A few weeks ago, David Flitcroft was removed from his coaching role on the English League One club Bury FC after going through a string of 11 matches where him and his squad were not able to secure a single triumph.
Following the dismissal of Flitcroft, rumors and reports have begun to emerge in relation to who is going to be the next coach of Bury FC and the former Manchester United player Phil Neville was one of the candidates.
After Phil Neville announced his retirement from playing competitive football on 2013, he has embarked on new challenges. Neville is a pundit who does commentaries on football radio shows and he has also earned coaching badges after spending some time as an assistant coach in Valencia.
Neville has also been the first-team coach of Manchester United and taking into consideration the fact that his father Nevile Neville was the commercial director of Bury FC and that his mother is the club secretary, Phil Neville has strong ties and a fairly close relationship with the English League One club but the former Manchester United player has shut down those rumors as he has recently stated that he will not be taking charge of Bury FC.
“My mum is the club secretary, I spoke to her four times today and she’s never offered me the job so I don’t think I’ve got a chance. They have good owners at Bury, they’ve got a good future, and they plough money into it. They have a fantastic training ground. I keep reading reports that I’m going to be the next manager of Bury. I am not going to Bury. I will not be manager of Bury, I can assure you of that.” Neville said as he confirmed that he will not be the next manager of Bury FC.
