Hello & welcome to - Valencia: The road to glory

This story will be about Valencia`s road to glory.

I will post monthly reports of the save, and try to make things interesting.

I will simulate the game to 30 November 2015, the day after Nuno Espirito Santo resigned as Valencia coach, and take charge of the club.

The main goal will be to win Liga BBVA, and of course the UEFA Champions League.

When it comes to transfers, I will only buy players under the age of 25, and I can only sign players over 25 on a free transfer.

The history of the the club:

Los Ches have a successful history. They have over twenty competition wins, the last one in 2008 when they won Copa del Rey. They have 7 years without a trophy, i`m planning to change that.


I will try to post updates in the weekends.

I cant wait to start this save.
Valencia does look like a good save, I always play with them on FIFA, best of luck!

Nuno resigns as Valencia Manager

Nuno Espirito Santo has left his role as manager of Valencia after their Liga BBVA match against Sevilla. Nuno lead Valencia back into the Champions League with a fourth-place finish last season.
Nuno said: "I want to thank all the players who I have managed at the club for their work. I also want to thank [club owner] Peter Lim, who is - and will continue to be - a friend of mine, and the fans of Valencia CF.

Reports in Spain suggest that Frank Rijkaard and Michael Laudrup are among the early contenders to succeed him.

The only thing that is certain is that the fans are anxiously waiting on who will be the new manager

Valencia will hold a press conference

Valencia has called in to a press conference. It is the club owner, Peter Lim who has called in the press conference.

The media speculates that the club will present a new first team manager, after Nuno Espirito Santo left his position as manager of Valencia just days ago.

Valencia has hired a new manager
Valencia has hired Jose Correira as their new manager, the football world are in shock. Who is this man?

Jose Correira is from Valencia, he is 33 years old, born in 1982. He is a passionate Valencia fan, something he has been his whole life. He has never played professional football or coached at a professional level. But he does have a continental C coaching license.

Eurosport: “You stand here today unveiled as the new Valencia manager. As a big fan of the club, surely this must be a dream come true?”

Correira: “I have dreamt of this moment for years.” “Do you feel that your ambitions for the club are matched by the chairman?”

Correira: “Absolutely. I have no doubt that the chairman has the club`s best interests at heart and the fans are fortunate to have such an ambitious mind running things.”

The Spanish football Messenger: “Do you feel the expectations asked of you this season have been fair and realistic?”

Correira: I`m very happy with the direction we`re going in. everyone at the club wants to be the best they can be, nobody more so than me.

The Spanish Football Chronicle: You hail from relatively close by; does that help at all in getting the fans onside with your appointment?

Correira: I think it can only help. It gives me an immediate bond with the supporters and we can go from there.

World Soccer Magazine: You`ve had very little time to prepare for your first match in charge against Barakaldo; how much – if at all – will that impact upon your performance?

Correira: I`m here to build something lasting and profound; this is just the first match in what I hope would be a long era of success, and it doesn’t matter how long I’ve been here. it`s fair to say that Valencia have been struggling in the league so far this season and obviously the chairman felt it was time for a change at the top. What can you bring to the club that`s different?

Correira: I’m looking to change the club form top to bottom. This is a long-term project for me and the work starts right now.

Club owner, Peter Lim was asked why he picked Jose Correira as new manager. He answered: “ he applied actually for the job, I read the application and we sat down for a chat. After we talked, I was absolutely sure that he was the right man for the job.

Meet the players


Diego Alves - GK - - 30
Mathew Ryan - GK - - 23
Yoel - GK - - 27

We have two very good goalies in Alves and Ryan. Alves has been injured the whole season, because of that Ryan has played all of the matches. Ryan can still grow, his potential is very good. Yoel will I try to sell in January.


Antonio Barragan - RB - - 28
Joao Cancelo - RB - - 21
Lucas Orban - LB - - 26
Jose Gaya - LB - - 20
Ayemen Abdennour - CB - - 26
Aderllan Santos - CB - - 26
Ruben Vezo - CB - - 21
Shkodran Mustafi - CB - - 23

Overall we have very good defenders. We need to get a new RB, Barragan is good, but not good enough if we want to win titles. Gaya and Mustafi are world class defenders, I hope that I can keep both of them, both have realse clauses around £35M.


Javi Fuego - DM - - 31
Danilo - DM - - 19
Enzo Perez - CM - - 29
Andre Gomes - CM - - 22
Dani Parejo - CM - - 26
Sofiane Feghouli - AM - - 25
Pablo Piatti - AM - - 26
Santi Mina - AM - - 19
Rodrigo De Paul - AM - - 21
Zakaria Bakkali - AM - - 19
Rodrigo - AM - - 24

The midfielders are pretty good. Some young players that have great potential. I will try to sell the older guys.


Alvaro Negredo - ST - - 30
Paco Alcacer - ST - - 22

We have two great strikers, we need both of them to score goals every week. Negredo is still pretty good, we will keep him for a couple of seasons. Alcacer I still young, and very good. I want to keep him, he has been at Valenia his whole career.
