Neville's appointment comes a week after his former Manchester United team mate and fellow "Class of 92" member Ryan Giggs was named Wales manager. Sue Campbell, the FA director of women's football who oversaw the recruitment process, paid tribute to Marley, who will return to her role leading England's development squads, and welcomed Neville's appointment on a three-year contract. "His enthusiasm, passion and desire for the role impressed us all and once he emerged as a candidate, we knew we had the right person for this talented squad," she said.
"There is no greater honour than representing your country and it will be a privilege to do it again."January 23, 2018
