Hodgson: Neville can be England manager

Roy Hodgson believes Gary Neville will one day manage England, according to ESPN.

The former Manchester United defender is among Hodgson’s backroom team and it has been suggested Neville could replace Hodgson after England’s poor World Cup. The Three Lions play their last game of the tournament today, having lost to Italy and Uruguay and been eliminated at the group stage.

Despite England’s early exit, Hodgson has been told his job is safe, and believes Neville could one day step into the manager’s role. “Of course he can,” Hodgson said. “But it would be wrong to start putting him under pressure to suggest he needs to get down to some work in a club side because the England manager's job is there waiting for him.

“When the job comes up again, who knows what candidates there will be? The number of jobs available vis-a-vis the amount of time people spend in those jobs gets less and less, so I certainly wouldn't advise him necessarily to jump at the first opportunity to do coaching or management,” he continued.

“I don't have any doubt in my mind that he will become a top-class football coach and top-class manager.”

His England role is the only coaching experience Neville has to his name, having taken a job as a television pundit with Sky Sports upon his retirement. As a player, Neville won 85 England caps and 20 major trophies with United, playing more than 600 times for the Red Devils.
