Valencia head coach Gary Neville said that his future does not lie in management just weeks after being appointed manger of the Spanish football club.
The former England and Manchester United defender is yet to win a game with Valencia but has been put in-charge till the end of the season.
“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 was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Saturday.
“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.”
Neville said he has always wanted to experience as many things as possible.
“This came at the right time, because it has allowed me to think: ‘okay, 4-5 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,” said Neville.
“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.”
England assistant manager Neville will continue in his role with the national side going into Euro 2016, with head coach Roy Hodgson’s contract due to expire after the tournament.
