Everton boss David Moyes says skipper Phil Neville isn't ready to step into coaching just yet.

Earlier this year, Neville helped out with England's Under-21 side ahead of a Euro 2013 qualifying game against Belgium.

But Moyes said: “I’ve always thought in time Phil would get involved in coaching.

“But I think Phil still sees himself as a player and I think Phil has played as well as anyone at Everton this year.

“Like us all he had a sticky start, but whether it be in midfield or full back he has always been consistent and reliable.

“At the moment he wants to play. He is such a good guy and knowledgeable and understands what it takes for players to win.

“If you go about your business as he does then you will be very well respected. From players, managers and coaches alike. And supporters.”
