HomeBiography & ImagesPhil Neville

Phil Neville – January 21, 1977 – is a pundit and co-commentator of BBC’s World Cup 2014 coverage in Brazil.

He is a football coach and former player who works as a coach for Manchester United, with whom he began his playing career. After 10 years as a professional with Manchester United, during which time he won six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League, he joined Everton in 2005, where he spent the final eight years of his playing career.

Neville also played for England between 1996 and 2007. He could play in defence or midfield; due to this versatility, he operated in a number of different positions throughout his career, but was most often used as a full-back.

After earning his UEFA B Coaching Licence, Neville began his coaching career in 2012, filling in for Stuart Pearce with the England under-21s. When David Moyes, Neville’s manager at Everton, left to join Manchester United as Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement in May 2013, Neville was considered for the Everton job, but he ultimately followed Moyes to Manchester United as the club’s first-team coach. Moyes was sacked in April 2014, but Neville retained his position under interim manager Ryan Giggs.

Neville is the younger brother of fellow former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, and the twin brother of England netball international Tracey Neville.
