The FA have confirmed that Phil Neville has stepped down as head coach of England Women with immediate effect.

Neville – who was appointed in January 2018 – originally announced last April that he would be leaving this summer.

However, the 43-year-old has reportedly been approached by MLS side Inter Miami and is now expected to be unveiled as their new manager.

“It has been an honour to manage England and I have enjoyed three of the best years of my career with The FA and the Lionesses,” Neville said in an official statement.

“The players who wear the England shirt are some of the most talented and dedicated athletes I have ever had the privilege to work with.

“I wish England Women every success in the future and look forward to following their journey in the years to come.”

The FA must now find a head coach for the Team GB women’s side, six months out from the Olympics in Tokyo.
