It was in the 2009 Club World Cup final when he scored a victor to give Barcelona the trophy.
Tuesday's defeat was the fifth in seven matches for Man Utd after a hot start under Solskjaer, and Neville believes the club's performances in recent weeks are a more realistic indicator of their current level.
