They’ve got birds in their heads - Valencia’s Peter Lim to fans

Sat 08 May 2021 | 11:25

Valencia’s shareholder Peter Lim sent a message to the club supporters that are not satisfied with his stewardship during an interview with the Financial Times, according to Marca.

A demonstration by a march will happen this Saturday and it ends at Mestalla.

They’re trying to make sure we don’t sell the club to anyone other than them,”

Peter Lim

said.

“These people argue, ‘we’re Valencianos, we know the club’, but with the Valencianos they went bankrupt, right? I don’t want to belittle the club, it’s 102 years old. They’ve never won the Champions League and want to win it at all costs. They’ve got birds in their heads.”

According to

Forbes

, Lim is among the richest people in Singapore and has a fortune of $2.7b. The 67-year-old stated that

Valencia

are one of his many businesses, but rejected the speculations of him using the club to profit in other ways.

He is not willing to sell the club and believes Valencia’s value is more than the €100m he paid in 2014, notwithstanding the problems they are facing during his stewardship, with the new Mestalla construction and mediocre sporting performance. Javi Garcia was also dismissed and relieved of his responsibilities as a coach this week.
