Valencia sack manager Marcelino after winning the Copa del Rey last season

Valencia sack manager Marcelino after winning the Copa del Rey last season

Valencia followed up that announcement with the confirmation former Spain Under-21 head coach and ex-Real Madrid assistant Celades had been appointed.

However, amid behind the scenes tension, a club statement on Wednesday confirmed: "Valencia told Marcelino Garcia Toral on Wednesday that he is no longer first team coach".

Valencia have taken four points from three games this term but it was reported in Spain that Lim called club president Anil Murthy for an emergency meeting in Singapore on Wednesday after deciding to sack Marcelino. "The new coach will direct his first training session this afternoon".

"The club would like to thank him for his work and dedication during his time with our club and wish him the greatest success for the future".

A breakdown in relationship with owner Peter Lim has led to Marcelino's inevitable sacking at Valencia.

The Spanish were back to their best last season, challenging at the top of La Liga for a large part of the season and ultimately securing themselves Champions League football.

At present it appears that Lim's decision does not impact on sporting director Mateu Alemany and at present numerous Valencia CF players are supposed to be in a state of shock regarding Lim's decision.

Marcelino's sacking comes at a vital time for Valencia, who are set to visit Barcelona this weekend following the conclusion of the global break.
