A shock in Spain ... a big club selling 9 players for less than 70 million euros
Valencia coach Javi Garcia, a few months after assuming the job, revealed his intention to resign due to the suffocating financial crisis that the team is going through, and the club management’s failure to fulfill its promise of the contracts that the coach needs, as it was remarkable that Valencia did not make any contract in the summer Mercato.
The British newspaper "The Sun" said that the Spaniards, especially the Valencia fans, were shocked that the club sold 9 players in the summer transfers for less than 70 million euros, which was a great disappointment to the team’s fans, due to the squandering of most of its stars at very low prices.
The most prominent departures were striker Rodrygo to Leeds for 30 million euros, Ferran Torres to Man City for 23 million euros, and Francis Coquelin to Villarreal for 6.5 million euros.
Danny Parejo, Alex Sentel and Alex Carbonell were allowed to leave for free, as well as squandering other players for very small amounts, as the total value of the contracts did not exceed 70 million euros.
Since the arrival of the Singaporean owner Peter Lim to the club, he has been from crisis to crisis.
With the effects of the Corona virus on the club's income, the crisis increased even more, as last season 3 coaches left the club.
The club’s fans feel great anger at the administration’s policy in dealing with players, in the transfer market and with coaches, saying that the focus is more on saving expenses without regard to the club’s value in Spanish and European football.
