Phil Neville will remain part of Manchester United's backroom team for the forseeable future despite the appointment of Louis van Gaal, IBTimes UK understands.

The 37 year old was part of David Moyes' coaching staff last season after joining from Everton and was expected to follow the Scot out of Old Trafford upon the confirmation of Van Gaal as United's new manager.

Ryan Giggs has been installed as assistant manager, with Marcel Bout and goalkeeping coach Frans Hoek confirmed to join Van Gaal from the Netherlands national team after the World Cup finals in Brazil.

Neville retained his coaching position in the wake of Moyes' sacking in April, working alongside interim manager Giggs and youth team coaches Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt as the much-famed Class of '92 were reunited.

Moyes' other assistants Steve Round, Jimmy Lumsden and Chris Woods have all since left the club after the ex-Everton manager was dismissed after 10 months at the Theatre of Dreams.

And despite the appointment of three members of Van Gaal's support team ahead of the start of his three-year deal at United, which begins after the World Cup finals, Neville remains at the club and could yet have a long-term future.

During 10 years as a professional at United, Neville made over 300 appearances and won 11 major honors before becoming a stalwart at Goodison Park for Everton under Moyes.

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Wednesday, Neville claimed his United future remains unresolved.

"It is business as usual as far as I am concerned," Neville told Sky Sports News. "I was first-team coach last year. I am not sure what my role will be next year but over the next couple of weeks I will find out about my role and hopefully I will be involved at Man Utd.

"We [Neville, Butt and Scholes] do love Man Utd but that doesn't give us a divine right to be in and around the club."
