Neville eyes extended career
Everton skipper Phil Neville says he has no intention of retiring and is targeting another three years at the highest level.
Neville signed his first professional contract with Manchester United 19 years ago and remained at Old Trafford until 2005. His move to Merseyside cost Everton £3.5million and he has become an integral part of David Moyes' squad. Neville will lead Everton into another Premier League season in 2012-2013 and the notoriously slow starters will be out to buck that trend as they look to break back into the top six. The 35-year-old says he has not considered hanging up his boots and believes he still has plenty to offer the club. "I want to play football for as long as I possibly can - two, three more years hopefully at the top level. The way that science is improving now players can play for as long as they possibly can. I think it is your mind which goes before your body and once your mind goes you can't make that back up," Neville told the club's official website. "I'm quite a positive person. People say only look for this season but I am thinking, 'Let's look for another three years'. But I have to remain fit, strong and keep playing well to keep my position in the team." Punters looking to use their free bet might be tempted to back an Everton outfit desperate to kick on next season.
