Angry fans vandalised Valencia's Mestalla stadium with graffiti demanding president Juan Soler's exit.

"Soler must go" and "this shirt is not for mercenaries" were among the phrases that greeted staff and players at the Mestalla yesterday.

The graffiti arrives three days after Valencia's disappointing 3-0 home defeat to Athletic Bilbao, a performance which had coach Ronald Koeman admitting they had "bottomed out".
