Beckham wants to ensure Inter Miami excel – Neville backed over MLS job
Manchester United and England legend Gary Neville believes his brother Phil deserves the Inter Miami job.
“All I will say is that I know my brother, and I know David Beckham to be fair, and he wouldn’t give his mate a job if he thought he couldn’t do it,” said Neville.
“The time, money, and everything he has put into that club over the past few years, he wants to make sure it’s a success.
“I know how much Phil thinks about football. Every minute of every day. He is on the pitch, he is writing the sessions down, every day for the last six of seven years, and he’s non-stop. He adores it, he loves it, and he’s passionate.
“I don’t wake up in the morning and think about 4-4-2 or 4-3-3, I don’t. I couldn’t think of anything worse. But Phil does. He’s had three or four jobs now, he’s obviously had the England women’s job for the last few years, and I want him to do really well, as I know how much he works.
“And if you work hard in life, you’ll always have a chance. He thinks every single minute about his coaching, and what his team is going to do, asking questions all the time.”
Inter Miami finished 10th out of 14 in the MLS Eastern Conference in their first campaign as a franchise. They currently have former Juventus duo Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi amongst their ranks.
The club are currently in a legal dispute with Italian side Internazionale over the prefix ‘Inter’.
