Neville: I won't end up in management

Neville: I won't end up in management

Gary Neville's coaching career began, but the Valencia boss revealed he does not intend to stay in the dugout long-term.

Neville says his future does not lie in management, just a month after being appointed head coach of Valencia.

The former Manchester United captain has only just started his first spell as a number one, appointed Los Che boss until the end of the season, having served an apprenticeship under England's Roy Hodgson, Omnisport reported.

But somewhat surprisingly, the decorated former defender has already revealed he does not expect his long-term future to be in the dugout.

"I'm not going to say where I want to end up, and it isn't in management or head coaching, so I want to be clear about that," Neville told Sky Sports.

"That's not my ultimate goal of where I want to be. From my point of view, I was really enjoying what I was doing, I really was, the multiple things I had on, even though I knew it was coming to a point where I had to make decisions at the end of this season.

"This came at the right time, because it has allowed me to think: 'OK, four, five years out of football, I've experienced a lot in the different facets of football.'

"Whether media, broadcasting, head coach, assistant manager with England, being a part-owner of a football club and seeing it from that side, and the other business stuff I do.

"I've always wanted to experience as many things as possible. But it was getting to that point where I need to come away from everything and concentrate on certain things."
