Phil Neville Announced as New Head Coach of England Women’s Team
Phil Neville has been appointed head coach of the England women’s team on a deal until 2021.
Neville, 41, has coached at former club Manchester United, Valencia and England Under-21s but has only managed one game – at Salford City, a team he co-owns.
The ex-England full-back takes over from Mo Marley, who had been in interim charge since Mark Sampson’s sacking.
“This squad’s on the verge of something special and I believe I can lead them to the next level,” said Neville.
Neville’s contract runs through to the end of the 2021 Uefa Women’s European Championship campaign.
