Former England defender Phil Neville is the latest recruit to David Moyes’ backroom team at Manchester United.
Neville, who started his career at Old Trafford before moving to Everton under Moyes in 2005, returns to his former club as a coach.
The 36-year-old was recently on the UEFA A Licence course before joining the England Under-21s coaching staff for Euro 2013 in Israel last month.
He follows United winger Ryan Giggs, who was earlier confirmed as player-coach in Moyes's new set-up at the Premier League champions.
"When I retired from football I knew that I wanted to continue in the game; it's something that I have been preparing for over the last few years," said Neville.
"So when David called to give me this opportunity, I couldn't resist.
"I gave my all when I played for Everton but it is no secret that this club is in my heart."
And Moyes welcomed the arrival of his former Goodison Park captain.
"I have known and worked with Philip for eight years and, in that time, I have come to know his dedication, ability to lead and appetite for hard work.
“In addition, of course, he understands the club very well and I think his addition to the coaching staff will be a valuable one."
It was while Neville was in Israel with the Young Lions that he announced his retirement from playing after he left Everton at the end of last season.
He recalled his first experience of working behind the scenes with the Under-21s in February 2012 and said that spurred him in to think about his future in coaching.
“That was the biggest turning point of my life really – in my coaching life,” said Neville. “That gave me the thirst for more, it inspired me that this is something that I want to do. It was fascinating.
“I want to work, coach and get more hours on the grass. I want to develop that side of it.”
