News from Spain: Valencia Chairman blames Marcelino and Alemany for Ferran Torres exit

The audio files being leaked out of Valencia have caused more distrust and outrage amongst the fans of Los Che towards Chairman Anil Murthy.

Installed by the controversial Meriton Holdings regime, which is headed by Gary Nevilles business partner Peter Lim, Murthy is coming under increasing pressure after a number of compromising conversations have been released.

Valencian paper Superdeporte have been releasing the clips, in which Murthy has insulted the cities of Liverpool and Newcastle, Lim and been caught saying he would ruin Carlos Soler and Jose Gayas reputations.

The latest instalment focuses on the transfer dealings. Perhaps the headline statement referred to Ferran Torres.

Why did Ferran Torres leave? Because of Marcelino and Mateu [Alemany].

The two culprits in Murthys eyes were manager and Sporting Director the summer before Torres left for just 25m to Manchester City, but left in 2019.

Murthy also criticised Alemanys management on the whole.

Nobody speaks about Jorge Saenz? Do you know who he is? We bought 50% [of his rights], two million. Manu Vallejo, Sobrino, whats that one called Jason. But this doesnt come out in the press because he knows how to manage them.

At the end of it I am the one who has to pay the salaries. I am here, I dont move. I am at Mestalla when the people are screaming. Its easy to spend the money of others and forget about the lost money.

Manu Vallejo is on loan at Alaves, but is still owned by Valencia and unlikely to be thrilled with Murthys attitude. It should be mentioned that Valencia and Murthy have released communications denying the validity of these audios.

Alemany has since taken Torres to Barcelona, where he has been working as a Sporting Director for just over a year. Without knowing the reasons that Torres left, its worth questioning the validity of Murthys comments, given neither were at the club when Torres left.
