Phil Neville was appointed as head coach of England Women on Tuesday following the controversial reign of Mark Sampson in charge of the national side.
The announcement of the well-known, former Manchester United and Everton player has split opinion amongst observers with Neville posessing little in the way of experience in the women’s game.
Mean-spirited people have been digging through his old tweets in an attempt to have him sacked or forced to resign but, for now, he stays – and these were the best of the jokes as Phil Neville was formally placed at the helm of England Women:
