David Beckham is backing ex-Manchester United teammate Phil Neville to turn things around at Inter Miami.

That's according to a report in The Sun, which suggests co-owner Beckham has no desire to press the panic button amid his MLS franchise's dismal stretch.

With a certain Paul Pogba watching on in the stands, Miami were humbled 5-0 at home by New England Revolution in their most recent Eastern Conference fixture.

It means the 2018-founded side have now lost six on the bounce. As thing stand, under Neville, they have compiled the worst record among the 27 MLS clubs this season.

Speaking post-match, the former United defender — who played alongside Beckham up until his Real Madrid switch in 2003 — answered questions on the team's dismal form.

He said: "It is the lowest in terms of my feelings since I have come here. The manner we lost was unacceptable, it feels worse than that.

"Players need to take a long hard look at themselves and so do I. I will take full responsibility and ultimately it is my job to make this team better and that is on my shoulders.

"There are no excuses. We all have to look in the mirror, not just the players. Team does not have an I in it, it needs everyone pulling together. I am asking for a team that fights together, like a brotherhood. We have to start fighting for this football club.

"I've been in football long enough and I know the consequences. That's no problem to me."

Despite taking on that responsibility — and acknowledging the pressure on him — Neville's future is not immediately thought to be on the line.

As per those reports, Beckham and his co-owner at Miami are backing his former Old Trafford colleague to things around in the second half of this campaign.

Neville and Miami take on second-placed Philadelphia Union on Monday.
