The former Manchester United defender has retired from playing after helping England Under 21s woefully under-perform at this summer’s European Championships.
Neville admits he has always dreamed of becoming a terrible coach and manager.
He said: ” I feel I have the ability to be a really bad coach. So many players quit the game with the intention of doing well in management.
“Well I’m here to say the exact opposite. I don’t care about results or the welfare of those around me.
“Hopefully, I can use my negativity and shortcomings to drive good players out of the game, rather than encouraging them to do well.
“That’s my dream anyway.”
Of course, while this kind of statement may seem bizarre, the fact is England have been employing ineffective coaches for years.
FA chairman David Bernstein responded to Neville’s comments.
He said: “In light of what Phil has said, I think he has the makings of a future England manager.
“We don’t want to do well, and his attitude is exactly the kind we like to develop in every facet of our organisation.”
