Neville, 43,  left his role as England Women head coach before the announcement, having previously announced he would leave in the summer before Sarina Wiegman takes over.


Neville said: ‘I am incredibly delighted for this opportunity to coach Inter Miami and to work with Chris and the entire ownership group.

‘This is a very young club with a lot of promise and upside, and I am committed to challenging myself, my players and everyone around me to grow and build a competitive soccer culture we can all be proud of.’

‘This fantastic soccer-loving market deserves consistent performances and a winning mentality, and I look forward to getting to work.’


Beckham said: ‘I have known Phil since we were both teenagers at the Manchester United Academy.


‘We share a footballing DNA having been trained by some of the best leaders in the game, and it’s those values that I have always wanted running through our club.


‘Phil has deep experience in football, as a player and as a coach at both club and international level, and over his career he has worked with many of the finest managers and players in the game.

‘I know his qualities as a person, his decency, loyalty and honesty – and his incredible energy and work ethic. Anyone who has played or worked with Phil knows he is a natural leader, and I believe now is the right time for him to join.’
