Soccer: Inter Miami dismisses head coach Phil Neville


Inter Miami cut ties with head coach Phil Neville on Thursday. His deputy Jason Kreis suffered the same fate.

The Herons currently rank last in the Eastern Conference with a 5-10-0 record this MLS season.

Javier Morales, who was acting as an assistant to Neville, was promoted to interim head coach.

“We are and have always been an ambitious club. Sometimes the path to growth is through tough decisions and today is one of those times,” Inter Miami owner Jorge Mas said in a statement.

“We are grateful to Phil for the dedication and tenacity he brought to Inter Miami. His positive contributions are embedded in our team culture and he represented our club with class and dignity. »

Neville joined Inter Miami in 2021, a season after joining MLS. He posted a record of 36 wins, 43 losses and 11 draws in all competitions.

Neville, 46, was a star player in the Premier League and England where he became close friends with David Beckham, one of Miami’s co-owners.

“I would like to thank the Inter Miami CF owners group for their trust and for having me participate in this project, the players and staff for their impressive commitment, dedication and hard work, and the fans for their unwavering support for the club from day one,” Neville said in a statement.

« Phil has made a real contribution to the culture of our club with his leadership qualities and knowledge as a coach, » added Beckham. Sometimes in this sport we have to make the toughest decisions and sadly we feel the time has come to make a change. »
