The Valencia of Lim – is it going in the right direction?

For those of you who have followed us on Twitter you might have witnessed that we at the Chescandinavia board pretty much represent the whole specter of viewpoints when it comes to Valencia, it’s players, Nuno and not least Jorge Mendes. This triggered the idea to ask some questions to our board members to see if we couldn’t together well describe the current situation at the club. – Firstly,what to do you think about the the change in management over summer, with many key people such as Salvo, Rufete and Ayala leaving? Daniel I think it was inevitable. Any new owner with …

Back to the future

The target is reached. Champions League. The great and crucial goal of the new Valencia CF so important both for economical room and for making top class players wanting to come. And stay. But now what? After many turbulent years many expected, me included, a less nerve-wrecking silly season this summer. The agonic times are gone when it was inevitable that our best players would leave just to keep the ship floating, while what came in were scraps found under the rich clubs’ table. The circus of the sale of the club itself was over, and the road ahead towards glory seemed long, …

Team News ahead of Rayo clash It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t convincing, but Valencia did come away with a 3-1 victory over Monaco in this season’s first official match. Ruben Vezo stepped into the defense and except on one occasion, he really proved he will be no pushover. As Valencia prepare for their league debut, it is without three important players, all suspended as a result of the hard fought victory at Almeria which secured fourth place last season. Gayá, Feghouli and Parejo will all sit this one out, giving room for forced rotations from Nuno, who should have …

Zakaria Bakkali

  Valencia’s newly aquired 19-year-old Belgian has been in the spotlight for off-the-field stuff more than his actual football over the last year, after a failed transfer to Atlético Madrid last summer turned into a stand-off between Zakaria and his then club, PSV. He was pretty much banished from the first team after refusing to agree to a new deal, despite easily being talented enough that the Dutch side would benefit from having him there. One thing led to another, and with his agent being Jorge Mendes, it won’t have been surprising to many that once free-agency came, Valencia was to …

Amadeo Salvo announced his exit as the executive president: Out of respect for all, but especially VCF & fans, I must say that I Monday told Lay Hoon that I want to leave Despite the constantly shaking microphone, Salvo handled the presser as one would expect, which he started by announcing his father’s cancer as a family reason & concluded by ensuring that VCF still are in good hands. VCF do not exist without Valencianistas. Several key employees in the GloVal project will follow the ex-president out of VCF: – Board-member Manuel Peris, who earlier …
