Gary Neville’s first attempt at management ended in a massive failure

Gary Neville’s first attempt at management ended in a massive failure after he lasted less than six months at Valencia before being sacked.

It was a huge surprise that Neville decided to take up his first job as a manager at a foreign club. Best known for his time at Manchester United, Neville would have been odds-on favourite to take over at an English club. Having previously worked as a pundit at Sky Sports, there were even those who questioned if Neville was ever going to enter into management and apply the principles learnt from Sir Alex Ferguson of all managers.

His first job at Valencia ended in massive disappointment after the club went from one bad result to another under the management of Neville. The Spanish outfit had to do something in order to stay in the division and they decided to call an end to Neville’s time much earlier than his contract had to run.

Premier League denies Leicester City TV for further Telecast

The Premier League has denied Leicester City TV the opportunity to show the game against Manchester United live on TV.

The foxes could be crowned as the new Premier League champions – something which seemed like an impossibility by year ago – with a win at Old Trafford this weekend. Given the unprecedented nature of the situation, Leicester City TV were hoping to gain access to the game in order to provide its supporters, who have been unable to get a ticket, with the opportunity to enjoy the occasion. However, the Premier League has agreed a deal with Sky Sports and it prevents the mass distribution of TV rights.

Sky Sports along with BT pay a large sum of money in order to broadcast the live games throughout the campaign. They hold the rights for broadcasting the games within United Kingdom, while international rights are being held by individual broadcasters across the world. The interest within the Premier League is so intense that the TV money has been growing with every renewal. Next season, the TV money will cross £ 5 billion just for the domestic rights. It is reported that even if BT were to show the live games, they will also not allow Leicester City TV to screen the event.
