Valencia has reported death threats to President Anil Murthy to police.

Murthy, members of his family and employees of the LaLiga club have also been hit by fans.

Valencia revealed back in October 2019 that the club had informed police of death threats against Murthy.

With Jose Bordalas’ team number 11 in LaLiga and losing to Real Betis on penalties in the Copa del Rey final, supporters are said to have crossed the line again.

A club statement said: “Valencia CF collects through the club’s legal services all death threats, insults and other actions against President Anil Murthy, his relatives and club employees.

“This Wednesday morning, these actions have been reported to the police, and in the coming days, an update of the complaint will be made, including reporting on hate demonstrations and threats of acts of violence carried out on social networks.

“This type of behavior is not acceptable in society, it does not represent any of the values ​​of Valencia CF and can lead to legal consequences.”

The club earlier this month urged their supporters to respect Bordalas as they condemned the “harassment” of the coach and his players.

Bordalas was named Valencia before the start of the 2021-22 campaign, just two days after leaving Getafe after a successful five-season stint.

The 58-year-old was chosen by Valencia owner Peter Lim as the successor to Javi Gracia, who became the 11th coach to leave the club in the last nine years.
