“Please be aware that by not attending Europa League home games, you will no longer be eligible to apply for domestic away games – this may also affect applications for cup finals.”

Gary Neville got his first defeat as a manager after his side went out of the Champions League following their 2-0 loss to French side Lyon, but he said he won’t be concerned with the Possibility of meeting Manchester United
“I’m not thinking about who we will draw. That is the last thing on my mind”, said the ex-England defender.
“I couldn’t care if we draw Manchester United or another team, I have to think about Sunday’s game against Eibar.”
“We are still close to the top four in the league. We will take the Europa League very seriously but it’s back to the league now”, he continued.
Gary Neville’s first game in charge of Valencia and first game as a manager ended in defeat, but the former United skipper has put that behind him and focused on winning his next match.
“We must take the defeat on chin and realise it is unacceptable to lose at Mestalla,” Neville told reporters afterwards. “It’s not something we can take lightly.”
Even though Neville said the right words, the fans need signs on the field of play if they’re to stand by him.
