Soldado backs Valverde

Roberto Soldado is hopeful that both he and Ernesto Valverde will be at Valencia come next season.

The Coach will not start talks over signing a new deal beyond the end of the season until after Los Che have elected in a new President, on June 4.

Even so, and with financial uncertainty also continuing heading into the summer transfer window, Valverde’s first-choice striker is hopeful of some continuity for 2013-14. 

“We are very happy with the Coach. We work well during the week and the results have been there,” commented Soldado to reporters this week.

“Hopefully the sporting project is submitted as soon as possible so as to give us all peace of mind.

“My future? I renewed last year and my intention is to spend as much time as possible in Valencia, although it is unclear whether the club need money and are looking to sell.

“Hopefully the project will motivate everyone and also the players.”

The striker then turned his attention to city rivals Levante, embroiled in a match fixing investigation.

“I think it is unpleasant for Levante, who are involved and for the rest. It is unfortunate that all of this has come out, but if it really happened, hopefully everything will be revealed, because it stains the image of football.”
