Phil Neville has been quick to apologize to Inter Miami fans after being watched even more closely following an embarrassing loss to New England Revolution.
Inter Miami, co-owned by David Beckham, lost for the sixth time in a row on Thursday after being beaten 5-0 by New England. The loss put them at the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference.
In their run of six consecutive defeats, the newly created franchise has conceded 13 goals while scoring only once themselves, and the pressure on Neville has been seriously ramped up.

Neville’s time as boss of Inter Miami, which has the worst record of all 27 MLS clubs, is in danger of turning into disaster and he has since apologized to the supporters – stressing that they deserve much more.
The former England Women’s manager, who took office in the US in January, said: “It’s the lowest in terms of my feelings after a defeat I’ve had since joining this football club – and we have some disappointments.
“You can lose games in football, but the way we lost tonight was… we’ve said the word unacceptable in the past – it feels worse than that.
“It’s a matter of playing for your pride, for the badge, for your supporters – I can only apologize for what they saw tonight. I feel more for them than for myself or the players, because they deserve better.’
The Inter Miami players were booed to the locker room by their fans after their humiliating 5-0 defeat.

It was the worst defeat in the club’s, albeit brief, history. They trailed 4-0 at halftime, which many believe was their forte – including the roster of former Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain and ex-PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi.
Beckham has invested $40 million of his own money into the team, but his dream has turned into a bit of a nightmare.
And Neville has since urged his team to “take a good look at themselves” after their latest embarrassment.
Neville added: ‘I did not expect it. The players have to take a good look at themselves, and so do I. We win and we lose together.
“Ultimately, my job is to make this team better, and right now they’re not. That’s on my shoulders.
“If we get a disappointment, we have to make sure we can recover. That’s what football is all about: having guts, having guts, not disappointing your teammates on the field.’
