Valverde: Defence needs to tighten

Valencia boss Ernesto Valverde has admitted his side need to tighten up at the back after they beat Getafe 4-2 on Friday evening.

Goals from Roberto Soldado, Jonas, Ricardo Costa and Nelson Valdez gave Los Che the three points at Mestalla.

And although the 48-year-old was pleased with his team's attacking efforts, he was more concerned with the defensive frailties.

“I did not expect a game with so many chances,” he told a Press conference. “So far, most of my games have been tight affairs.

“I am pleased that we created chances. But what I want is to create chances and to be tight at the back.

“Both teams worked hard, but you could see in the second half that both sides were tiring.”
