Gary Neville effigies burned at Valencia firework festival

Every March, the Spanish city of Valencia celebrates Las Falles, a huge, weeklong festival of fire that the natives observe in droves while eating, drinking, letting off fireworks and by burning effigies of less-than-popular celebrities and politicians.

Among the famous faces to be offered to the elements this year were Spanish president Mariano Rajoy and Pope Francis, though it was the local football team, perhaps unsurprisingly, that contributed most of the fodder.

Having overseen a truly miserable period in Valencia's recent history, beleaguered head coach Gary Neville was front and centre of the bonfire, though club owner Peter Lim, chairwoman Lay Hoon Chan and even Neville's predecessor Nuno were all metaphorically burned to a cinder too.

Indeed, according to AS, several ninots (small traditional carved wood figurines) of Neville and the rest of the Valencia hierarchy all went up in flames during the festivities.

Just when poor old Nev thought it couldn't get any worse!
