Pressure increases on Gary Neville

Barca hit seven past Valencia

Gary Neville is under increasing pressure after watching his side slaughtered 7-0 by a rampant Barcelona in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final at the Nou Camp.

Luis Suarez scored four and Lionel Messi grabbed a hat-trick as the Catalan side all-but booked their place in the final while cranking up the heat on Neville.

Shkodran Mustafi was dismissed for the visitors for an intentional handball in the first period but Los Che were already three down at that stage.

Valencia have failed to win a single La Liga match since Neville was installed in December and with the Englishman having overseen their exit from the Champions League group stages on home turf in his first game in charge, it was their run in the Spanish cup which was giving him some breathing space.

However, after the humiliation by the European champions, Neville needs a win – and fast – in the league if the calls for him to be removed from his first job in management are not to become common currency around the Mestalla.
