Gary Neville doesn't feel it's the 'right time' for management

Neville joined Roy Hodgson's England coaching team ahead of Euro 2012 just 18 months after calling time on his stellar playing career.

Instead of management, the former Manchester United full-back opted to take up the offer of a lead pundit's role with Sky Sports, for which he has earned rave reviews.

Speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester, Neville said he is loving his twin roles at present but admitted offers to take on management roles had been made.

"I have been offered two or three roles in the last 18 months but it would not have been the right decision," he said.

Neville has taken his UEFA badges. However, having seen so many head straight from their playing career into management with disastrous results, he is not keen to follow.

"I see a lot of people rush into coaching too quickly," he said.

"In two years they are finished. There are a lot of crazy owners out there."
