Valencia president hits out at Barca

Valencia president Manuel Llorente has criticised Barcelona after they signed two players from his club's youth academy.

• Pedro hopes for Alba deal

Barca beat Real Madrid to the signings of ten-year-old defensive midfielder Enric Martinez and 11-year-old striker Abel Ruiz earlier this month and Llorente has spoken of his club's frustration over the affair.

"We are angry with Barcelona because we don't understand why a club of their stature need to sign children aged ten and 11 from our youth ranks," he told Com Radio.

Llorente, though, dismissed any suggestion that the matter could affect Barcelona's attempts to sign Jordi Alba.

Barca have been in discussions over the Spain left-back for some time and are expected to complete the deal this summer.

"It will have no influence at all," he said. "The situation with Jordi Alba is a question of professional football and the other situation is a question of the youth team."

On the current progress of the deal, he added: "Barca are the ones with the interest. We've just attended the negotiations. You should ask them questions about what's happening."
