Gary Neville is no stranger to using technology to tactically analyse football games. As we saw in his previous role on Monday Night Football for Sky Sports. Last week Neville had high-level cameras installed at the Valencia training ground. Now we bring you the news that that he is using technology to get his ideas across to his new Valencia players due to his lack of Spanish.
Neville has given an iPad to every player to help them follow the training sessions and different actions during games. Confirmed one of his assistants Miguel Angel Angulo. Angulo has also said that Neville is doing better than he expected and is already speaking a little Spanish with the players.
Neville is yet to experience that winning feeling as a manager. Having seen his side beaten 2-0 by Lyon in his first game. Then Valencia need a late own-goal to salvage a draw against Eibar. That result leaves Valencia 8th in the La Liga table with 21 points from their 15 games. Neville has stated his aim between now and the end of the season is to get Valencia into the top four places in the league and achieve Champions League qualification.
Angulo also said that Neville is looking that the players understand what he wants as quickly as possible and the games against Lyon and Eibar were really games of adaption. Though they have the long-term aim of top four, Neville and his coaching staff are not looking any further than the next game against Barakaldo as they look to seal their place in the last 16 of the Copa Del Rey.
