Ex-Valencia President arrested for attempting to kidnap his successor

Published Add your comment

Juan Soler the former president of Valencia has been arrested for an attempted kidnapping of his successor at the club Vicente Soriano.

Soriano despite no longer being the president at Valencia was targeted by Soler and multiple reports have claim that Soler had spent the night in prison after facing magistrates over his alleged involvement in the plot.

The 58-year-old Soler was released on bail but the terms do not allow him to leave Spain whilst he is still under investigation.

He has been accused of hiring someone for around £82,000 to kidnap the former president Soriano.

The pairs contentious relationship stemmed from an incident in 2009 when Soriano purchased the shares that Soler held at Valencia, but Soriano was taken to court after Soler had claimed that he had yet to receive a substantial amount of what he was owed from the transaction.
