Valencia CF fans protest over Peter Lim ownership

Valencia CF supporters have been protesting about Peter Lim's ownership of the club ahead of today's La Liga clash with Leganes.

Supporters gathered outside the Estadio Mestalla, with banners of 'Lim Go Home' and chanted for the club's owner to leave his role at the club with immediate effect.

Lim has endured a fractured relationship with supporters following his purchase of the club back in 2014, with a purchase of a controlling 70% stake of shares in the club.

Anger amongst fans has reached new levels in recent weeks, following the controversial sacking of former manager Marcelino, by Lim, despite the former Villarreal CF boss bringing the club back into the Champions League.

Marcelino confirmed that Lim had given him reassurances about his position, before going back on his promise less than 24 hours later, much to the ire of Valencia CF fans.

Marcelino's assistant Albert Celades has since stepped in as the new head coach, with fans also angry at his decision not to support Marcelino.
