Current assistant manager of the English national team, Gary Neville, is set to return to his old job when the Euro 2016 ends.
There are reports in the English camp that the former Manchester United star defender will accept Sky’s open-ended invitation to come back after the team’s involvement in Euro 2016 is over.
Neville left the football station last season despite having the reputation as the game’s best analyst to try his hand at management with Valencia. In Spain, he had a terrible stay as he could only lead the team to only 10 victories out of 28 games in a four-month spell before his sacking.
There were lots of rumours but he has kept it aside, focusing on the tournament. He faced his part-time role with England since then along with his varied business interests that include co-ownership of non-League Salford and Hotel Football next door to Old Trafford. But the reports now reveal that the revered Pundit will take back his old job with Sky, and that the station would welcome him with open hands. He is set to join up with Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football, on which their dissection of the weekend’s Premier League games took football punditry to new heights.
However, with Ed Chamberlin going to ITV, Neville would be working with a new presenter in Dave Jones.
After the disappointing game with Slovakia, the coach gave the team some downtime. Neville was pictured cycling around the city. Other players were pictured relaxing during the two day short break. England will face Iceland in the next round of games, according to the pairings from UEFA. Iceland finished in fifth place in group F, just behind group leaders on same five points, Hungary.
