I was 'chucked overboard' – Neville

Gary Neville

Former England and Manchester United defender Gary Neville says he has been “chucked overboard” after leaving coaching roles with England and Valencia this year.

Neville, 41, was sacked by the La Liga club in March after less than four months in charge.

He left his post as England assistant manager after their Euro 2016 exit.

“It could be that I’m no longer ever a coach in football. That’s not a loss,” he told Sky Sports News.

“The FA invested in me for four years. I’m the most experienced I’ve ever been yet you get chucked overboard.”

Valencia won three of their 16 league games under Neville, and 10 of 28 matches overall.

Neville co-owns National League North side Salford City with fellow ex-United stars Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and brother Phil.

He was also involved in the development of Hotel Football, near his former club’s Old Trafford stadium, and said these commitments meant he did not want to return to coaching “in the next five years”.
