The chairman of Valencia F.C. has slammed "irresponsible attacks" from the Valencian Country parliament's political head as the club's organization faces another PR catastrophe.

Valencia laments in the fourteenth spot of

 standings with only 27 points from their 25 matches – only five points over the danger zone.
