The mayor of Valencia, Joan Ribó, has shown this Wednesday its support for the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, and in reference to the Meriton company, Valencia CF’s largest shareholder, has stated that “it is already good not to respect neither the fans, nor the city, nor to the Generalitat “.
This was stated a day after the meeting held between the president of Valencia, Anil Murthy, and Puig, in which the club representative did not present any plan to resume the Mestalla works and after which Puig noted that Meriton’s credibility “is at a low level”, to which this Wednesday Murthy replied with a statement in which he considered “irresponsible” the Puig’s words.
“The laws must be followed by Meriton and anyone“he added Ribó, who agreed both in their demonstrations and in their support for Puig with the vice mayor of the city, Sandra Gomez, which had been pronounced in the same terms.
Ribó added that “by active and passive” they had told the club that the institutions were not willing to extend the Strategic Territorial Action (ATE) that ends on May 15, if from Valencia there was no clear project to finish the works of the new stadium of the club, paralyzed for twelve years.
“We are not willing to expand it because there is no clear option, nor tangible aspects on the part of the club,” added Ribó, who added that the club must know that its position on this matter “is serious.”
