Executive president Salvo to leave Valencia imminently
The Caio ‘episode’ was the straw that broke the camel’s back with regards to the departures of the executive president and Rufete, who is already negotiating his settlement.
The signing of Rodrigo Caio, which ended up being frustrated on Monday evening, has ended up igniting the dynamite high up at Valencia. So much so that, after the most recent developments, both the club’s executive president Amadeo Salvo and its general manager Rufete will leave the club in the next few hours. There is the possibility that the president could hold a press conference to explain the reasons behind his departure on Wednesday.
The decision has been taken. The executive president had planned to leave in December. But given recent developments, with the frustrated signing of Rodrigo Caio, he has seen how his clout at the club has been reduced and he has decided to bring his decision forward. It will be made official in the next few hours. Salvo will take advantage of the exit of Rufete and his technical staff, who are already negotiating their settlements, to make the case for his departure. Meriton must now take action on the matter and restructure both Valencia’s sports organisation sector and the Academia GloVal which was run by Rufete and his team.
