DAVID BECKHAM is ramping up his search for a new Inter Miami manager after Phil Neville was sacked last week.
The 35-year-old’s summer switch will instantly make the post a much more attractive one, despite Inter Miami’s lowly position in the table.
Becks’ side sit bottom of MLS’ Eastern Conference, having lost 11 of their 16 matches so far this season.
Their awful start followed last season’s first round play-off exit at the hands of New York City FC.
While Brendan Rodgers’ name has also been mentioned – with the ex-Anfield duo both starting at 8/1.
Among the early bookies’ contenders as an outside 66/1 shot was none other than Phil Neville’s older brother, Gary.
The 48-year-old has had one experience in management, enduring a disastrous spell as Valencia boss during the 2015-16 season.
Neville won just 10 of his 28 matches in charge, while he oversaw a 7-0 thumping at the hands of Messi’s Barcelona.
The Manchester United legend has previously ruled out ever returning to the dugout after his harrowing experience.
But should he get the call from his pal Beckham, the possibility of managing Messi might be too tempting to turn down.
Neville and Beckham are both stakeholders in Salford City, as well as Gary’s brother Phil.
Also in the frame are American duo Steve Cherundolo and Jim Curtin, with the pair having been mentioned at 10/1.
While Uruguay boss Marcelo Bielsa was listed at 12/1, and former LA Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard at 16/1.
