Defeat against Athletic and the dismissal of Celades
Controversial statements by Kim Lim. Valencia fans have exploded against the management of the board. Kim Lim’s message is the last straw. The inopportune statements by Lim’s daughter join the disastrous result obtained against Athletic Bilbao, the classification in LaLiga and the dismissal of coach Albert Celades.
Peter Lim is the majority shareholder of Valencia F.C. since 2014 by acquiring 70% of the shares. Valencian fans do not agree with the club’s management and demand that Lim and his management team leave the club. It is unknown what the president thinks about it, however, we know the opinion of his daughter, who has always been very critical of the club.
Urgent need to play in Europe
Valencia’s return to LaLiga is being abrupt. It currently occupies 10th place in the standings and is six points behind the European positions. If the matches that remain for the end of the championship are not as expected and Valencia does not qualify even for the Europa League, the Valencian team may go into crisis.
Valencia has the urgent need to qualify even for the Europa League, since this would mean millionaire income for the club. If not, financial losses may force the club to sell some of its most valuable players.
