thumbnail Hello,

After seeing his brother Gary take up a post as a first-team coach with the England senior team, the 35-year-old has underlined his desire to stay in football beyond playing

Everton captain Phil Neville has expressed his desire to follow brother Gary into coaching once his playing days are over.

The 35-year-old, whose contract at Goodison Park expires at the end of the season, has already gained experience with Stuart Pearce's Under-21 squad over the summer.

And, after seeing his sibling appointed as a first-team coach in Roy Hodgson's senior set-up, the former Manchester United man has affirmed his commitment to coaching.

"The bottom line is, I want to be a coach. I want to be a manager," Neville told the Daily Telegraph.

"That's my love. I spent three days with the England Under 21s over the summer and it was the best three days I've had in football. It inspired me.

"It made my mind up: I want to become a manager, definitely.

"I'm not going to make the mistake of thinking I can become a manager without having done everything possible beforehand to learn, study and get my badges."
