Gary Neville admits one of his biggest regrets during his ill-fated stint at Valencia was ignoring Sir Alex Ferguson’s managerial advice.

The former Manchester United captain was named Valencia’s interim coach in a shock move in 2015.

It was Neville’s first move into management but it was anything but smooth as he was sacked just over three months into his stint after winning just ten of his 28 games.

Neville has since insisted he’ll never return to management and the former United captain says he regrets not listening to Ferguson’s advice when he first took over at the Mestalla.

‘Early on, it was clear that some players were unhappy. I should have made big decisions on players that weren’t committed to club at that point.’ Neville told Sky Sports.

‘I remember speaking to Sir Alex Ferguson quite early on and his advice was: ‘”Just get rid of them, son. Protect yourself. Only have people in the dressing room that are facing the same direction as you.”

‘But I didn’t listen. I tried to talk some players round to staying until the end of the season. But they weren’t happy.

‘I ignored Sir Alex Ferguson’s advice’.
