Gary Neville on Valencia in Class of ’92

Gary Neville reflects on his doomed spell at Valencia in the latest episode of the Class of ’92 documentary series.

Tracing the rise of Salford FC after the Class of ’92 bought the club, this episode sees Neville look back on his worst night in football – the 7-0 drubbing at the hands of Barcelona.

A compliment to Valencia fans

Neville remarks that he’d never seen fans as angry, and Valencia fans took umbrage with these comments when they emerged this week.

But when you watch the video, you see that Neville was actually paying them a compliment by highlighting their passion for their club.
