Gary Neville leaps into the managerial arena with Spanish outfit Valenciaby Jack Kitson / 02 December 2015, 12:18Tweet
Gary Neville has been appointed the new manager of Valencia.
Yes, you've read that correctly. Everybody's favourite Sky Sports TV pundit has jetted over to Spain and ventured into the managerial arena with Los Che, just hours after he was hotly linked with the Fulham vacancy.
It's fair to say that this is one of the more surprising managerial moves in recent years, with the news literally coming out of nowhere.

Earlier today Neville stormed into the Fulham frame, which was a shock in itself, but it turns out that this meant absolutely nothing, with the former Man Utd skipper now joining forces with brother PhilÂ at the La Liga outfit.
Neville replaces Nuno in the dugout after the latter parted ways with the club on Sunday night following a 1-0 defeat to Seville. The 40-year-old inherits a side that are 9th in the Primera Division after 13 matches, but with only five points separating them from the top-4, Neville will no doubt be confident of leading his new troops up the ladder.
Gutted! This reminds me of when Pegguy Arphexad left for Coventry. https://t.co/M535r7L2qo- Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) December 2, 2015
