The outgoing England head coach says it remains his ambition to take charge of Team GB at next summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo
Phil Neville has reiterated his desire to take Team GB to the rescheduled Olympic Games next summer, despite him being set to leave his post as England head coach in July of next year.
It was announced in April that Neville would step down as the Lionesses’ boss at the end of his contract, with him to be replaced by current Netherlands boss Sarina Wiegman, who will take over after taking her home nation to those Games.
The former Manchester United defender was meant to guide Team GB at the Olympics in Tokyo in the summer of 2020, but the Games were pushed back 12 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, Neville is hopeful that, despite being set to leave his job with England, he can still have the opportunity.
