Valencia´s new signing appears in naked webcam video

8 January 2008 16:53

MADRID (AFP) - Troubled Spanish side Valencia were hit by a new controversy Tuesday after it emerged that the club's new teenage Argentine midfielder Ever Banega has appeared naked in a webcam chat video.

The nearly six-minute-long footage was posted on Argentine video-sharing site Subiteya.com and the number of hits it has received has soared since the 19-year-old signed with Valencia from Argentina's Boca Juniors over the weekend, sports daily Marca reported Tuesday.

In the clip, which carries the title "Banega, grande desde siempre" or "Banega, always big", the player can be seen chatting over his computer with someone for several minutes before committing a sexual act.

"We already have too many problems to comment further," Valencia winger Joaquin Sanchez was quoted as saying by Marca Monday when asked about the video which dates from the teen's time at Boca Juniors.

"We hope nothing else happens. Everything has come at once and they are not good things for Valencia and the dressing room because they affect the players," the 26-year-old added.

Valencia reportedly paid 17.6 million euros (26 million dollars) to sign Banega for five and a half years. The Argentina under-20 international trained Monday with his new teammates for the first time.

His arrival comes at a rocky time for Valencia, which crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage and has slumped to seventh in the league table.

The club's Portuguese midfielder Manuel Fernandes spent Friday morning in police custody following an incident at a nightclub.

Last month, Valencia's new Dutch coach Ronald Koeman caused a stir when he informed veteran trio David Albelda, 30, Miguel Angel Angulo, 30, and goalkeeper Santiago Canizares, 37, that they were surplus to requirements as he gives the team a facelift.

Valencia president Juan Soler later denied that the trio had been sidelined. Koeman has included Banega in his line-up for Valencia's last 16 first leg match against Real Betis in the King's Cup.
