Ryan Giggs thinks Gary Neville is an outstanding addition to the England coaching staff and has backed his former Manchester United team-mate to go on and become a top-class manager.

England manager Roy Hodgson sprung a surprise on Monday when he handed Neville a four-year contract as England coach.

The 37-year-old has no experience of coaching at club, let alone international level yet, but Giggs said: "I'm sure he'll be a success with England."
