Former Man Utd star Gary Neville appointed Valencia coach
Text size Aa Aa

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has been appointed head coach of Valencia until the end of the current season.

At the Spanish club Neville will join up with brother Phil who has been assistant coach there since July.

At the helm the 40-year-old replaces Nuno Espirito Santo, who resigned after Sunday’s defeat at Sevilla left the side ninth in La Liga.

Valencia, who finished last season fourth, is owned by Singaporean Peter Lim who also has a stake in Salford City, the non-league club co-owned by the Neville brothers and fellow former United players Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.

Neville, who will officially take charge from Sunday, will remain part of England’s coaching staff where he’s had a role since 2012.
