Hedwiges Maduro risks his future at Valencia by railing against management over their decision to block him from competing in this year's Beijing Olympics.

The Holland international midfielder said: "If the club makes things difficult, then there may be a nasty situation. In that case I'll be sitting between two fires and actually I am powerless.

"Look, Valencia pays my salary. But on the other hand, to participate in the Olympic Games is a dream. I hope that the club takes into account what is best for the player."
