Former Valencia president Paco Roig has launched a foul-mouthed rant at Gary Neville, labelling him “the worst coach I have ever seen” and blaming him for the club “dying”.
Neville’s time in La Liga did not go well, with the Manchester United legend losing 11 of his 28 games in charge before he was sacked after less than four months in charge.
The Sky Sports pundit has since admitted that he may never go into management again – but his time in charge of the club has not been forgiven or forgotten by Roig in an irate interview on Friday.
“What does the owner know about football?” he asked, of Peter Lim, the man who appointed Neville. “The pundit who came, the Englishman, was the worst coach I have ever seen.”
Roig continued to discuss Valencia, who sit 17th in La Liga after 15 games, and current director of football, Jesus Garcia Pitarch.
“Pitarch says nothing but nonsense and has bought f***ing sh*t players,” he said.
“What has Pitarch done to deserve leading Spain’s third biggest club? I’ve had it up to my balls with all these lies.
“Garcia Pitarch says that he has said that he is leaving and that they will not let him go…let him go!”
Roig then took aim at striker Rodrigo, who has scored six goals in 38 games since joining for £25m.
“Why sign a player for €30m if he is sh*t? Valencia is f***ed. It’s a disaster. It hurts me to say, but the club is dying.”
