Everton defender Phil Neville has said that his brother and former Manchester United defender Gary Neville will be a great coach at the Euro 2012 for England. It was recently announced that the former Manchester United defender, who is currently working as a pundit for Sky Sports, will be travelling along with the England squad to the Euro 2012 as one of the coaches.
He is expected to aid England in the defensive aspect. England have been lacking a major right back who is capable of challenging with the best in the world since the retirement of Gary Neville. Phil Neville has said that there will certainly be no clash of qualities because Gary Neville is one of the honest men one can ever find.
Phil Neville has said that Gary Neville is not the type of person to say a different thing compared to what is on his mind. It is this honest take that will come to his rescue at the Euro 2012 according to his brother. Phil Neville also said that he never planned to travel with the England squad for the Euro 2012 because he is only concerned about playing at the moment. However, he has said that he is taking his coaching badges now.
“I know what Gary will do for the squad. It came as a bolt out of the blue. He has had such a successful time with Sky and I think he was looking to put his feet up this summer. The first thing I thought was ’what a clever move by Roy Hodgson’. From a PR exercise, he has not gone for a yes man, he has gone for someone who will challenge him and the team. I think it was a masterstroke. There is a new era coming in now. I am really positive and quite excited,” Neville said.
