David Beckham-backed Inter Miami approach Phil Neville over manager role

Inter Miami have approached England Women’s head coach Phil Neville about the managerial role at the MLS club.

According to Sky Sports, preliminary discussions have taken place between the club part-owned by David Beckham and his former Manchester United and England team-mate Phil Neville.

Neville is set to leave his current role with England before Netherlands Women head coach Sarina Wiegman takes over in September 2021.

It was announced that Neville would be standing down after the Women’s European Championships were postponed until July 2022.

Now he could be taking over an Inter Miami side that finished 10th out of 14 teams in the MLS Eastern Conference last season, and it will be a challenge for any manager to lift the club off the ground.

Although with Beckham’s financial backing and commercial input, I would imagine Inter Miami will become a new retirement pod for ageing footballers looking to move from Europe to Stateside.

Living in Miami, managing a newest club in town. That doesn’t sound too shabby for Phil Neville.
