- Voro. "I take Valencia for responsibility, but I don't have a magic wand"
On May 25, 2019, Valencianism celebrated that its centennial club had finally found the path that led to titles. The Cup was completing a transformation process with too many ups and downs and seemed to show that the owner, Peter Lim , had learned how Spanish football works. 401 days later, Valencia returns to fly through the air.
The dismissal of Albert Celades and the resignation of César Sánchez replaced the club in 2014, when Meriton Holding bought the majority stake. Since then, neither financial health nor winning sports project. Six coaches (Nuno, Neville, Ayestaran, Prandelli, Marcelino and Celades, in addition to Voro) and four sports directors (Rufete, García Pitarch, Alexanco, Pablo Longoria and César Sánchez) have passed through the bench, but the decisions have been made by SMS from Singapore .
This dismissal reflects again the failure of the bet for newbies, "officials" as President Murthy described them, almost as predictable as that of Gary Neville or Ayestaran , who succeeded each other on the bench in the 2015/16 academic year. As it happened to them, in the face of difficulty Celades has been seen alone and relieved by Voro, the eternal resource in troubled times.
This is another attempt at catharsis, the umpteenth change of model since the purchase of Lim, who has only once trusted an expert CEO: Mateu Alemany , on the recommendation of Javier Tebas . Since June 29, in the middle of an atypical competition in which a place in European competition is played, after an ERTE, with the squad hit by the pandemic and essential players for the project without renewal, Valencia remains in the hands of an interim coach, with no sports management and another executive, Joey Lim , who came from Singapore to supervise.
"Valencia is run by people of numbers, but soccer is a sport that needs passion, feeling," explained Cesare Prandelli on the day of his resignation, in December 2016. The Italian's words respectfully described the chaos and seemed to serve as a lesson . Changes in the structure and two years of maximum stability in six years that ended abruptly. The only official version was that the club had changed its philosophy and wanted "to promote young people trained at the Academy and give them the opportunity to compete at the highest levels." And there Celades fit for his work in the sub'21, because his experience was no other.
In front of a squad accustomed to living under the wing of Asturian character and football, only the classification for the knockout stages of the Champions League appears to the credit of the recently dismissed. Neither his style nor his neutral tone finished working in the locker room, which turned its back on him after the break, just when his authority and that of César Sánchez, the two "officials" who were only supposed to "began to dynamite" execute owner instructions ».
His criteria for the hiring of a central defender due to Garay's injury , or to renew the Argentinean who ended his contract yesterday, or Ferran Torres were not met . The club that was going to bet on the talent of its youth team has been unable to tie the most valuable player whose explosion has astonished Europe this year, and is going to be doomed to a minor transfer in the strange post-David market. The reason is not only economic, it is because the project lacks credibility.
In this environment, a trainer is just easy prey. And he made his own mistakes. Pointing to Diakhaby and his "ability" to commit penalties was disliked by the French dressing room clan, which points to the coaching staff as responsible for the leak that the young center-back wept upon seeing his mistakes on video. "The traitor? It is like the snake, it bites and hides », Kondogbia published in networks without clarifying who he was referring to. Guedes was angered by taking him out of the field and ended up kicking with locker room doors, and Maxi Gómez almost reached the hands of the coach. Without the squad on their side and with the resounding defeat against Villarreal, all they had to do was wait for Peter Lim to confirm the dismissal.
Voro, for the sixth time, will have to clear the rubble and push Valencia to the European goal. Who will be in charge of the reconstruction only the owner knows.
