Valencia CFTOGo from 72 to 173 in a year according to the study of CIES referring to all European clubs
One year ago, Valencia had a renewed staff and above all young people for a project, Marcelino's, in which he only had to compete in the League and in Copa del Rey. According tothe CIES reportObservatory (study of 360 teams of all European Lifgas),the staff of Valencia was 72 yo younger than all those who compete in leagues of the Old Continentat the start of the 2017-18 campaign. In fact it was the youngest Spanish team.
This seasonthe Valencia has opted to inject a bit more veteranto itsteam to gain experience, as the competitive level of the season goes up. The Champions League was added to the League and the Cup. A physical but above all mental pressure. And for this, one of the pillars of the project was to search, without launching for very old players, a series of pieces that would contribute that level to know how to take the moments of downgrade of a season.
Therefore, the Valenciathe average age of its workforce has increased in a year. And that has had its comparative effect with the campaign.Once the annual report was published, Valencia has gone from being the 72 youngest in Europe to 173 (26.16 on average) in the present. The Real Sociedad is the youngest of LaLiga (25,38).
