Could Everton FC captain Phil Neville be ready to leave the club? Neville admits he would be prepared to drop out of the Premier League to extend his playing career.
The Blues skipper is at a professional crossroads in the summer, when his current one-year rolling deal at Everton expires with no fresh terms currently on the agenda.
Neville, 36, has previously said he will review whether he feels fit enough to carry on playing in the top flight for the Toffees when the current season has ended.
He said: “Yeah I think it’s important.
“For me I want to continue playing as long as possible so I’m not embarrassed to go down the leagues.
“I think you can still have as much fun playing in the lower leagues as you can in the Premier League.
“I think it’d be good for your experience to coach and manage down there, to go through the types of things that Edgar Davids is going through at the moment because he’s been used to the best things in life and now he’s got to really coach.
“He won’t have 20 balls, he’ll probably have five or six, he won’t have many cones, they’ll be training on a park pitch where there’s maybe dogs running across
the training pitch and this is where he’ll have to learn his trade again.”
Neville has been a very good servant to Everton, but many fans believe that his legs have now gone so this could be a good move for all parties. Discuss at www.theevertonforum.co.uk
