5 managers whose reigns were shorter than Gary Neville's
Just 120 days.
That's how long it took for Valencia to end their experiment with Gary Neville as their head coach.
After taking on his first managerial job on a five-month contract on Dec 2 last year, the former Manchester United defender oversaw the La Liga side for 28 matches where he chalked up a record of 10 wins, seven draws and 11 losses.
With the threat of relegation looming over the Mestalla, club owner Peter Lim opted to part ways with Neville on Wednesday (March 30).
While Neville's foray into football management might seem brief, the 41-year-old former Sky Sports pundit enjoyed a considerable amount of time in the hotseat - especially compared to these guys:
When Torquay United were dropped out of the English league into the Conference, the Gulls turned to former boss Leroy Rosenior to replace Keith Curle.
But soon after the former striker put pen to paper, the club was taken over by a local consortium.
With the new owners wanting their own man in, Rosenior's reported 10 minutes as Torquay saw him pick up the unwanted record of having the shortest managerial reign in football.
JOSE ANTONIO CAMACHO
No list about managerial changes would be complete without something from Real Madrid.
In 1998, former Los Blancos left-back Jose Antonio Camacho was picked to replace Jupp Heynckes, who was sacked despite winning the Champions League.
But the combative Spaniard lasted just 22 days in the job and left after disagreements with the board.
While Camacho would return to the Bernabeu years later in 2004, he only lasted 93 days longer after a disastrous spell of results.
LUIGI DEL NERI
Being sacked as a manager without taking charge of a single game must feel pretty rotten, but going through that process twice?
That's something veteran Italian coach Luigi del Neri has experienced during his long career in management.
After guiding Ternana to Serie B with consecutive promotions, del Neri earned a moved to Empoli in 1998 before a difference in opinion over tactics saw him sacked in August that year without managing a single game.
Six years later, he must have felt a sense a deja vu when he was hired by Porto to replace Chelsea-bound Jose Mourinho in 2004.
Just over two months later, the Italian was out of a job due to "personal reasons".
He might have been one of English football's greatest managers for propelling Nottingham Forest to two European Cup triumphs, but Brian Clough's rise in the 1970s seems all the more incredible after his spectacular failure at Leeds United before his arrival at the City Ground.
Even as he arrived at Elland Road to take over from Don Revie in 1974, the legendary manager was up against it with his dressing room against him.
Reason: The negative comments he had made about them and the club at his previous job with Derby County.
After a tumultuous 44 days, Clough was ousted from his post - paving his way to Forest.
Clough's Leeds tenure later inspired the film The Damned United.
A legend with Auxerre after managing the French club for more than 40 years, Guy Roux was looking for one last hurrah in June 2007 when he came out of retirement to take charge of Lens.
It didn't go so well for the man who developed talents like Eric Cantona, Philippe Mexes and Laurent Blanc.
While he won one match in the now-defunct Intertoto Cup, Roux took charge of the four Ligue 1 matches without a win before calling it quits again.
