Former England international Phil Neville has been appointed assistant coach of Valencia, the Spanish side announced on Sunday.

The 38-year-old ex-Manchester United and Everton defender-cum-midfielder will work as the number two at the Mestalla to Portuguese coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

“Phil Neville has great experience at the top level of competition, but above all he has knowledge and values that fit perfectly with our team and our club,” Nuno told Valencia’s website.

“He has always been a team player, and our philosophy is based on teamwork. We are –- and want to continue to be — a group.

“I am convinced that he is going to help us a lot.”

Neville previously worked as the assistant to David Moyes at Everton and United.

He can look forward to coming up against Moyes, who is the coach at Real Sociedad.

Valencia will enter next season’s Champions League at the play-off stage after finishing fourth in La Liga.
