Former Manchester United captain and right back Gary Neville has given a statement on his inclusion to a task force evaluating the regeneration of Old Trafford.

Neville, who owns a nearby hotel, had been contacted by the club earlier for his two cents on how to go about the regeneration of the iconic stadium and the surrounding area.

There had been rumours and speculations of new management INEOS looking at possible options for the Theatre of Dreams in terms of regeneration or building a new stadium altogether.

It is pleasant to see this will actually materialize as Neville announced in his statement below;

“I’m delighted to be part of a task force looking at the regeneration of Old Trafford and the surrounding area. I’ve spoken many times about the importance of creating a special place around Old Trafford.

“Obviously I’m passionate about Manchester United winning on the pitch, but I feel it’s equally important for Manchester United to win off the pitch aswell.

“Manchester United should have a world-class stadium befitting of its status as the world’s greatest club and if this is achieved it will be a landmark project for the whole of Greater Manchester helping to create growth and opportunity.

“Over the last few years we’ve seen the regeneration of other stadiums both in this country and internationally that have set the standard and it’s an honour to be asked to play a small part in helping the club to deliver a best-in-class stadium and regeneration of the surrounding area and I can’t wait to get started.” Neville announced on social media.
