Gary Neville has never been a placid man. 

The former Manchester United and England defender is known for his passion and his emotions were once again on show at Euro 2016, where he was part of the Three Lions' coaching team. 

With the inquest into England's failings at the tournament underway, both Neville and former boss Roy Hodgson have now left their positions with the national side.

Rumours of a rift 

And as part of that inquest, the Guardian have suggested that one of the reasons for the disastrous defeat to Iceland was a falling-out between Neville and Hodgson.

It's safe to say Neville is not happy with the article, tweeting in reply:

"This is absolute bull****! Apology? Removal of article? Let me know!"

The 41-year-old is clearly furious with claims that a rift between the two coaches "undermined" England's campaign, so it's no wonder he hasn't held back in his criticism. 

Tensions high

The paper also reported that while the players in the squad bonded well, tensions were so high that the FA told the Auberge du Jeu de Paume hotel to remove its chandeliers, or risk them being smashed up in anger. 

It's difficult to know who to believe with claim and counter-claim being made. 

The only thing that's certain is that Neville will have to get used to being under such scrutiny if he is to be part of any future England set-up. 

Uncertain future

Neville has been linked with a return, though at present there is little to no indication of who the manager will be. 

Laurent Blanc and Glenn Hoddle are the current favourites, with the former having recently left Paris Saint-Germain after another title-winning season. 

Whatever the future holds for England, it's going to take a lot of work to patch up the wounds from this summer.
