La Liga Valencia Fans Schedule Protest, Take To Change.org Urging Action In Sale Process
La Liga side Valencia's fans have scheduled a protest for Wednesday afternoon, "when they are expected to protest against the delay in the sale of the club," according to SUPERDEPORTE. The Valencia fan base is "even proposing to form a symbolic human chain around the stadium." There is "also an effort being made on change.org, in which an initiative to push lender Bankia to reach an agreement" with Peter Lim's Meriton Holding was launched on Sunday. The change.org petition had acquired 3,712 signatures by the time of publication (SUPERDEPORTE, 8/11). Valencia President Amadeo Salvo said, "It is an issue that has to be resolved. We have all taken a step forward -- Valencia, (majority shareholder) Fundación, Peter Lim -- the only that has not has been Bankia and it should take this step. Lim accepts 100% of the debt and the Fundación is selling to Lim pending an agreement with Bankia. ... There is only one who has to take a step forward" (SUPERDEPORTE, 8/11).
