Neville named as new England Women’s coach but for how long?

Former Man Utd, Everton and England international, Phil Neville has been confirmed as the new England women’s coach, after Mark Sampson’s sacking in September.

“I’m honoured to be given the chance to lead England,” said the 41-year-old. “This squad’s on the verge of something special and I believe I can lead them to the next level.

“There’s no greater honour than representing your country and it will be a privilege to do it again. I can’t wait to get down to work with an elite group of players at the top of their game.”

However, it wasn’t long before controversial tweets posted by Neville under his username @fizzer18 in 2012 were uncovered that cast a shadow on his appointment.

Within hours Neville had deleted his Twitter account, but is it too late…?
