Neville’s brother Phil has been at the club since the start of the season, working as an assistant to Nuno Espirito Santo before he left the club after a poor run of results on Sunday.

“I am very excited and feel very proud to have received this great opportunity with Valencia,” Neville told the club’s website.

“It is a huge club of immense prestige and I remember well from my time as a player the great passion and loyalty of their fans.”
