Gary Neville wore his heart on his sleeve more than most Manchester United players and fans loved him for it.
When it came to Liverpool and Manchester City games, the ex-United captain always led by example. He was there to battle and wasn’t going to hold back. It’s what you want your captain to play like, especially when it comes to derbies.
