Gary Neville's appointment as Valencia coach in December stunned the world of football but his sacking Wednesday was easier to predict, the only surprise being that it did not come sooner.The calls for Neville's dismissal began on Feb. 3 after a 7-0 Copa del Rey drubbing at Barcelona and grew louder following a 1-0 defeat at Real Betis that left Valencia four points above the relegation zone.The good work was undone, though, by a late collapse against Athletic Bilbao and a miserable run of three straight La Liga defeats including a 1-0 reverse against bottom club Levante that the local media described as "grotesque".Neville's time as coach seemed to be coming to an end at that point.
