After 10th defeat in the season, Inter Miami fires Coach Phill Neville following 1-0 loss to New York Red Bull

Inter Miami CF, the Major League Soccer (MLS) team co-owned by David Beckham, has made the decision to part ways with head coach Phil Neville. The move comes as a result of the team’s poor performance, with Inter Miami currently sitting at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Following a recent 1-0 defeat to the New York Red Bulls, marking their fourth consecutive loss, the club felt a change was necessary to turn their fortunes around.

Neville, who was appointed in January 2021, had a mixed tenure with Inter Miami. In his first season, the team struggled due to financial penalties from violations of MLS roster rules. Despite signing a new contract after an improved second season, the recent string of poor results led to his dismissal.


Inter Miami’s struggles have been evident throughout the season, as the have endured a series of disappointing results. With just 15 points from 15 games, the team finds itself in a dire position within the Eastern Conference Standings. These consistent defeats have prompted the club to take decisive action to address the situation.

The club’s recent transfers also failed to produce the desired impact. Despite adding players like Dixon Arroyo, Kamal Miller, and Josef Martinez, Inter Miami struggled to find their rhythm and lacked necessary cohesion on the field.


With Phil Neville’s departure, Inter Miami has named Javier Morales, one of the assistant coaches, as the interim head coach. The future of the team remains uncertain, as they search for a long-term replacement to guide the club back to success. The decision to part ways with Neville was a difficult one for the club’s ownership, as he brought leadership qualities and a deep understanding of the game. However, in the competitive world of professional sports, tough decisions sometimes need to be made in order to achieve growth and success. With a new coach at the helm, Inter Miami will have to regroup, strengthen their squad, and rediscover their winning formula to climb up the Eastern Conference standings and compete for a playoff spot.


"“I would like to thank the Inter Miami CF ownership group for their trust and making me a part of this project; the players and staff for their impressive commitment, dedication and hard work; and the fans for their unwavering support for the Club since day one. I’m grateful to have played a part in the growth of this Club and wish Inter Miami CF all the best in the future,” said Neville."

"“When we appointed Phil we knew he would give Inter Miami his all and I have watched him work incredibly hard and with real commitment towards the ambitions we set out for the club. He and his family embraced Miami and he has devoted himself to the drive to bring success to the city and to our fans,” said Co-Owner David Beckham."
