Gary Neville is only days into his new role as Head Coach of Spanish side Valencia but has already made his mark at the club’s training ground.
He has done so by overseeing the installation of high-angle cameras to help with his Valencia training sessions.
Gary Neville is a man who will no stone unturned to achieve a success. The high-angle cameras will enable Neville to watch his side’s training sessions back again, which will help the English tactician analyse every aspect of their game as he evaluates the players at his disposal.
In his previous role as a Sky Sports pundit, Neville would watch games with a birds-eye view. Whether that was as a co-commentator to Martin Tyler or in the studio on Monday Night Football.
Neville once said: ” A lot of people watch the game but they don’t see the game.’ The birds-eye camera on Sky Sports would give Neville an overview of the whole pitch rather than focusing on one area of the pitch, where the action was taking place.
With the installation of the cameras, Neville is aiming to the achieve a similar type of understanding. He will be taking charge of the training sessions but won’t be able to see everything that is going on. That’s where the cameras come in.
Neville was sat in the stands at the Mestalla Stadium on Saturday night as Valencia came from behind to earn a 1-1 with Barcelona. Neville would have pleased to see the fighting spirit of his new charges and will be looking to build on that result in his first game in charge against Lyon in the Champions League.
