On this day in 2011, Gary Neville announced his retirement from football and ended a decorated career that saw him win a total of 20 trophies.
Neville then moved into punditry and co-commentary with Sky Sports and has become one of the very best in the business.
Passionate and insightful, the former Manchester United skipper also has a tendency to make weird noises while in the booth alongside Martin Tyler.
We'll never know what Neville the co-commentator would have made of Neville the player but someone has decided to combine the two in one brilliant video.
YouTuber 'Football24Jack' spliced together clips of Neville's career but with his comments over it and it's genuinely incredible.
There's a goal-gasm for when the ex England right-back scored one of his seven career goals and the phrase, "Keep your head, keep your discipline" for when he was sent off against Everton.
When denied by David James at Old Trafford, Neville describes himself as "someone who is not the most comfortable of finishers" but yet he's also "one of the best crossers you'll ever see" in another clip.
"More than a winger than a right-back never mind a centre-back" is the commentary to support another Neville strike, while the Salford City owner comments, "I don't know why he's done that" over footage of him diving in the box against Manchester City.
The sentence, "It's amazing, it's brilliant. And you do feel blessed to be in the stadium to watch him,'" was absolutely not a remark Neville made about himself but you'll never know that through the magic of editing.
Neville frequently plays down his footballing abilities when discussing his career and says he knew he had to hang up the boots after a "horror show" in a 2-1 win at West Brom in 2011.
"You think about the game at West Brom, it was a horror show performance from me for 62 minutes," Neville stated on Sky Sports.
"How I didn’t get sent off, how I didn’t cost us more goals [I don't know].
"The same happened at Stoke in the game before that in November and the same at Everton where we were 3-1 up and it finished 3-3 and the two goals came down my side.
“So, for me I had no choice, I was finished, I was done."
