Hodgson said he would give a ringing endorsement to the former Manchester United man if he is asked who he wants to take over from him when he eventually leaves his post.
This comes at a time when Neville is said to be deciding whether to pursue a full-time coaching career or continue being a successful pundit for Sky Sports, with a decision set to come into effect after the 2016 European Championships.
“If you’re asking me would I like to see Gary in management then yes I would,” said Hodgson, reports Daily Express.
“It’s up to the FA to decide what his value is. He is a very good coach now and will become an even better coach. And yes, he could be a future England manager.”
The news comes, however, as Hodgson has failed to rule out whether he will continue as England boss after the tournament in France next year.
His current deal is set to take him until the end of the Euros but when asked about the possibility of taking the team to Russia in 2018, Hodgson was particularly bullish.
“We’ll see, I don’t know. At the moment I feel good and I don’t feel anything like my age and I hope that will continue for a few more years,” he said, reports Daily Mirror.
