“Valencia and Adil Rami, along with his lawyers, have held a meeting this morning in relation to disciplinary proceedings opened by the club against the player last week,” began Valencia’s official statement released today.

“After listening to the player, who has expressed regret for the statements made against the Coach and his teammates, the club has taken into account the mitigating factors and have decided to sanction, in accordance with internal regulations, with a week of suspension of employment and payment of the player.
