Valencia CFTOWe analyze how the team and the club stay after Marcelino's dismissal
ORn month of season and Valencia is already a polvorn. The unexpected dismissal of Marcellin stirs the foundations of a club prone to self-destruction. That is how the Asturian technician arrived on May 11, 2017 and that is how the club is now leaving, on September 11, 2019. In the midst of all that, the construction of a champion team that overcame the difficulties and returned to the Valencia at the top. Now, Celades inherits a bench warmer than ever and with a dark and uncertain future. Valencianists wonder: and now what?
For starters, Valencia will live a hostile climate in Mestalla in the coming weeks. The social fracture between fans and managers is total. The relationship was already tense but the team's successes and unconditional support for Marcellin softened the confrontation. Now, with the Spaniard away from Valencia, protests and disagreements from the stands aim to be a constant in the home team matches. Situation that already occurred in the past.
A costume touched
The staff's support for Marcellin was total. Even, captain and strong man in that dressing room, I served as spokesman minutes after knowing the news with a hard message and a clear message to Peter Lim and the acting president Anil Murthy.
Mster, I wish you the best. I am sure that you will go well wherever you go and let you work. Thank you for making the club bigger and better soccer player.pic.twitter.com/8W2y2fGGzv

And it is that with this technician, many players have reached the peak of their career. Many have raised their first title with that Copa del Rey won at Bara last season. Many others have been international with their selections also for the first time during Marcellin's stage. Closed a winter market that was especially moved in Valencia, it remains to be known if in the next window of winter signings, some of those players who remained in the club thanks to the Asturian technician, decide to change airs.
A budding technician and a complicated calendar
Celades I will have to get the batteries right soon. His only experience as a first coach was in the lower categories of the national team. Valencia is its premiere at club level as the visible head of a project. The doubts are obvious. And your first days will not be easy at all. Among other things, because Valencia is under its command in theCamp Noufor, a few days later, travel toStamford bridge, where Chelsea and its premiere in Champions awaits.
The new situation of Mateo Alemany
The sports director was Marcelino's great supporter. The estrangement with Peter Lim is evident and his future seemed to hang by a thread just a few weeks ago. Seen as seen, Alemany is now an executive who does not execute, a position designed to make sports decisions that are now not asked for opinion. Totally on the sidelines, and with a contract until the end of the season, the Mallorqun is retained by a clause that will force him to pay a large amount if he wants to slam the door.
The coming months are agitated, with an unfavorable climate to build a solid project and the strong feeling that Valencia has a turbulent and difficult season to handle. The sporting future returns to paint black and the challenge for Celades is great. Mestalla is again a boiler about to explode.
