New England women's head coach Phil Neville said Monday he "cannot be more qualified" to take on the role, defending his appointment that was overshadowed by sexist tweets.The 41-year-old was named Lionesses boss last Tuesday, but has no past experience of working in the women's game and lacks overall management experience.The former Manchester United, Everton and England defender succeeds Mark Sampson, who was sacked in September over allegations of misconduct in a previous role and amid a racism row that led to widespread criticism of senior FA figures.Neville appeared to delete his Twitter account after the comments were republished and subsequently apologized while the Football Association said he would not be punished.
