"We have beds at the training ground and I go home sometimes and say to my wife, 'do you know something, I didn't want to leave work today?'" Neville told The Guardian.
"It's not a slight on my wife. It's just a great position to be in when you love your job so much. This training ground, you don't want to go home. It feels like it is your home."
Neville, who spent eight years at Everton, retired from playing at the end of last season.
