Ex Manchester United player and sports analyst for Sky Sports, Gary Neville has been appointed as the head coach for Valencia till the end of this season. Valencia owners are very happy by landing Gary Neville with this much ease in Valencia.
Valencia is playing in the champions league right now, but they are way too far from qualifying for the next season’s Champions League. They have just own only 5 of their first 11 games in the La Liga and are struggling away from home. The master analyst Gary Neville is expected to solve the issues in the team and to provide a bright future.
It’s obvious, Gary Neville sees the game like no one else. He was exceptional on the pitch as a player which earned him 600+ appearances for Man Utd, countless honours and 85 caps for the country. His analysis for the Sky Sports along with Jamie Carragher was really exceptional. He has proved himself as a good coach when he took the job of assistant manager of Roy Hodgson for the England National side. England has only lost one in his time and the English defense improved very much. So, it should not be very hard for the Englishman to make amends at Valencia.
But someone like Didi Hamann beg to differ from our views. He thinks, it will be hard for Gary to cope up at Spain as he has never played or stayed outside of England till now. The good news for the defender is that he will be reunited with brother Phil Neville. Phil also took a job at Valencia this year.
Gary had said earlier that the job as an analyst gave him more insights of the game and helped him to love football more than ever. In a statement to the club’s official website Neville said –
“I am really looking forward to working with the club’s talented group of players and am excited about the challenge ahead.”
Official unveiling of Gary as a Valencia manager will be done on Thursday afternoon. The managers who started their career at Valencia were sacked within two seasons. Gary will try to improve that for sure and will continue as the right hand of Hodgson in the England national side too.
Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher were by far the best analysts of football and their banters were quite enjoyable too. Hope he does well at Valencia and let the banter continue.
