Joleon Lescott has backed Gary Neville's appointment as a member of Roy Hodgson's England backroom team.

Hodgson sprang a surprise last week when it was confirmed Neville had signed a four-year contract as coach, with major responsibilities to act as liaison man between England's players and their new manager. Doubts were expressed about Neville's suitability given his status as a media pundit and long-time association with Manchester United.

Having seen his work for Sky Sports, the Manchester City defender Lescott does not believe there will be a problem. "A lot of people thought he might be biased towards Manchester United but, watching the games and hearing his opinions, I don't think he has," said Lescott.
