Djukic pleased despite Milan loss

Valencia Coach Miroslav Djukic was pleased with his side despite losing 2-1 to Milan on Saturday evening.

Dani Parejo’s second half strike wasn’t enough to give Los Che the victory, as they went down in the opening game of the Guinness International Champions Cup.

But the Serbian tactician was still happy with his team, whilst also commenting on Roberto Soldado’s rumoured move to Tottenham.

“I’m very happy with how the team played as a whole,” he told a Press conference.

“We played a good game with good intensity. In the first half we were slightly hesitant to push forward in case they punished our mistakes.

“But that can happen in preseason and is easily remedied.

“It is very difficult to score against a team like Milan, who close you down very well.

“I spoke with Roberto this morning,” he added. “If he stays, we will be happy. And if he leaves, we wish him all the luck in the world.

“It will be a great loss, but we will bring in another player in that area.”
