It’s one of the most high-profile managerial appointments of recent times and a move that set Social Media alight once it was announced that Gary Neville would be taking on the role of head coach at Valencia.
And naturally the bookies aren’t missing a trick with Ladbrokes offering a number of specials regarding how the Manchester United legend and current England assistant manager will fare in La Liga as well as further on in his career.
It’s just 4/7 that the 40-year-old is still in charge for the last game of the season and Evens for Neville to sign any player from his former club before September 1 2016.
Meanwhile, for those of you think this is just the first step towards the former defender becoming a managerial titan there are plenty of eye-catching prices to get stuck into.
It’s 80/1 that Valencia win the Champions League with Neville at the helm while it’s 4/1 for his new side to fulfil the more modest ambition of qualifying for next season’s competition.
And as for becoming Roy Hodgson’s successor and taking England’s top job it may be wise to snap up the 2/1 on offer if you believe Neville is bound to make a significant mark in La Liga.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Whatever happens to Neville during his tenure in Spain it looks like this appointment is a stepping stone to England and possibly United too. We’re anticipating record-breaking levels of betting interest in his first game in the dugout.”
