Phil Neville has confirmed that he has just been appointed assistant manager at Valencia. Since being a part of the coaching staff at United under David Moyes and Ryan Giggs, Neville has now replaced Ian Cathro as Nuno Espirito Santo’s assistant at the Spanish club.

“Phil has extensive experience at the highest level but above all has very clear knowledge and values ​​that fit into our team and our club,” said Nuno. “We share the same philosophy. He will help a lot, I believe.”

Last November, Phil visited Valencia with Paul Scholes, and spent some time at the club and at their new megastore.

Then, last month, Phil returned to Valencia with his brother Gary.
