Gary Neville: Valencia manager rejects question about future

Valencia manager Gary Neville says it is "ridiculous" to suggest the club's fans want him to leave.

Neville has yet to win a La Liga match in eight attempts and his team were booed by their own supporters as they lost 1-0 to Sporting Gijon on Sunday.

"You're asking me about my position," said Neville. "I find this question ridiculous. It's from you. Don't put this on to the fans."

Valencia have not won in La Liga since 8 November, a run of 11 games.

They passed up several chances against Sporting, with striker Alvaro Negredo missing three in the second half alone.

Valencia's next fixture is away to league leaders Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg on Wednesday.
