When the team faced the threat of relegation after 35 years, Valencia fans started campaigning for the resignation of Peter Lim.
Valencia suffered a 0-2 defeat to Sevilla in the 29th round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season held at Mestaya Stadium in Valencia, Spain on the 17th at 4:00 am (Korean time). Valencia are in 18th place with 27 points.
Valencia, who sacked coach Gennaro Gattuso and appointed coach Ruben Baraja, needed a win against Sevilla. All key resources such as Edinson Cavani, Jose Gaya, and Yunus Musa were sent, but they showed disappointing performance. In the 10th minute of the second half, Loic Baade conceded a goal and was drawn 0-1. In the 30th minute of the second half, Suso Fernandez conceded another goal, widening the gap. To make matters worse, Elix Moriba was sent off in the 39th minute of the second half and was outnumbered.
In the end, Valencia lost 0-2. No win with 1 draw and 3 losses in 4 league games. Even if the range is increased to 6 games, there is only one win. Meanwhile, Valencia remains in the relegation zone. The expected effect amid the resignation of manager Gattuso is not being seen. Baraja’s tactical abilities are being questioned. Meanwhile, Valencia are falling deeper and deeper into the swamp of relegation.
Spain’s ‘Marca’ said, “Valencia is collapsing, but there is a culprit. It is Peter Lim, the owner.” Owner Peter Lim took over Valencia in 2014, but he managed the club on his own and caused confusion in the team. He sent out the team’s prospects and key players, including Lee Kang-in. The director also changed according to his taste. When the team was formed without a clear direction and a manager was appointed, the team collapsed. It is also here that they were driven to the brink of relegation after 35 years of promotion in the 1987-88 season. 메이저놀이터
‘Marca’ said, “Peter Lim, the owner of Valencia, canceled the Valencia sports project. Coach Gattuso’s reputation as a player blinded him, and Gattuso sank. There was a situation where even Dinson Cavani protested,” he said, highlighting the chaotic state of Valencia.
He added, “Outside the stadium, more than 2,000 fans gathered to protest against Valencia’s owner Peter Lim and the Valencia board, who were leading Valencia’s relegation. The situation was so great that the police clashed.” The fury of the Valencia fans reached its peak. They are protesting with signs reading “LIM GO HOME”. They want to put an end to the tyranny of owner Peter Lim, which has been going on since the early and mid-2010s.
Valencia will face Elche in the next round. Elche is the lowest. If they lose against Elche, Valencia will really be in danger of relegation. Valencia and Peter Lim, who are in crisis, need to watch the next move.
