According to Sky Sports MLS team Inter Miami have approached England Women’s national team manager Phillip Neville to become their next head coach.
Inter Miami are part-owned by Neville’s former Manchester United and England team-mate David Beckham, who played in the MLS from 2007 – 2012 with Los Angeles side LA Galaxy and it’s Beckham’s relationship with Neville which is expected to be the deciding factor in the American soccer franchise landing their man.
Neville was appointed manager of the England women’s national team in 2018 and was contracted to remain head coach until the end of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2021 until he stepped down due to the tournament being postponed until July 2022.
Inter Miami have only played one season in the MLS in which they finished 10th in the 2020 season after signing an entirely new squad plus backroom staff which is led my head coach Diego Alonso.
Alonso’s new boys won just seven of their opening 23 matches, losing 13 times, putting the Uruguayan’s future as manager in doubt as he hasn’t been sacked yet but the club are actively searching for a replacement.
