Former Manchester United
captain Gary Neville has stated that he has no intention of becoming a manager in the future, insisting that he is happy being a coach.
Neville, who retired from playing professional football in January 2011, was a surprise appointment to England manager Roy Hodgson's backroom staff for this summer's European Championship after forging a career for himself as a pundit.
Several of Neville's former team-mates at Manchester United such as Roy Keane and Mark Hughes have gone on to become club managers, but Neville has dismissed the idea of following them into the job.
"I have no aspiration to be a football manager. I want to do what I am doing and make as big an impact as I can," he told the Daily Mail.
The 37-year-old impressed at Euro 2012, making a positive impact on the squad despite England going out at the quarter-final stage, and he believes that this is only the beginning of a long learning curve in coaching.
He added: "I really enjoyed it [Euro 2012]. Who would not enjoy being part of a tournament? It was an incredible experience for me.
"But I am acutely aware it is only the very beginning. I am ambitious and young and I want to learn more."
Neville is set to return to his role as a pundit in time for the new season, but will continue in his coaching role for England who face a friendly with Italy on August 15.
