Arsene Wenge offers Gary Neville some advice

Arsene Wenger insists beleaguered Valencia head coach Gary Neville has to keep faith in his methods to survive.

Neville has endured a poor start to his managerial career, hitting a low point with a 7-0 thrashing from Barcelona in the Copa del Rey this week.

Wenger reckons Neville must stick to his values. 

“Keep faith in what he is doing,” Wenger said. “He has not lost his knowledge overnight.”

Neville does feels Neville’s standing in the game served him well in landing a big-name club. 

“Most of the time the reputation of a big player gets you a big club early,” he said. 

“You do not start at Fleetwood. When you are (Pep) Guardiola you start straight at Barcelona. 

“When you are not a big name, you have first to battle. 

“That is a disadvantage because you do not start as high. 

“But, on the other hand, you learn your job.”
