The Major League Soccer (MLS) side has appointed Neville to be only the second head coach in their history after sacking Diego Alonso, who guided the team to 10th in the MLS Eastern Conference in their inaugural season.

Neville left his post with the England Women's national team, whom he led to the 2019 SheBelieves Cup title, earlier this week, and has previous coaching experience with Valencia, Manchester United and England's U21 side.

"I am incredibly delighted for this opportunity to coach Inter Miami and to work with Chris and the entire ownership group," he told Inter Miami's official website.

"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."

Club co-owner Beckham expressed his delight at the appointment of his former United teammate.

"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," he said.

"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."
