Valverde lost for words

Valencia Coach Ernesto Valverde was almost lost for words after his side beat Malaga 5-1 on Saturday evening.

Four first half goals in six minutes gave Los Che a remarkable lead, before Ever Banega completed the rout after the break.

And the 49-year-old has admitted that moving up to fifth and tying with the Abdalusian side on goal difference was important.

“We won 5-1, what more can I say?” he told a Press conference. “It is true that we have achieved a great result.

“It was a very important win for us today and at the same time, we've managed to tie goal difference.

“The most important thing was the win, we didn't really think about the score.

“But the team has taken a good step.”
