Phil Neville swears at journalist in furious exchange after Inter Miami defeat

Beckham: Neville will help change Inter Miami's DNA

Inter Miami manager Phil Neville let rip on a journalist for interrupting him in his post-match press conference after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Orlando City. The former Manchester United and Everton defender produced a foul-mouthed rant before the press as his side’s troublesome MLS campaign took another hit.

Inter Miami hosted Orlando City in a Florida derby, looking to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat at Nashville a few days before.

But goals from Ercan Kara, Martin Ojeda and Rafael Santos secured a memorable trip across the state for Oscar Pareja’s men.

Neville unsurprisingly wasn’t in a bright mood after full-time, and being rubbed up the wrong way in his press conference sparked explosive results.

As he started answering a question fielded by Franco Panizo, the MLS journalist appeared to try and add something while Neville was talking.

And the former Lionesses boss didn’t react well, blasting the interruption with a small expletive rant before losing track of his answer.

“Can I finish speaking? Or are you going to interrupt? Can I finish speaking? Ok,” Neville fumed.

“Because I didn’t interrupt your question, so don’t interrupt mine. Show some f**king respect. Sorry for the language. So the… Sorry, what was the question? Ask me the question again, please.”

The defeat was Neville’s 41st in 87 games since club owner, and former United team-mate, David Beckham appointed him as manager in January 2021.

The Fort Lauderdale outfit are slumped in 12th after 13 Eastern Conference games this season, just two points from Toronto in rock-bottom.

Despite Inter Miami’s struggles in 2023, the 46-year-old has enjoyed a better coaching career than his brother, Gary Neville.

Now one of Sky Sports headline pundits and co-owner of League Two club Salford City, Neville lasted four months as Valencia manager after winning just three of his 16 games in charge.

Phil, who also has a stake in Salford, spent three years as England Women’s and Team GB boss before leaving for the United States in 2021.

But his actions at the weekend indicated that the kitchen could be getting a little too hot to handle ahead of Wednesday’s US Open Cup clash with Nashville.
