JIM ‘very happy’ with derby draw

Juan Ignacio Martinez revealed he was 'very happy' with his Levante team as they scored late to secure a 2-2 draw with Valencia.

Jose Barkero struck in the 89th minute to ensure a share of the points, and the Granotes Coach insisted that it was a fair result, whilst also commenting on Obafemi Martins' insistence that he wants to leave the club.

“We are all very happy with the result,” he told a Press conference. “Perhaps we were a little lucky, but we were up against a great team in Valencia.

“They have greatly improved since the arrival of Ernesto Valverde.

“Martins' comments have distracted us. But we needed him here with us and there were no complaints.”
