Valencia boss Marcelino poised to leave club

Valencia boss Marcelino Garcia Toral is prepared to quit the club should general manager Mateu Alemany leave, say reports in Spain.

Reputable Valencia-based journalist Hector Gomez reports that the Coach wishes to leave this club as he does not trust others in the sporting direction should Alemany leave.

Alemany was behind Marcelino’s appointment two summers ago and stuck by the Coach earlier in the season with the club languishing in the bottom half of the standings.

Marca say that Alemany is due to leave the Mestalla due to irreversible differences with the club’s president Peter Lim, in what will be viewed as a significant blow to Los Che.

Sports Tribune say that an emergency meeting has been scheduled on Monday to discuss the situation with Alemany’s exit the likely outcome.

Alemany has been the individual accredited for Valencia’s rise back to the top of Spanish football in the past two seasons – they have recorded successive top four finishes after back-to-back campaigns in which they ended the season 12th in La Liga.

Lim is said to have interfered in sporting matters and this has led to a professional fallout between the individuals, with Alemany considering his position untenable.
