ENGLAND women’s manager Phil Neville is expected to become David Beckham’s new Inter Miami boss. The 43-year-old became England boss in January 2018 and his contract was due to expire in July.
He was also about to take charge of the GB women’s soccer team at the Tokyo Olympics the same month.
But he will now be joining friend and former friend Beckham in his MLS franchise, which manager Diego Alonso dismissed last week after a poor first season.
An announcement by the Football Association (FA) is expected later this week with the organization now needing to appoint a different GB Team manager.
Former England defender Manchester United and Everton led the Lionesses to their first SheBelieves Cup victory in 2019 and fourth place in the World Cup later that same year, but the results since that tournament have been poor.
Neville’s contract coincided with the 2021 European Championship, which was held in England.
Yet, once that was moved to 2022 because of a coronavirus and the FA made clear they wanted someone in place for the Olympics and deferred Euros, along with the 2023 World Cup, it was decided that road separation would be more suitable.
