Hodgson keen to add Everton captain Neville to England staff

Everton skipper Phil Neville is wanted by Roy Hodgson for his England backroom team.

The Telegraph says Neville, who played 59 times for his country, has won respect for his role as Everton captain and he has already been involved with the England Under-21 squad. He came out to bat on Hodgson’s behalf yesterday following headlines in The Sun which mocked the new England manager’s manner of speaking.

“Have u seen front page of the sun this morning disgraceful journalism-what chance have we got!” Neville tweeted.
