Phil Neville feels sense of relief after first win since May

Inter Miami head coach Phil Neville has admitted to a sense of team-wide relief after ending their six-game losing streak by defeating CF Montreal 2-1. 

Miami currently sits in last place of the Eastern Conference with 12 points from 14 matches, only managing three wins so far this season. The team quickly spiralled downward after their victory against FC Cincinnati on 16 May, failing to secure a victory until Sunday’s match against Montreal.  

“There is an element of relief throughout the whole club,” head coach Phil Neville admitted when speaking with the media on Monday. “You want to reverse the string of defeats” 

Their biggest disappointment of the 2021 Major League Soccer season came on 21 July after losing to the New England Revolution 5-0. 

“The game against New England was terrible, but our reaction shows our mentality,” defender Kelvin Leerdam said. “It’s about not giving up, sometimes it’s nice when you earn it the hard way. We’re heading in the right direction. We’re climbing up slowly, but we’re heading in the right direction.”
