Former Inter and Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo has stated he is almost glad to see Gary Neville fail as a manager following his time as a pundit.
Crespo took on a less spectacular managerial job, taking on struggling Serie B side Modena and was in an interview with Paolo di Canio.
Crespo believes Neville was too harsh on television – he was less than complimentary about Di Canio’s Sunderland side during his time as a pundit – but hopes his failings will illustrate the difficulty in swapping a microphone for the dug-out.
“To watch a game from the TV, it’s much different than from the bench,” Crespo explained to FOX Sports. “I’m almost happy for Gary Neville’s troubles at Valencia. I remember he was too harsh as a TV pundit!”
