The 36-year-old former Blues skipper has not ruled out continuing his playing career, although he has also been linked with a role as part of the coaching setup at Manchester United under former Toffees boss David Moyes.

The former United player, who has not played since early March because of a knee problem, could also be tempted to follow his brother Gary into media work.

"I have not made a decision yet - I have not officially retired yet," Neville told the official Everton website.

"Over the next couple of weeks that is the main decision I have to make; whether my body is up to the physical demands of Premier League football. I will sit down with my wife and family and come to that decision.

"I have thought about it but I will take a couple of weeks and have a holiday, then make the decision.

"I am looking forward to the next challenge in my career. It has been a tough season but one of the most enjoyable.

"I am in a position many people would love to be in. I am coming to the end of my football career and I have got many options.

"I have been preparing for this moment for a number of years. I will take the next couple of weeks to wind down and mentally rest after a hectic couple of weeks. Then I will make my decision and I back myself to make the right decision."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
