Manchester United legend Phil Neville has made a surprising claim about his most memorable moment in his football career.

The former defender made 263 appearances in the course of his 11-year-long life at Old Trafford.

Although Neville played alongside some of the best players in the football history, but he shares the most iconic moment of his career with former Manchester United goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel.

Neville played five years alongside Peter Schmeichel. And during the Q&A in an Adidas event, Neville was asked about his favourite Red Devils episode.

“Obviously you can’t look far past the treble (in 1999),” Neville said.

“But mine’s actually an individual moment when Peter Schmeichel saved that penalty in the FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal, because I’d just given that.”

On his debut appearance:

Even though Neville’s career was fancied with six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League, but every player starts from zero.

Later in the event, Neville joked about his debut appearance.

“I thought I was just turning up to help the kit man to be honest with you,” he joked

“But even once you’re a regular in the first team, you don’t really realise it.

“You were always trying to better yourself and improve because this club was always buying good players.

“In my position we had two or three really good, international quality players, and every summer the boss would look to bring more players in, which kept us all on our toes.”
