Former Valencia captain and sports director Amedeo Carboni cannot imagine his old club being relegated this season.
Carboni said: "We all regret this situation because I personally love this club which has given so much to me. We have to have confidence. Now it makes no sense to criticize, it's time to be united.
"Now I am outside the club, an amateur, and suffering like everyone else.
"When I was there, I wanted to do things that had not been done before, but now that I am out, I am not going to say anything."
Asked if he would like to return to the Mestalla, Carboni added: "I am a professional. Of course, I would love to work for Valencia again."
