Pellegrino: Three points important

Valencia boss Mauricio Pellegrino has claimed he is delighted with his side after their 2-0 victory over Lille on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old Coach was quick to praise his team after they gained their first Champions League win of the season, but was also at pains to stress qualification will not be easy.

“It was an important victory,” he told reporters after the game. “Because it was the first home game and we could not pass up the opportunity to get three points.

“Every game is like a final as the weeks go on. And this one was certainly not easy. We are working well though. I like the effort that the players put in.”
