Barcelona: Valencia boss Gary Neville admitted his side’s 0-7 Copa del Rey semi-final mauling at the hands of Barcelona on Wednesday was one of his worst nights in football, but refused to quit.

Luis Suarez scored four and Lionel Messi added a hat-trick in what Valencia sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch described as one of the worst results in the club’s history.

Neville is yet to win in eight La Liga ties since turning manager in December.

"This was one of my most painful days in football. They happen, I had some as a player, now as a manager, but when you give the ball away close to your own goal thrice in first 15 minutes, you get punished," said the former Man Utd star.
