England: Phil Neville leaves Lionesses and joins Inter Miami


Phil Neville has left his role as manager of England’s women and been appointed in charge of David Beckham’s Major League Soccer side Inter Miami. The 43-year-old was appointed as England boss in January 2018 and his contract was set to end in July.

The Football Association says it will “shortly confirm” an interim head coach until Sarina Wiegman’s arrival. Netherlands manager Wiegman will take on the role after the delayed Tokyo Olympics in August.

Former Manchester United and Everton defender Neville was the leading contender to manage Great Britain at the Games, but his move to the United States has left the FA needing another option.

“This is a very young club with a lot of promise and upside, and I am committed to challenging myself, my players and everyone around me to grow and build a competitive soccer culture we can all be proud of,” Neville said of his American move.

Beckham said of his former Manchester United team-mate: “I have known Phil since we were both teenagers at the academy.
