Manchester United legend is being approached by Inter Miami for a managerial role.
Inter Miami is one of the most ambitious teams in the Major League Soccer franchise but they are not performing up to their level. The club is co-owned by England legend, David Beckham who wants it to be the best club in America, but they will not get there by playing subpar football. The club started investing in top-level players such as Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi but could not get much out of them. They are now trying to bring in one of the biggest names in English football as their new coach after sacking Diego Alonso.
The South Florida team ended up 10th on the league table which is less than satisfactory after spending so much money. The team needs more than just big-name players however, they need a good footballing philosophy and clear direction. This is where David Beckham can help a lot. Due to his immensely successful career in professional football, he has a lot of contacts and many friends. He has contacted former English defender, Phil Neville, to become the head coach of his team next season.
This is a really interesting offer for the ex-Manchester United player as he was the manager of the England Women’s team but decided to step down after the Women’s Euros were postponed till July 2022. Netherlands’ Women’s head coach is appointed to take up Neville’s role once she is done with the rearranged Tokyo Olympics. Thus, this leaves Beckham’s ex-teammate without a managerial job and an offer from Miami seems perfect.
Inter Miami is a club that has a lot of dreams and wants to challenge for the top spot in American continents. They have even been linked with Lionel Messi and Olivier Giroud. Players are seeing the MLS as more than just a retirement center and it is finally building a good reputation. Thus taking a job with one of the rising teams in the league seems like a dream job for Neville. He has agreed to manage the Women’s team till the Olympics but should be eager to take up the Miami job after the tournament.
