The Valencian club used it to promote the Taronja tournament to be held this Saturday in Mestalla and which will face Gattuso’s team with Italian Atalanta.

Finally, Valence also specifies that “the tweet is part of the informal language of this social network, aimed at young people, with non-macho accents” and that the only function of the profile tweet is “to inform and entertain”.
