Neville to follow Moyes to Man Utd from Everton

Phil Neville is in line for a coaching role at Manchester United, the Guardian has reported, as the former Everton captain prepares to follow his old Toffees boss, David Moyes, back to Old Trafford.

Neville made almost 400 appearances for United before moving to Goodison Park in the summer of 2005, making his Everton debut in a Champions League qualifier against Villarreal. Along with Steve Round, Chris Woods and Robbie Cooke, Neville is one of a number of former Everton figures Moyes is said to be keen to install at his new employers.

Rene Meulensteen, first-team coach under Moyes’ predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, is understood to have left the club after turning down a new role under the incoming manager, with Neville in line to assume the Dutchman’s duties.

Meulensteen is joined in seeking pastures new by Ferguson’s assistant, Mike Phelan, with Round taking the role under Moyes, goalkeeping coach Eric Steele – who will be replaced for former England international Woods – and Martin Ferguson, chief scout and brother of the retiring Ferguson. Cooke, chief scout under Moyes at Everton, will be his replacement. Neville’s Everton contract expired at the end of the season.
