Valencia general manager Mateu Alemany to remain

Valencia general manager Mateu Alemany will stay at the club following crisis talks with club owner Peter Lim, according to reports.

Reputable Spanish journalist Rubén Uría reports that Alemany will remain in his role for the forthcoming season after concerns about the power balance at the club were addressed.

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 previously considering his position untenable before a change of heart.

Boss Marcelino Garcia Toral is said to be a close personal friend of Alemany and has himself questioned his own future at the Copa del Rey winners.

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.
