Reports suggest Gary Neville is set to be announced as the new manager of Delhi Dynamos

If true this would be a sensational coup for Indian football.

We’re highly dubious about this until anything is confirmed, but there are growing rumours that Gary Neville may be ready to try his hand at subcontinental football for his next managerial move.

The revered Sky Sports pundit and former Manchester United defender was sacked by La Liga side Valencia after only four months in charge in his brave first move into professional coaching.

But if rumours are to be believed, his next job could be even more daring and far-fetched. Reports are emerging from India that he is due to be unveiled as the new manager of Delhi Dynamos.

That’s right – claims suggest that the Indian Super League franchise, who only played their first games in 2014, have managed one of the most sensational coups in world football and nabbed Neville.

The Indian side are not short of cash, and are owned and operated by Delhi-based DEN Networks. But it would still be a surprising next move for Neville’s fledgling managerial career.
