Valencia general manager Mateu Alemany leaving club

Valencia general manager Mateu Alemany is negotiating his exit from the club, as confirmed by a report in Cadena Ser.

Alemany is due to leave the Mestalla due to irreversible differences with the club’s president Peter Lim and it comes in the wake of Marcelino Garcia Toral’s dismissal as Coach.

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.

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.

Valencia lost 5-2 at Barcelona on Saturday in the first game after the dismissal of Marcelino, with Albert Celades the new man at the helm.
