Gary Neville's fitness woes Make Him Frustrated...

In a footballing sense, Gary Neville has never known anything but Manchester United and England. The 33-year-old has racked up a wealth of experience and standing in the game whilst turning out for both.

However, the right-back suffered an ankle injury in March 2007 and has plodded along the comeback trail for almost two years. Now, the next generation is starting to creep through, with full-back Rafael da Silva in particular looking as though he could replace both Neville and fellow crock Wes Brown in the long-term.

Neville is said to be a professional figure off the field - becoming involved in various committees and initiatives in an ambassadorial capacity in recent years, so he is expected to have a future in the game when he hangs up his boots.

Still, that doesn't mean he isn't feeling low at present as he skulks around on the fringes of the Red Devils' first-team.

He told the club's official website: "To be honest, I've not been able to stay fit enough, long enough, or produce consistently good enough performances to stay in the team.

"You've got to be realistic and honest with yourself. The first thing you've got to do is stay fit. If you do that over a long period of time, you get the opportunity to get your level of performance to something that is acceptable for this club."

Neville is expected to feature as United wrap up their Champions League Group E campaign in midweek against Aalborg.
