The former Manchester United player will take the reins at a club establishing itself on the field, and grappling with challenges off it
On Monday morning, Inter Miami announced that Phil Neville would step down from his role as manager of the England women’s team to take the helm at the MLS club. The club, co-owned by Neville’s former teammate David Beckham, played their first season in MLS amid the tumultuous backdrop of 2020, and will look to Neville to turn the team into a force to be reckoned with in the seemingly ever-expanding league.
In his first statement as Miami manager, Neville described Inter as a “very young club with a lot of promise and upside”. But if he expects his new job to be all beach days and sunshine, he is in for a shock.
