Papers: Neville return?

Sam Wallace writes in The Independent...

Neville to join backroom staff
Phil Neville will return to his old club Manchester United as a coach this summer to join David Moyes' backroom staff, with an announcement expected soon. The former United player, who came through the club's academy, played for Moyes at Everton for eight years and has had a range of job offers this summer, including a coach's role at Stoke City. It marks a meteoric rise for the Neville brothers in recent years. Gary Neville is a key figure in Roy Hodgson's staff with the England team. Phil will join coach Jimmy Lumsden and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods as part of Moyes' staff. He will work with Stuart Pearce with the England Under-21s at the European Championship this summer.

Elsewhere, The Telegraph report Wilfried Zaha will win his fight to be fit for England Under-21s' opening match in the European Championship. Stuart Pearce's side face Italy in Tel Aviv on Wednesday 5 June.

In transfer news, The Daily Star link United to Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and claim Liverpool and Chelsea are also interested in the 25-year-old Bosnian. But Begovic appears happy to stay at the Britannia. He says: "I am committed to the club until someone tells me otherwise."
