  • Former Arsenal defender Gabriel broke down in tears talking about Valencia 
  • The Spanish side lost to Getafe and are spiralling down the LaLiga table
  • The 30-year-old complained about their ‘f*****’ decline this season 

Former Arsenal defender Gabriel broke down in tears following Valencia’s 3-0 defeat to Getafe, complaining about their ‘f***** up decline’ this season.

The Brazilian left the Premier League side back in 2017 and went on to enjoy quick success in Spain, winning the Copa del Rey with Los Murciélagos.

But financial troubles have seen the LaLiga side fall on tough times, after several top players were sold in the summer amid the coronavirus pandemic.

And Saturday’s loss to Getafe saw Javi Gracia’s saw them drop to 14th in LaLiga and slip closer into the relegation battle.

Gabriel faced the media after the defeat, but was reduced to tears when questioned about their torrid season behind closed doors.

After keeping a straight face, the 30-year-old showed just how much he cared as tears rolled down his face.

‘It’s f*****,’ he said. 

‘To talk about this while playing for a club as big as Valencia is f******.

‘But we have to move forward. We have lots of games left and we have to improve and get Valencia back to where they belong.’

The former Gunners defender then stood pitch-side and buried his head in his short following the emotional interview.

After competing in the Champions League just last season, Valencia are now paying the price for cost-cutting after players like star midfielder Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin left for rivals Villarreal.

Striker Rodrigo, who scored crucial goals for the club, left for Leeds United while their most prized asset Ferran Torres joined Manchester City.

Following all of the high profile departures, Gracia was given no money to replace them and the club are now spiralling towards relegation.
