New Delhi: Former England international footballer and Manchester United legend Gary Neville may join as marquee coach of Indian Super League side Delhi Dynamos, according to reports.
Reports of Neville's likely move to Delhi Dynamos for the third edition of the ISL have emerged after UK-based, FA licensed, football agent Baljit Rihal posted an update on social media platform Twitter.
Baljit, believed to have been closely associated with a lot of high-profile transfers in the ISL over the past two years, is the same person who had mentioned last year that Chelsea veteran Didier Drogba could be moving to Atletico de Kolkata. However, any such move did not happen at the end.
None of the Delhi Dynamos officials were ready to comment on this development.
Neville, 41, is the most capped England right back and an eight-time English Premier League winners with the Red Devils.
After a celebrated career with the Old Trafford club, Neville signed up for a stint with Sky Sports where he is a revered pundit.
The former Manchester United skipper also assisted Roy Hodgson with the English national team before taking the plunge into club management with La Liga side Valencia last December.
However, after a string of losses, the Englishman was sacked in March.
Delhi Dynamos were previously being coached by Brazilian great Roberto Carlos and reached the semi-finals last year.
