Inter Miami have approached Phil Neville to be their head coach

Inter Miami have approached Phil Neville to become their new head coach. The MLS side are looking to poach him from his role as England Women’s manager, according to a report by Sky Sports. He knows Miami’s joint-owner David Beckham from their time as players at Manchester United.

Diego Alonso is still technically Inter Miami’s boss which makes this situation intriguing. He led them into their first season last year which turned out to an underwhelming one, hence why the Herons have now moved for someone new.

Neville, who is 43 years old, spent his playing career in the Premier League. He rose up through the youth ranks at Manchester United, alongside Beckham, before playing 386 games for their first-team. The ex-versatile full-back then moved to Everton in 2005 and went on to play 303 games for the Toffees before hanging up his boots.

His first taste of coaching came as caretaker manager of Salford City five years ago before a spell as assistant manager of Valencia. He was then chosen to be head coach of the England Women’s team in 2018 and has held that job ever since. Neville has since managed in the World Cup but his role has slightly changed now as he is also Team GB’s boss.

They are gearing up for the Olympics which are scheduled for next year in Tokyo. However, he could now jump ship and join Miami. The Herons are an exciting proposition for him and a chance to get a fresh start somewhere else. Their pursuit of him suggests Alonso’s time there is coming to an end and they look likely to have a new man in charge for their second-ever season.
