The last week has been something convulsa in LaLiga, after the dismissal of Marcelino García Toral in Valencia. To few days to confront to the FC Barcelona in the Camp Nou, the group blanquinegro announced the goodbye of the that had been his trainer from 2017, without giving too many explanations of his exit. In a very expected press conference, the one of Villaviciosa gave his version on the subject.

And the true is that the Asturian expanded the surprise that in the last days has lodged in the capital of the Turia, since in addition to confirming that it feels "sad, incrédulo and powerless" for living this situation, ensured that it is convinced that the reasons of his goodbye derive of a victory, the one who broke a drought of more than a decade: "I Am sure, absolutely sure, we are safe, absolutely safe, that the detonante of this situation was the Glass of Rey".

"During the season, receive direct messages and through other people, that we had to refuse the Glass. The fans wanted to struggle by the Glass and try win it; the footballers wanted to struggle by the Glass and, the most important, had the conviction to win it; we, the technical body, wanted to struggle and win the Glass. It does not fit me any doubt that win the Glass was the detonante of this situation. Who went it to us to say!", it added.

The technician revealed that they did not give him details on this decision: "they said Us that it was a lower competition, secondary, and that it could put in risk attainments like the classification for the Champions, when all think that the Glass, the feeling lived by the players after the party against the Getafe was a main circumstance and determinant. We do not receive congratulation in Seville by part of the owner. It is more, when on 19 July I was to Singapore, congratulated me by the Champions and no by the Glass. You will be able to comprise my surprise".

"They said us that the Glass was a lower competition that could put in risk the classification for the Champions"

The ex of the Villarreal confirmed that this measure already took in his first campaign at the head of the team, and that then the suspicions were more justified by some inopportune injuries. In spite of everything, considers that it is impossible to deny to compete by the titles in an entity like the valencianista: "The idea was similar. Besides the Glass supposed us injuries in that first stage. But I consider me a winning trainer, want to have to my side winning footballers".

"Valencia, by his history, think that can go out to a party, to a competition and not competing? How they would accept my players say them that this do not compete it? Where we are? We are a technical body, any one of our decisions is valued by 25 people. The coherence, the work, the sincerity are permanent values. They are codes that have to respect day in day out and if we do not respect them, lose the credibility and will last very little", argued, recalcando that was impossible to give course backwards with the campaign begun.

Marcelino detailed that the distance went building along the summer, but underlined that it did not expect his dismissal. The satisfaction of the very done work and the affirmations that arrived him from up expressing confidence did not do him think in that it would arrive to this extreme, although there were some discrepancies in the sportive planning that were born of the change of course of the directive, that did not put in contact with the general director neither the technical body, that formed a united front.

Finally, the ex preparador 'che' cleared that the cessation does not have to see with the management of his agent neither with a pulse to the authority, separating the indictments that his representative had participated in several signings fallidos and that his recent statements played against of the club: "I am not the one who neither have to neither can neither want to pose pulses to anybody. Neither to which are above me neither to which are underneath. My only intention, my work since I arrived to Valencia, was to think for from the consensus arrive to conclusions and take decisions".

Marcelino remains with the reaction of the players

Treating to look for positive conclusions after this unpleasant situation, Marcelino stood out the support of his players: "His answer think that has been incredible. They have transmitted us you win to grow together, union, commitment, this staff wants to grow. It happened it very bad in this pre-season with all this series of situations. Many remember a stage convulsa previous, but am convinced that they go it to give everything for being still in the elite. They need the respect, that have it, and the support of the fans. I remain me with the affection and respect of the players and of those people that worked with us with upper rank and with inferior rank. All the other is secondary for me".
