Goodison Park has lost its fizz for Phil Neville, who has announced his decision to quit Everton at the end of the season.
36-year-old defender Neville is skipper of the Toffees, where he has played for eight seasons since leaving Manchester United.
He says that he will continue his playing career elsewhere, while he is also slated to work as part of Stuart Pearce's England Under-21s backroom staff this summer at the European Championship in Israel.
"It's been an honour to play for and captain Everton Football Club," ‘Fizzer’ said, announcing his intentions.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time on Merseyside and will leave with immense pride. I would like to thank the manager, chairman, all of the staff and the players at Everton for their continued support during my time at the club.
"I'd also like to pay a special thanks to the fans, who have been amazing over the past eight years and Everton will always have a place in my heart. I want to continue to play at the top level as long as I physically can, and will be weighing up my options before making a decision on my next move. I'll now be doing everything I can to help Everton finish as high up the league table as possible."
