And with UEFA preparing to announce a delay to the European Championship until 2022, it means the former Manchester United midfielder’s tenure as Three Lions boss could effectively be over.

It is still unclear whether or not he will be in charge of the women’s GB side for next year’s postponed Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The Times claim that Neville will have a role in who his successor will be.

Neville succeeded Mark Sampson as Lionesses manager in January 2018, signing a three-year deal in the process.


 

Neville led England to SheBelieves Cup glory in 2019 and fourth place at that year’s World Cup but talk over his future has ratcheted up in recent months.

Following this year’s SheBelieves Cup, Neville said he would walk away if his motivation waned, and said: “We need to take a step back now and start building the foundations again – getting back to the brilliant basics.”

The Lionesses have lost seven of their last 11 matches in all competitions under Neville’s stewardship.
