Gary Neville has insisted that he will not try to force the Manchester United style on Valencia and will try to leave his own imprint on the La Liga club.
The United great has been appointed as the manager of Los Che until the end of the season.
He will take charge of the club in the Champions League encounter against Lyon on Wednesday.
Neville said: “I’m incredibly excited to be here. I understand and respect the huge responsibility that I have been given.
“I understand through playing here many years ago the passion and intimidation of the fans here – and I intend to try to recreate that with the players again in the coming months.”
“I won’t be making any short decisions here. That is not the way I work.
“I will be making long term decisions.”
“I would not insult a club like Valencia by saying that I am going to come over and start playing like Manchester United.
“Every coach wants to play exciting attacking football. But we have to find a way to win and that will be my biggest challenge.”
“I will not be taking a dictatorial approach. If Phil was not here I would have wanted him to be here.
“We have not talked about new players. Talking about any players other than those that are here disgusts me.”
” They are wearing the shirt and they deserve a chance.”
“I’m aware of the demands. And if I fall below them I know I will not be here.”
