Anil Murthy brought Peter Lim's management chest in his inaugural speech at the Valencia General Assembly. The president was very brief, without going into excessive detail about the project and denouncing the coercions received in recent months. Murthy emphasized that Valencia is "closer than ever to dying in the new stadium" and emphasized during his speech that "I was almost hit by a van screaming & # 39; Lim go home & # 39; and got phone calls and messages threatening my family".
Murthy attended the Valencia General Assembly after publishing in the press that ADU Mediterráneo is close to reaching an agreement with an investor group for the sale of the tertiary of the current Mestalla lot, one of the milestones the cooperative has to meet in order to their offer for these lands is binding. "Valencia is closer than ever to moving to the new stadium in the 2022-2023 season," added Murthy, who extended until March ADU's exclusivity.
“We received the mandatory offer to sell the old Mestalla. ADU has found an offer for the sale of the tertiary and we will renew our exclusive contract by March. One last boost is missing. Let's make sure this exciting project has no impact on staffing. ”he said in his speech.
The remainder of the president's initial message was a desire to acknowledge the administration of Peter Lim in Valencia, much questioned in recent months following the decision to dismiss Mateu Alemany. "" If Peter Lim contributed hundreds of millions in Valencia, it is an ambitious project. Thanks to him, we are where we want … We have played three times in the Champions in recent years. We earned a title after eleven years. We return to the eighth of the Champions after seven years. We broke sponsor records and are paying off loans. "
"Valencia is once again protagonist of the press, drive out the violent We are a non-smoking stadium, we have an app that European clubs use as a reference. We are progressing in the right direction. Our plan to make this club excellent is working. Many congratulated me for daring to expel the violent. Nothing will stop us and we will not waste time on controversy, ”he emphasized.
