Neville moved to Valencia.
Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers revealed he was surprised Gary Neville accepted the managerial position at La Liga side Valencia and heaped praise on the Manchester United legend for taking the challenge.
"I was surprised but he has been so brave in doing in it," he told Sky Sports' Goal on Sunday.
"To jump straight out of the studio, and I know he works with England, but being the No.1 is totally different.
"Fair play to him to go over to another country where communication isn't easy. The experiences he will gain, whatever he does next, he will be better for it."
