Neville took over at the Mestalla in December but had a difficult start to life as a manager as he failed to win any of his first nine league matches at the helm, but he has now won three out of his last four games and guided the club to the last 16 of the Europa League.
But his future is coming up for review and it could be that the former Manchester United and England defender is moved on in the summer as the La Liga side eye a move for Middlesbrough’s Aitor Karanka.
Karanka has been in charge at the Riverside Stadium since November 2013 and narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League last season. The Spaniard has been backed heavily in the transfer market by owner Steve Gibson in allowing to bring such players as Stewart Downing and Jordan Rhodes to Teeside.
Boro are on course for another promotion push as they sit in 2nd place, just a point off leaders Burnley with a game in hand, but Karanka, 42, could be interested in taking over at Valencia if Boro gain promotion to the top-flight or not.
Two goals from Gaston Ramirez gave Karanka’s side a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday night and they travel to face struggling Rotherham United on Tuesday night.
Middlesbrough fans…What do you think of the news? Would Karanka leave if the Valencia job became available? How big a blow would it be to lose the boss? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
