Valencia have confirmed that Manuel Llorente has resigned as president of the La Liga club.

Llorente, who will continue as a director, announced the decision at a board meeting today, reportedly in protest at boardroom changes at the club.

The club also confirmed Jose Antonio Garcia Moreno had resigned as vice-president.

"Today I informed the board of my resignation from the presidency of Valencia. I go with the conscience of a job well done," Llorente, who became president in June 2009, was quoted as telling a press conference.

Valencia lie sixth in the Primera Division table.
