Phil Neville Joins Canada National team’s Coaching Staff

In a significant development for Canada’s national team, former Manchester United defender Phil Neville has agreed to join the coaching staff.

The 46-year-old coach was recently dismissed from his position as head coach at Inter Miami on June 1, as the team languished at the bottom of the MLS standings.

Joining Neville is ex-Coventry defender Richard Shaw, 54, who will also become part of the coaching team.

Head coach John Herdman expressed his excitement about the new additions, highlighting the wealth of winning experience that Neville and Shaw bring to the table.

Canada’s first match in the tournament is against Panama on June 15 at Allegiant Stadium.

A victory in this game would pave the way for a final showdown against the winners of the match between the United States and Mexico. For Canada, securing the championship would mark their first trophy since the year 2000.

Alongside Shaw, who previously coached at Coventry and Millwall, Neville will join the Canada staff for the upcoming Concacaf Nations League finals taking place in Las Vegas.

Phil Neville’s managerial Career

Neville’s coaching journey began after his playing career concluded with Everton in 2013.

He served as an assistant coach at Manchester United and Valencia before taking on the role of head coach for the England Women’s national team.

Under his guidance, the team clinched victory at the SheBelieves Cup in 2019 and secured a fourth-place finish in the 2019 World Cup.

Neville’s tenure at Inter Miami began in 2021, but the recent run of 10 defeats in 13 games led to his departure earlier this month. However, he now has the opportunity to make a fresh start with Canada’s national team.
