The 41-year-old, who is also a coach in Roy Hodgson’s England set-up, was an eye-opening replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo in December, and he struggled to make an impression at the Mestalla.

With Valencia languishing in 14th place in the Primera Division table, Los Che on Wednesday announced Neville had been relieved of his duties as first-team coach, with former Liverpool assistant Pako Ayestaran taking the reins until the end of the season.

A statement published by the club on Wednesday afternoon read:
Valencia Football Club has today terminated its contractual relationship with Gary Neville as first team coach.

After carefully analysing the sporting situation, the club has decided to make this change in the best interests of Valencia for the remainder of the season.

The club thanks Gary Neville for his work and wishes him the best of luck in the future.
