Gary Neville labelled last night’s defeat as his most ‘painful experience’ in football

Barcelona handed Gary Neville’s Valencia their worst defeat in 23 years, as the Catalans ran riot, humilating the visitors with a 7-0 win at the Camp Nou. Luis Suarez scored four while Lionel Messi scored a hat-trick for Barcelona, thus handing Gary Neville his worst night in his nascent career as a manager.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

As a former TV pundit, Neville earned high praise for the clarity with which he outlined and explained tactital ideas. But clearly, his fellow peers on television are aware that things are easier on television than in real life.

Spanish Newspaper AS got in on the act as well, as they humourously implied that Neville might want to seek refuge in his home town of Manchester after last night’s hammering.

Football Manager is a game that has many football addicts live out their managerial fantasies. Things are easier in the virtual world thought, as every gamer who’s ever experienced things going wrong in the game has a single reaction. Quit and restart. Oh, how Neville wishes he could do the same!

Be careful of what you say, especially if one is a televison pundit. Gary Neville must be regretting this statement he made last year.

With his job now under intense pressure, perhaps Gary Neville ought to look to divine help for some much needed intervention.

The footballing world is merciless, and Gary Neville has quickly gone from footballing tactical master to his master dunce.

With ‘ Gary Neville out’ trending in Spain, perhaps it is time for the Manchester United legend to consider his future. However, when the question was put to him in a news conference, he had one answer, ‘No’.
