Marchena poses with trophies as Valencia CF pay tribute to former player

A Valencia CF player for nine seasons, who also has close ties with Sevilla FC, Carlos Marchena returned to Mestalla to receive a homage on the occasion of the Matchday 32 fixture between the two sides. The recently-retired player, who won two LaLiga titles, a UEFA Cup, European Super Cup and Copa del Rey with the club, took to the field just before kickoff to pose with all of these trophies won during his time at Valencia CF. He also waved to the fans and posed for a photo with the Valencia CF squad, as well as taking his own snapshots of himself and his family with the seven trophies.

At half time, Marchena was presented with a commemorative plaque and shirt by VCF chairwoman Layhoon Chan, in the stadium's VIP box.

The previous day, the Spaniard had attended the 1-1 draw between Valencia CF second team VCF Mestalla and Atletico Levante at the Estadio Antonio Puchades.
