Everton captain Phil Neville believes brother Gary will become a "fantastic" manager in time and is determined to follow him down the coaching path.

Former Manchester United defender Gary, the elder brother at 37, is currently out in Ukraine with England having joined Roy Hodgson's set-up last month. The ex-England international, who holds UEFA A and B coaching licences, has signed a four-year contract with the Football Association.

"Gary will be a fantastic coach and I'm sure one day he will be a fantastic manager," said Phil, who has just completed the first part of his A licence course and is well on course with his coaching plans. "He's got that aura about him and the knowledge, and I think he'll have the respect of the players."
