks. He has been injured, to be fair, and there have been some issues around him off the pitch which are always a distraction, but he’s got to clear that up in this next two and three weeks because he’s obviously got a World Cup

If Tottenham can finish in the Champions League and Harry Kane can have a great World Cup then that will be fantastic for Tottenham but it will also be fantastic for England as well

[Neville thinks the social media storm has been a distraction for Kane] I’ve been really surprised and quite confused these past three or four weeks because - one, he’s intelligent, he’s a brilliant professional and [secondly] Spurs are a shrewd club. But the distraction that has been caused by the disputed goal, and then the social media thing that the FA did … the way in which it has been handled has been terrible

I always think that if you’re bothered by something the quickest way to get rid of it is not to add fuel to a fire. I think the way that they’ve responded has not been wise. I have to say that all these players have agents, lawyers, accountants, people around them that support them, family. They really should’ve gripped this situation for him. Told him to stand clear, take the sting out of it, but he hasn’t. If you show you’re bothered by something [on social media], they’ll go for you more

[Liverpool’s defence are breaking records after conceding just seven goals in 18 Premier League games] I didn’t see this coming. You can’t go from being a team that concedes 50 goals a season and then got to this without something incredible happening. It’s personnel, obviously, but also the work they are doing and their attitude towards defending. They were a soft touch and now they are a real team. It’s incredible really

[Gary Neville reaches his wits’ end with Manchester United] Nothing about this United team I like at all. They’re just awful
