Phil Neville’s Spanish tweet goes horribly, horribly (but hilariously) wrong

Lost in translation...

Ben Kenyon

When you’re the new assistant boss of a Spanish football club, the first thing you should do is get to grips with the lingo.

New Valencia assistant boss Phil Neville tried…but failed quite spectacularly.

He wanted to let his Twitter followers know he’d been out for a run on the beach…but the Lancastrian’s Spanish wasn’t quite up to scratch.

What he tweeted got a little lost in translation (we mean a lot).


Unfortunately for Neville “corrida” can mean both “run” and, well, an altogether more vigorous form of exercise.

Let’s hope he keeps his “morning run” to himself in future.
