Gary Neville will not be "calling the shots" when he starts work alongside new England manager Roy Hodgson on the training pitch, according to former team-mate Roy Keane.

Ex-Manchester United defender Neville has become part of Hodgson's backroom staff ahead of Euro 2012, penning a four-year deal. The 37-year-old, capped 85 times for England, became the Red Devils skipper following Keane's departure from Old Trafford in 2005, going on to lift the Premier League twice.

"Gary would say his piece, but he wasn't running the show, far from it so don't think for one minute he will be going into England and calling the shots," said former Republic of Ireland midfielder Keane, who will be part of ITV Sport's media team at Euro 2012.
