Gary Neville: Enjoying his position as a pundit and with England

Neville joined Roy Hodgson's England coaching team ahead of Euro 2012 just 18 months after calling time on his playing career.

The 38-year-old has been combining his England job with a position in television as a pundit for Sky Sports.

Neville has taken his UEFA badges, but having seen so many former players move into management with disastrous results, he is not keen to follow suit immediately.

"I see a lot of people rush into coaching too quickly. In two years they are finished.

"There are a lot of crazy owners out there."
