Valencia fan favourite Vicente has returned to the club in a technical role to work with sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch and head coach Gary Neville, the club have confirmed.
Before going on to play for Brighton, Vicente made over 300 appearances for Valencia, helping the club to two league titles.
“I really want to begin working and help where I can,” Vicente said. “I played here for 11 years and now I get the chance to help in this aspect, it’s a real joy.
“It is important to return to the players who have won titles and can transmit their values to the people.”
