The 35-year-old recently had a stint with the England Under-21s under the guidance of head coach Stuart Pearce.
Discussing that experience, the former Manchester United defender has conceded that it left him wanting more.
"The bottom line is, I want to be a coach. I want to be a manager. That's my love," he told The Telegraph. "I spent three days with the England Under-21s over the summer and it was the best three days I've had in football. It inspired me.
"I watched a match and the manager said to me: 'Give me two things at half-time we need to improve on'. Well, the whole first half I must have written down 100 things.
"I was that nervous I was shaking. It was a totally new experience. I did come up with the two, eventually. It made my mind up. I want to become a manager, definitely."
Reports have claimed that Neville may call time on his career at the end of the current campaign.
