Gary Neville has admitted he would ‘run a mile’ if ever offered the chance to manage former club Manchester United.
The Old Trafford legend gave the candid response as he conducted a question and answer session on social media on Sunday evening.
Neville spent four months in his first, and so far only, managerial role at Valencia, whom he took charge of in December 2015.
A surprise appointment, Los Che won only 10 of 28 matches under Neville, and he was sacked with the club just six points clear of the relegation zone.
He returned to media duties with Sky Sports upon his dismissal, and remains in this position to this day.
And though Neville may return to football management in the future, he has made it clear he will NOT be taking charge of United.
During the Twitter Q&A session, one fan asked the ex-United full back: “If the opportunity ever arose would you take the United managerial role?”
Without hesitation, Neville replied: “That call isn’t coming and if it did I would run a mile.”
Neville also made a joke at his own expense, when told to name the weirdest thing he’s ever been asked to sign. He replied, quite simply: ‘Valencia contract.’
Man United beat Leicester 1-0 on Saturday to claim their second win of the Premier League season under Neville’s former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
