Over 1,000 fans stage 'wake' against Lim Valencia ownership

Over 1,000 Valencia fans have gathered in Mestalla calling for Peter Lim to leave the club.

Local supporters are enraged seeing Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin offloaded this week to Villarreal, only days after the sale of Ferran Torres to Manchester City.

The demonstration was held at the Plaza de la Afición, on the outskirts of Mestalla, where they staged a 'wake' for the death of the club under Lim - which included a minute's silence.

The fans dressed in Valencia CF shirts, waved flags and scarves and sang chants against the Meriton Holding leaders. Chants such as "Mestalla awakens this is a war", "Anil (Murthy), scoundrel, out of Mestalla" or "Peter go now" were heard.
