Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville is to return to his role as a football analyst after Euro 2016.

England's assistant manager left Sky Sports in December 2015, to the surprise of many to become the Valencia manager. He was sacked in March.

Neville revolutionised the way football is analysed, and along with Jamie Carragher led Sky's Monday Night Football coverage. According to the Daily Mail, Neville will return to his slot on the show with the former Liverpool defender.

Such was Neville's standing in Sky, the company gave the 41-year-old an open invitation to return to the station, if his spell at Valencia didn't work out.

Currently based in France, Neville remains England's assistant manager, working with Roy Hodgson's team on a part-time basis. That is not expected to change, if he returns to media work.

The spell at Valencia, was mixed at best for Neville. He won ten of his 28 games in charge at the Mestalla club.
