Fresh start? How old and new coaches compare
Phil Neville stuck with England’s passing style, but Sarina Wiegman let her Euro 2017 winners play ugly when they had to. Despite criticism from the Dutch press, they kept on winning.
Bond with team
Neville was well-liked by his players and unafraid to share his emotions. As a club manager, Wiegman operated an open-door policy and while some players felt she was stubborn on team selection, she was respected and got on their level.
Neville enjoyed some success – winning the SheBelieves Cup last year – but his approach felt unfinished and his inexperience showed. Wiegman has managed in the women’s game for more than a decade and won her first tournament as Holland manager.
