Today marks the death of Monday Night Football. Sky should just call it a day now.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has been appointed as Valencia’s head coach until the end of the season.
The English assistant will work alongside brother Phil at the Mestalla after coach Nuno quit the Spanish side last week.
BREAKING: Gary Neville is the new VALENCIA coach!!!!!
RIP SKY SPORTS, MNF & @Carra23

The La Liga club are owned by Peter Lim who also has a stake in Salford City, where Neville is a part owner.
Whilst Gary Neville has impressed many with his punditry and tactical insight on Sky Sports, there were no signs that the 40-year-old was looking to get into management so soon, and his appointment at a club the size of Valencia is also quite shocking.
Here’s what Twitter thought…
Gutted! This reminds me of when Pegguy Arphexad left for Coventry.
