Watch: After 55 years, Valencia's kitman retires in emotional ceremony

Bernardo Espana played for Valencia but had his career cut short due to a motorcycle accident

Valencia are currently being gutted of some of their best players in what can only be described as an awful preseason. 

Andre Gomes has left, Paco Alcacer has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Shokdran Mustafi could be headed for Arsenal but they presented a united front in honoring their kitman, Bernardo Espana, of 55 years before their last preseason game against Fiorentina over the weekend.

The Mestalla stood to applaud the man who has taken care of Valencia's gear for over five decades. He had played for the club but had his career cut short due to a motorcycle accident but stuck around. The players and fans all recognise the man's input and rise to their feet to celebrate the longevity of his career and dedication.
