TWEETS: Phil Neville was the brunt of the joke as brother Gary takes control at Valencia
Laughing together now.
The football world is still in shock after Gary Neville has been named as Valencia manager until the end of the season.
It has been an eventful week at the Mestalla after Phil Neville - alongside fellow coach Voro - was named as joint caretaker coach following the resignation of manager Nuno Espírito Santo at the weekend.
While Phil has carved out an impressive career for himself as a coach in Spain, brother Gary will be taking up the hotseat at the Spanish club until the end of the season.
As always, Twitter was quick to jump on the sibling rivalry bandwagon. Good luck to both lads and especially Phil, he has Barcelona at the weekend and has to call his brother 'gaffer' now.
Pretty sure Phil Neville doesn't have required coaching badges to be Valencia head coach, unlike his brother.
