Former Valencia sporting director Fernando Gomez says Albert Celades should manage the club to start next season.
Celades replaced Marcelino as manager of Valencia just three games into the 2019/20 season.
Since taking over from Marcelino last September, Celades has endured an indifferent time at the Mestalla
Highlights include a win over Barcelona and qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Champions League.
With the campaign currently suspended due to the coronavirus, Los Che are only four points off fourth-placed Real Sociedad.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Tribalfootball, Fernando believes Celades should get a chance to start next season at the helm.
"Unfortunately, the season is not over yet. The final classification will tell us if it's turned out good or bad, depending on the goals achieved," Fernando said.
"Right now, Celades' VCF had qualified to play the round of the last 16 of the Champions League, they went far in Copa del Rey, this season it was played in a different format than last, which makes it more difficult to reach the semifinals, and in La Liga they are not far from the top four, with many matches to play.
"As for the squad, the team is still difficult to beat, but they concede too many goals, something that must be improved, and finally, to point out that they have achieved all this with a very high number of injured and unavailable players in every game. We will have to wait and see.
"Celades arrived with the season underway, in a very tense atmosphere at the club, and with many fans against him. For the time being, I think he should start next season, and then his continuity will depend on the team's progress, which hopefully will be good."
