Gary Neville's miserable run in charge of Valencia continued as a second half goal by former Manchester United team-mate Giuseppe Rossi condemned his side to a 1-0 defeat at local rivals Levante.

The Italy international pounced on slack defending by the visitors from a throw in to volley into the far corner midway through the second half to give struggling Levante a deserved lead, although they remain bottom of the Primera Division in spite of the win.

Valencia meanwhile suffered a third consecutive defeat in all competitions and missed out on the chance to move into the top half of the table.

Gary Neville's position as Valencia manager looks increasingly insecure after his struggling side slumped to yet another defeat.

Sunday's 1-0 loss at Real Betis left Valencia just four points clear of the relegation zone, extending the England coach's wait for his first Primera Division win.

Neville has been in charge at the Mestalla for more than two months and vowed to fight on, but admitted he is running out of time to turn things around.

I said before I came that I would be judged in five months. The obituaries have already been written - I have been judged in six weeks.

Our last two league matches were not performances that deserved two defeats, but the reality is that they are two defeats and I am aware of the consequences when you don't get good results.

What matters are results. We knew this would be about one or two moments and they have not gone our way. The line between defeat and victory is so fine.

I don't see myself managing Man United, insists Gary Neville

Gary Neville does not see himself managing Manchester United in the future and insists he's focused on succeeding at Valencia.

No, I don't see myself managing Manchester United at all.

I know what I want to do in my life, and that's not something that's in my mind.

From my point of view, this is important for me and a valuable experience. I'm aware I need to succeed.

Succeeding for me would be knowing these players have improved dramatically.

Results come and go, I know we're in a results-driven business, but I have never looked at football like that since I've finished playing. I did when I was a player.

As a part-owner, I think about moving forward in the next five, 10 years.
