The England women’s national team validated Phil Neville will end his period as head coach at the end of his contract in July 2021.
Neville’s contract was initially structured to see the manager through the Tokyo Olympics, providing the federation a full year to look for a newcoach The post ponement of the Olympics will now complicate this treatment, as the rescheduled Games are anticipated to start in mid-July– simply a month after Neville’s contract ends.
The English federation will now be required to finish a coaching shift in a matter of weeks prior to the start of the competition.
“Once football returns after this difficult period, Phil will continue his work with the Lionesses on the further development of his squad,” director of women’s football Sue Campbell stated in a declaration. “I will support him fully with that important task while moving forward with the crucial succession planning process.”
The England women’s national team will look for redemption next summer in Tokyo after leaving the 2019 FIFA World Cup at the hands of the United States.
A former star for Manchester United and the England men’s national team, Neville has actually dealt with criticism throughout his period as head coach, especially after he called the World Cup bronze medal match a “nonsense game.” He called his team’s form “unacceptable” in November 2019 after a 2-1 loss to Germany in front of a record- breaking home crowd of 77,768 fans at Wembley Arena.
“We’re thinking we’re one of the best teams in the world, but we’re not,” Neville stated after the loss.
Under Neville, the team has posted a record of 19-11 -5 given that he was selected to the role in2018 The Lionesses have actually dropped 7 losses in their last 11 games under Neville, consisting of a 1-0 loss to Spain that resulted in a third-place finish at the SheBelieves Cup this spring.
Nevertheless, England still stays the No. 6 team in the FIFA international rankings.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to work with the team as soon as possible,” Neville stated in a declaration Friday. “We have a fantastic squad of players and there is plenty to work on as we look to progress as a team going into 2021.”
