Inter Miami said Monday that head coach Phil Neville will return to lead the Major League Soccer team in 2023 after agreeing terms on a contract extension.
Inter said in a statement that the former England, Manchester United and Everton player was the right choice to lead the David Beckham-owned team after taking Miami to the MLS Cup playoffs this season.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Phil and build on the foundation put in place this year,” Inter sporting director Chris Henderson said.
“He has helped Inter Miami build a winning culture, and we feel our processes, collaboration and communication have begun to bear fruit.
“We are ready for the road ahead and are confident we are heading in the right direction.”
Neville, who joined Inter in 2021 after a successful spell as coach of England’s women’s team, said he hoped to remain in Miami for “a long time.”
“I think we’re in the early growth period of this club, the early building process and I feel as if we’ve made great strides over the last two years, but by no means is the journey finished,” Neville said.
“In 2022 we finished sixth in the league, we got into playoffs. But that’s not success, that’s progression. The expectation is to win.”
