Celades: “We are just deserving of this victory”


Valencia coach Albert Celades was “very happy” with the victory against FC Barcelona (2-0) and said they are “just deserving” of the victory achieved in Mestalla, in addition to underlining the “effort” of their players against a “very, very good opponent” who were able to break in their stadium.

“The feeling is of joy because we have won a very difficult and very, very good opponent. We played a great game and we are all happy,” said Celades, who explained his game plan. “We alternated the two ideas. Press them up and wait for them in our field in the second part. We knew we were going to spend a lot of time there,” he said.

“We have been brave to exert that pressure above and sometimes not to back off. We knew that from that defense in our own field we would also have options. Our first part has been very good and we have even been able to go to rest with an advantage important. In any case, the players got it in the second. They have interpreted the needs wonderfully, “he explained.

“We know that these teams punish you with very little. The opportunities must be specified and in the first part it has not been that way. We could not faint, we were going to suffer and we had to continue with the right mentality. In the end it went well.” the preparer of the set 'che'.

In addition, Celades admitted that he entered his plans that Barça “with the score against” was going to dump “much more”. “We had opportunities against the team and the team has done very well. We are fair deserving of this victory. The goal was also canceled. I don't know what he has called there. If he has called this he will be well determined,” he said with exceptionism.

Finally, Celades answered questions about Rodrigo's future. “The reality is that he is here, with us, and yesterday he was in the call eager to play. He has done it again and it is fortunate to be able to count on him. We will see when the market ends how we are and comment on the realities,” he concluded .
