Valencia general manager Mateu Alemany quits club

Valencia general manager Mateu Alemany has finally left the club after a period of flux where his role was defunct, as reported by Marca.

Alemany has left 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 earlier this campaign.

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 2018-19 season with the club languishing in the bottom half of the standings - before they finished fourth and won the Copa del Rey.

Last month, Catalan radio reported Barcelona were interested in adding Alemany to their sporting direction team.
