Phil Neville is in a panic after his Instagram page was hacked by an unknown teenager.

On the day when the Valencia assistant should be concentrating on his and Gary Neville's first game in charge as a sibling-coaching-team, the breach in Phil's social media account is proving an unwanted distraction.

A charitable social-samaritan initially spotted the error, tweeting Neville to inform him that his page had been taken over by an unknown teenager.

Fortunately, it seems as though social media-savvy Neville was already full aware of the bizarre change to his account, although his was still at a lost as to how to rectify the changes to his feed.

Instead of the usual shots of Phil Neville barking Spanish instructions on Valencia's training ground, Neville's feed now includes a number of pictures of a pouting boy called Cristian Krimoo.

Phil Neville took charge of Valencia's 1-1 draw with Barcelona on Saturday as new manager and long-time brother, Gary, watched from the stands.

Gary Neville takes charge of his Valencia game against Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, and the former Manchester United has described the occasion as "the first day of the rest of my life."

Despite the attention on Neville's first game as manager, the 40-year-old has claimed he is not suffering from nerves.

“I have not felt any nerves since I arrived,” he said. “I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. As a player I had a little bit of nerves but I don’t as a coach; I’m just in work mode.”
