Phil Neville on brink of becoming Inter Miami boss in next 48 hours and link up with Man Utd pal David Beckham in MLS

PHIL NEVILLE is set to be confirmed as Inter Miami boss within the next 48 hours.

The former Manchester United midfielder will bring to an end almost three years in charge of England's women's team.

In that time he has led the Lionesses to glory in the SheBelieves Cup and the World Cup semi-finals.

He will take control of old pal David Beckham's MLS side who parted company with Uruguayan coach Diego Alonso last week.

Nev, 43, has been desperate to break into the men's game and cannot wait to get cracking in South Florida.

A source told SunSport: "Phil wants to get started.

"This is a great opportunity for him. He's buzzing."

Neville, who has ditched plans to help lead Team GB at this summer's Olympics, replaces Alonso following a disappointing first season.

Miami won just seven matches and although they sneaked into the play-offs, fellow newcomers Nashville thumped them 3-0 to compound a miserable campaign beset with behind-the-scenes problems.

Neville will have the likes of former Juventus stars Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi at his disposal when he takes over.


Former England skipper Becks flew into Florida at the weekend ahead of confirming Neville's appointment.

MLS chiefs hope the new season will start in March.
