Neville joins England coaching staff
The former Manchester United defender has signed a four-year contract, which allows him to continue his work as a television pundit.
"He has obtained UEFA coaching qualifications and will be tremendously respected by the players because of his vast experience as a player. At my first meeting with the FA, I explained that Gary was someone I wanted as part of my staff.
"I think it is very important we have a younger coach who knows the dressing room and is very experienced at international level. That he has represented England as a player at five major finals tournaments will make him an invaluable member of staff."
Neville confirmed his retirement from the game in February 2010, having played 602 times for United and made 85 England appearances. A member of the famed 'Class of 92', he was widely acclaimed as the best right-back of his generation.
Now he is delighted to be back within the England fold ahead of EURO 2012. "Roy asking me to be a part of his staff and to work with the national team is not only an honour but a very special moment for me," said Neville.
"I had absolutely no hesitation in accepting this role and I am relishing the opportunity to work alongside Roy and the team at the EUROs and through to the next two tournaments."
