Phil Neville is the man to lead Inter Miami into only their second-ever season in MLS this year. David Beckham has turned to his former Manchester United teammate to replace Diego Alonso and will be hoping his winter gamble pays off in 2021.

He faces a tough task in adapting to a new culture and league but it will be a challenge he will be relishing. Neville, 44, will be looking to use what he’s learned from managing England Women as he embarks on a new chapter of his career in America.

The big question is, will he use his contacts in England to sign players for Miami? Neville spent his playing days at Manchester United and Everton and could look at bringing some players over the pond with him as he seeks to put his own stamp on his newly inherited squad.

He has crossed paths with plenty of players during his time at Old Trafford as both a player and a first-team coach. Whilst his time at Everton will have also given him plenty of possible contacts he could call upon as he turns his head to recruitment.

Neville was teammates with the likes of Steven Naismith, Bryan Oviedo, Kevin Mirallas, Apostolos Vellios, Victor Anichebe, and Nikica Jelavic at Everton, all of who appear realistic options he could pursue over the next couple of months.

Manchester United is another avenue for Miami to explore with their Neville/Beckham. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has plenty of young players in their ranks who would benefit from getting some first-team football elsewhere.

However, it could all depend on whether the Red Devils see the MLS as somewhere their youngster will develop and be guaranteed game time. It will be interesting to see who Neville signs for his new side in the future and whether he opts to take an unconventional MLS approach and go for players from England, or sticks to the norm.
