Since he has stepped into the managerial domain, fans are now excited that he may return to Man U.
It is a big opportunity which Gary will relish doing and everyone is watching closely to see how he handles Valencia.
“Valencia is a hot-bed of football. They take it seriously and are very passionate.
“The Mestalla is a great throw-back stadium, a tight ground with sheer sides and if he is under pressure he will certainly feel it.
“But if he can go on a run the momentum will build and the fans can really carry the team.” says Rio Ferdinand.
It is to be seen how well Gary will manage Valencia with Phil being the his assistant, given that former top players of Man U are watching him closely.
