Gary Neville reveals how he wound up former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo

Gary Neville has revealed how he infuriated old Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo when the pair went head-to-head during the former right-back’s ill-fated spell in charge of Valencia. 

Gary Neville reveals how he wound up former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo

United legend Neville took charge of La Liga side Valencia back in December 2015 but was sacked just a few months later after a string of bad results, culminating in a 7-0 defeat to Barcelona. 

He did manage to pick up a hard-fought draw against Real Madrid at the Mestalla, though says it owed much to his underhand tactics of not cutting the grass – something that Ronaldo did not appreciate whatsoever.

Asked if he felt proud to have managed against Real Madrid despite his time at Valencia being difficult, Neville told Sky Sports: ‘No. I never think of it, I never think of anything I’ve done and felt proud about it. 

‘Actually what I remember about that game is that obviously we were struggling in the league, and Real Madrid was absolutely outstanding. 

They had Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and all the other sort of great players. ‘And we left the grass really long on the pitch so that the ball wouldn’t travel very quickly, and we didn’t water it either. 

‘And I remember Cristiano coming over to me – honestly, this is a true story – he came over to me before the game and he said, “Gaz! Gaz! A disgrace! It’s a disgrace! Cut the pitch! Cut the pitch!”
