Inter Miami announced the departure of coach Diego Alonso, potentially paving the way for outgoing female England boss Phil Neville, who is said to have held preliminary talks over the position with the Major League Soccer club, and an obstacle has now been removed after the club announced by mutual consent that they had parted ways with Alonso.
The club finished 10th in the Eastern Conference in its first MLS season under the former Uruguayan striker and was eliminated in the MLS Cup play-in round. # InterMiamiCF and Manager Diego Alonso decided to part ways. Club Statement https://t. Co/TmxXJXvTyP- Inter Miami CF (@InterMiamiCF) January 7, 2021 “On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Diego for his hard work and dedication during our inaugural season and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said Jorge Mas., the managing owner of the club. It was a difficult year and a very tough decision for everyone, but we believe it is the club’s right move. The club is owned by David Beckham, Neville’s former Manchester United and England teammate, who also co-owns Salford’s Sky Bet League Two club. When his contract expires in July, Neville will step down as Lionesses coach, and Sarina Wiegman will replace him in September. I would like to thank the employees for their work and friendship, the players for their commitment on the field and especially the fans for their continuous support throughout the year. Dame Sue Campbell, the Football Association’s director of women’s soccer, announced that if he does not take the vacant job at Inter Miami, Neville will lead Team GB in Japan. “We have made a decision that Phil Phil will lead Team GB in Japan.” If Phil leaves, he’ll be the coach of Team GB. When he leaves, we obviously have to think and work on something. Where we are, that is.’
