  • Valencia owner Peter Lim has been criticised over his handling of the club
  • The Spanish side have been on a poor run of form – winning just two in 15 games
  • Albert Celades was recently sacked as manager following a bad string of results
  • With criticism growing, Lim’s daughter, Kim, has reacted to frustrations online
  • In a now-deleted Insta post, Kim said her family could ‘do anything they wanted’ 

The daughter of controversial Valencia owner Peter Lim has launched an extraordinary attack on the club’s fans, claiming her family ‘can do anything we want’ with the Spanish side.

The Singaporean billionaire owner has been the target of criticism in recent months, with fans slamming his perceived chaotic handling of the club.

And now Instagram influencer Kim Lim has had enough as she hit back at the club’s supporters on social media on Thursday.

‘Here again. Some Valencia CF fans are scolding and cursing at my family and I,’ Kim posted on Instagram, in a post which was later deleted. ‘Don’t they get it? The club is ours and we can do anything we want with it and no one can say anything.’ 

Following a disastrous run of form, which has seen the team win just two games out of 15, Valencia find themselves in 10th and are well adrift of the Champions League places.

On Monday, the club decided to sack manager Albert Celades before replacing him with long-standing club servant Voro until the end of the season.

Sporting director Cesar Sanchez then announced his resignation shortly after Celades was dismissed, deepening the institutional crisis at one of Spain’s most prestigious clubs.

Celades is the sixth manager Valencia have sacked since the club was bought by Lim in 2014 while Sanchez, who was appointed in January, is the sixth sporting director to have left the role in the same period. 

Fans have long been at odds with Lim and the Valencia board after they sacked Marcelino Garcia Toral earlier in the campaign.

Marcelino, who guided the club to successive top-four finishes in LaLiga and won last season’s Copa del Rey title, fell out with the club’s heirarchy which led to his sacking.

With this, veteran defender Ezequiel Garay was also allowed to leave at the end of his contract, enraging fans further, with contradictory claims made by the club and player over whether he had been offered a new deal to stay.
