Mario Kempes hits out at crisis club Valencia

Valencia hero Mario Kempes has hit out at the running of the club.

The Argentine was reacting to the sacking of coach Albert Celades.

He told El Larguero: "I am very worried. I was kicked out for saying the concerns I had and I think I could not go to work with these people anymore.

"And it is not because I want to return or not while these people are here. What worries me is that they do not do anything for Valencia.

"If you say that they have bought the club and you see the good intention, one says well, they don't know about football, but when the football is good, they are always looking for the three legs of the cat to destabilise the football and go back to the problems of the board.

"When the problem is the board, they try to mess with the sports so that it goes wrong. That is the problem of Valencia today."
