Manchester United defender Wes Brown is resigned to the fact that Gary Neville will take his place in the starting XI.



Brown has been ever-present for Sir Alex Ferguson's side this season, but United's captain is closing in on a comeback to the first-team.


Neville has been on the sidelines for nearly a month after injuring his ankle against Bolton back in March.


A thigh injury curtailed the England international's first comeback, but the Red Devils stalwart is confident of featuring within the next two weeks.



Team player


Brown explained that while he has thoroughly enjoyed his consistent run in the side, he accepts that Neville will take his place once he is fit.


"It has been great to play. It is always good to get a run in the side so early in the season," he said.


"But Gary is getting close to his comeback now so when he does return I will make sure I am ready when needed.


"Gary is captain of the club, so when he is fit he will definitely be back in the side."

browns not a full back but he sure as hell dont give much to the opposition which is dam good, really wished SAF would have given one of the younger right backs a shot, simpson or bardsley, although we cant see how well they train, imo it would have meant more balance with two better adapted attacking full backs

Yeah i know mate, but what i mean is he is happy to be used when the manager needs him, and doesn't go on tv and say stuff like ''i don't know why the manager doesn't use me i'm fit'' (Shevchenko by the way)! He is a true red!;)

although brown can a do a job in defence it's going forward where we really miss gary neville, his engine up and down the wing and ability to cross a ball is second to none. he also has a great understanding with giggs and ronaldo (who ever might be on the right wing) as he did with beckham

Brown has been very consistent this season, I personally thought he was M.O.T.M against Chelsea, Nev faces a big fight getting back into the team, The competition for places is good for the team!!

i think Wes has been one of our most consistent players this season. Im glad for him, he deserves his chance!
He deffo' is! Along with VDS, Rio, Vida & Evra, the back 5 forms the best defensive back-line in the whole world of Europe this season. Well, 15 goals conceded in the Premiership...so what do you actually think? ;)

i think brown has been brilliant. he deserves that right back spot. further, with all the injuries he had, can gary neville be as mobile as he was? brown seems to be made for united system. he's very mobile. just lacking a little pace, but otherwise, he is solid.
