According to manager Marcelino, poor communication might be the heart of the current crisis at the Spanish La Liga club.

Spanish La Liga side Valencia is facing a crisis ahead of the 2019-2020 season.

Owner Peter Lim has had a falling out with general manager Mateu Alemany.

And this is affecting the way the board of directors is communicating with manager Marcelino.

“I have the feeling that communication and conversations were inadequate, which gave rise to different opinions,” he told Marca.

“Surely a long and thoughtful conversation between two intelligent people can bring them together to form a successful project.”

Marcelino commented: “It’s obvious that it’s been a very difficult week.”

“It was unexpected and surprising. Because I consider myself to be a thoughtful person, I haven’t been able to find any explanation.”

“Valencia’s players have put themselves forward as middlemen in discussions, offering to mediate,” he said.

“They’ve joined because they’re great professionals and great people who have all the support of the coaching staff.”

“The purpose was to find a solution and achieve a project with favorable results,” the boss concluded.
