Neville Keen On Toffees Hot Seat

Phil Neville has thrown his hat into the ring as Everton begin the search for their new manager.

The 36-year-old former Toffees skipper called time on his playing days at Goodison Park at the end of the season.

After the sudden departure of David Moyes to Manchester United, Neville has found himself mentioned as a possible successor to the Scot.

He does see himself as a manager in the future, admits that he is happy to be linked to the Toffees hot seat, and thinks that he could pull the job off.

"It is flattering to be linked with the Everton job," said Neville according to The Times.

"There is a structure in place where the new man who comes in will not have that much to do.

"I am at the end of my career and I am looking to get into coaching and management. It's just whatever direction the club want to take.

"It would be a good job. But I know there are players who have gone into jobs and failed. I have prepared. I have prepared for the last five seasons and I have some nice decisions to make.

"I have had a lot of experience, studying coaching practices. I have been away with England Under-21s. I'm half-prepared for what I'm going into."

Meanwhile, Neville believes that Moyes has all the attributes to succeed at his former club United.

Having worked at close quarters with the Scotsman, he thinks United made the right choice in picking him ahead of other reported targets.

"People talk about Jose Mourinho being the Special One but the gaffer has something special about him in his own way,” Neville said.

"Every season at Everton, people would say the club is going to finish in the bottom half but that never happens. He sucks everything out of everyone. That shows he's got something.

"People ask me about Sir Alex and David Moyes, and hard work, determination and drive are the key things, not unbelievably special sessions, just hard work. No one works harder."
