WATCH: S'pore tycoon Peter Lim greeted like a hero in Valencia

Earlier in August, we reported on how Valencia locals supported Singaporean billionaire Peter Lim's purchase of their football club.

Our man Gary Lim, who was in Valencia, interviewed a young supporter who called Mr Lim Valencia's "messiah"

Why though?

Well, they probably see him as the one who will rescue their club from its financial doldrums. 

Now, a video posted by Valencia CF shows just how much the fans love him.


Chants of "Peter Lim, Peter Lim"

Mr Lim was on hand at Mestalla Stadium to watch his team defeat Elche 3-1 in a La Liga match. 

Even before Mr stepped out of the the car, they were already chanting his name.
