Neville will not quit Valencia


?Gary Neville has vowed not to quit Valencia despite the club in danger of being dragged into a relegation battle.

Valencia are without a win in the league since Neville took charge in December and their poor run has seen them drop to 14th in the La Liga table, just four points clear of the drop zone, while they were beaten 7-0 by Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final.

Supporters have called for Neville to stand down but the former Manchester United defender believes the team can turn things around and he is determined to make the fans happy.

I'm not thinking about relegation from La Liga. I am desperate to turn things around," Neville told reporters.

"This is my 30th press conference or so since taking charge of Valencia and I always get asked the same questions. The fans don't want words, though. All we can do is start winning games. I only want to focus on football.

"It can be a cruel sport. Sometimes you don't deserve anything from a game, but still win. This has not been happening for us, though. We deserved to win in recent games, but it didn't happen. But you know things will turn around when you play well.

"I am determined to give the fans what they want. They care a lot about this club and make sacrifices for Valencia. We want to make them happy."
