Veteran coaches Phil Neville, Richard Shaw join Canadian men's soccer staff
Canada coach John Herdman has called in some veteran help for his team's push for a trophy this summer.
Phil Neville and Richard Shaw are joining Herdman's coaching staff.
Neville is a former England international who was in charge of Inter Miami CF until he was fired June 1. Shaw is a former Crystal Palace, Coventry City and Millwall defender who is currently a development coach with Watford.
They join Herdman's existing staff of assistants Mauro Biello, Simon Eaddy and Eric Tenllado.
Herdman says he is looking for "the next level of winning mentality."
'It's part of the progress toward [the World Cup in]2026," he added.
Neville will be with the team for the CONCACAF Nations League and hopefully the Gold Cup, Herdman said.
"Obviously he's just come out of work with Miami so it's been pretty last minute in terms of being able to access him," he said. "So that's an ongoing conversation with Phil. At this stage it's an opportunity to come in, just get a different experience, take himself out of the head coach pressures and just enjoy a different environment."
