Reporting Sports in a refreshing style

Beckham’s Inter Miami approach Neville about becoming MLS side’s manager

Inter Miami owner, David Beckham, has approached former Manchester United team-mate Phil Neville about becoming the team’s new manager.

The England Lionesses boss, 43, revealed he would step down as national boss in July after this summer’s Euros.

Dutch legend Sarina Wiegman will take over as Lionesses boss from the summer.

And Beckham is keen to get Neville straight back into action by making him new boss of Inter Miami, according to Sky Sports.

The report claims ‘preliminary discussions’ between the MLS side and Neville have taken place.

Current boss Diego Alonso has been widely tipped to leave the club after his sole season in charge.

Inter Miami finished tenth in the 14-team Eastern Conference last season, snatching the final playoffs play-in spot.

Following the season’s return from the enforced coronavirus break, the club finished bottom of their ‘MLS is back’ group, thus ending their season.

All in all, Inter Miami won just seven of their 23 matches, losing 13 times, putting Alonso’s future in jeopardy.

Meanwhile, Neville led England to the 2019 World Cup semi-finals and helped his side win the SheBelieves Cup.

Elsewhere, Inter Miami could be forced to change their name after losing a legal battle with Italian giants Inter Milan.

Inter Milan are suing the American league for trademark infringement.

The Italian side have claimed the term ‘Inter’ is synonymous with just them.

In 2014, the club filed a trademark application with the United States Patent Trademark Office.

According to AS, the Serie A side won the first round of the battle in court on Monday.

Inter Miami are expected to make a final appeal to the USPTO to overturn the decision.

But defeat would see Beckham’s club forced into a humiliating change of identity.

Re-branding the entire club would cost Beckham and Co millions of dollars.
