Ferguson backs Neville to succeed


Sir Alex Ferguson believes Gary Neville has all the attributes needed to be successful in his new role as head coach of Valencia.

Neville was named manager of the Spanish side on Wednesday and his former Manchester United boss has backed him to be a success in La Liga.

“Gary has many attributes that suggest he will be successful in management. His leadership skills are strong, he’s honest and he’s hard working,” Ferguson told Sky Sports News.

“He is the type of character who is not afraid of making big decisions, which is a vital skill when leading. I think he’ll do well and I wish him, and his brother Phil, good luck.”
