Gary Neville wants Valencia to vary their style based on opponent

I do want the Mestalla to be a horrible place for opposition to play.” Neville says he doesn’t want his side either to be one that counter-attacks or one that likes having the ball all the time, but a blend, depending on who they are facing and the scenario.
