Captain Phil Neville has described the appointment of his brother, Our Gary, to the England coaching staff as a "masterstroke".
England manager Roy Hodgson brought Gary Neville on board ahead of this summer's European Championships.
The former Manchester United defender, who retired earlier this season, will juggle the England job with his role as analyst on Sky Sports but Captain Phil does not believe there will be a clash because he rates honesty as his brother's best quality.
Captain Phil said: 'I know what Gary will do for the squad. It came as a bolt out of the blue. He has had such a successful time with Sky and I think he was looking to put his feet up this summer. The first thing I thought was 'what a clever move by Roy Hodgson'.
'From a PR exercise, he has not gone for a 'yes' man, he has gone for someone who will challenge him and the team. I think it was a masterstroke. There is a new era coming in now. I am really positive. I think the appointment of Roy Hodgson was a clever one and the appointment of my brother as his number two excited me even more.
'He is someone who has played in five major tournaments played nearly 90 times for England and someone who has played with nearly all the players. But he has had a year away from them, which gives that distance. He is well respected and the year he has had on the telly has won a lot of people over.
'His biggest strength will be his honesty. People will say 'you can't go on telly one week and be a coach the next'. Let me tell you one thing about Gary, whatever he says on TV he would be prepared to say to a player's face in the changing room.'
'Gary will be honest. He has so much enthusiasm for wanting England to do better.'
Sounds like Captain Phil rates his brother!
